Bacon Bites

Tuesday is here again and it's time for another yummy recipe.

Today I've got the perfect Super Bowl snack for you to take to your parties this weekend. It's super easy to make and can be done ahead of time too, if you need to. I give you Bacon Bites:

Sandwich bread (white or wheat)
Flavored Cream Cheese (I used onion and chive)
Shredded Cheddar Cheese

Cut the crusts from the bread slices (save them for your Bread Pudding). Using a rolling pin, roll the bread slices until they are flat.

Spread the flattened bread with cream cheese and sprinkle with cheddar. Then roll it all up into a cigar shape.

Wrap bacon around the rolled bread, tucking the end under to keep it from unrolling.

Place in freezer for 30 minutes (or up to 3 days) to firm up. Remove from freezer and cut each roll into 3 pieces. Stand pieces on end on a baking sheet and bake at 350 for 35-40 minutes.

Notes: You'll notice there are no amounts listed with the ingredients because it really just depends on how many you want to make. Also, instead of flavored cream cheese you can just use plain cream cheese and add in the spices, veggies and flavors you want.

I got this recipe from the King Arthur Flour Blog. The clever people that work in their test kitchens blog about their latest and greatest recipes. If you haven't seen their site you should check it out. There is always something yummy there.
