Bacon & Avocado Parcels



As I’ve previously mentioned Daniel and myself are having to watch the pennies a little more than usual. Typically, I would do a big food shop on a Tuesday which lasts most of the week. However, this week we are having a use up week creating meals and snacks from the odds and ends left in the fridge, freezer and cupboard and I have to say we are really loving the challenge!

So today I’ve made some yummy avocado & bacon parcels perfect as a movie night snack or party canapes…dyl-icious!

Ingredients: Makes 8 parcels

Bacon & Avocado Parcels

  • 2 large tortilla flat breads
  • 1 ripe avocado diced
  • 2 rashers of thick cut bacon
  • 25g (1/4 cup) grated mature cheddar cheese
  • 4 tsp salsa (as hot as you like)
  • 2 tbsp finely diced onion (red or brown)
  • 1/2 tbsp cornflour
  • 2 tbsp water
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tbsp sesame seeds (optional)
  • 1/2 tsp paprika (optional)

Chipotle Mayo

  •  4 tbsp mayonnaise
  • 1/2 tbsp chipotle paste
  • 1 tbsp water
  • pinch of salt and pepper

For the mayo:

  1. Mix all the ingredients together and set aside for serving.

For the parcels:

  1. Heat grill to high. Put the bacon on a grill rack for 10mins turning the bacon halfway through until crisp. Once crisp dice the bacon.
  2. Mix together 1/2 tablespoon of cornflour and 2 tablespoons of water together and set aside.
  3.  Slice each tortilla into quarters until you have 8 pieces of flatbread. In a bowl mix together the bacon, avocado, cheese and diced onion.
  4. To assemble the parcels take each piece of flatbread. In the middle of the flatbread spoon 1/2 teaspoon of salsa and 1 heaped tablespoon of avocado and bacon mixture. Be sure to leave 1/2cm clear around all the edges.
  5. Brush the edges with the cornflour mixture then fold the wrap over creating a triangle shape, pinching the edges firmly to seal.
  6. Place the parcels on a baking tray and lightly brush each one with olive oil. Sprinkle over the sesame seeds.
  7. Preheat oven to 175°. Place into oven and bake for around 15mins or until the parcels have started to brown slightly.
  8. Serve with chipotle mayo…dyl-icious!
