8 bacon slices
1 tablespoon plus 2 teaspoons fresh lime juice
1 teaspoon honey
1 pound kiwis (about 3 large), peeled, cut into 1/4-inch cubes (about 1 1/2 cups)
1/2 cup chopped fresh cilantro
2 green onions, finely chopped
2 teaspoons hot sauce
1 ciabatta or pain rustique, halved horizontally
2 avocados, halved, pitted, peeled

Cook bacon in large skillet over medium heat until crisp. Transfer to paper towels to drain. Whisk 1 tablespoon lime juice and honey in medium bowl. Add kiwi cubes, cilantro, green onions, and hot sauce. Season kiwi salsa with salt; toss gently.

Heat griddle over medium-high heat. Place 1 bread half, cut side down, on griddle. Cook until cut surface is crisp and brown in spots, 5 to 6 minutes. Repeat with second bread half.

Mash avocado in medium bowl. Add remaining 2 teaspoons lime juice; season with salt and pepper.

Cut each bread half crosswise into 4 rectangles. Spread each with about 3 tablespoonfuls mashed avocado. Top each with salsa and 1 bacon slice.

Better with Bacon – Corned Beef & Cabbage

In anticipation of St. Patrick’s Day, Bobby Flay was on “The Early Show” this morning with his spin on traditional corned beef and cabbage. Of note, his liberal use of bacon!

Anywho, back to Bobby’s recipe. I was going to post but I fear the wrath of CBS Corporation so instead here is the video (which they allow to be embedded) and you’ll have to click on through for the recipes.
