Bacon Bites

I used a “cheap” package of bacon and cut the whole pack in half with a large knife. I placed 1/2 teaspoon of Parmesan cheese on a club cracker and wrapped each cracker with a half a slice of bacon. I put the crackers on a rack that was on a baking sheet and baked them in the oven for 2 hours on 250. Remove from oven and let them cool on the rack.

The last two days at work have been very stressful, so tonight I decided I needed to fix something a little naughty.
I really didn’t need these but - oh my - they were just what I needed! I found this recipe in an old recipe book. My mom used to make them years ago. I don’t remember her adding the Parmesan cheese but then my mom doesn’t remember making these either! They were very easy. The hardest part is waiting for them to bake for 2 hours while my house is bursting with the smell of bacon cooking. I’ll have to remember to make these for the holidays. Needless to say – my cholesterol jumped up a few points tonight! After 2 of these and a glass of wine – I feel like a new woman! I may make it through one more day of work after all!

Oh, YUM those look delicious! Like you, I may not NEED them, but I sure do WANT them! I'll bet they'd be good sprinkled with a little brown sugar too....

Happy Friday! Only one more day till the weekend! ;o)

Love and hugs,

Oh man! Those look good! Really, really good! Can I use my pregnancy as an excuse to get away with making them? And eating way too many of them? I think I can! I'll let you know how it goes!

And with a glass of wine? Heavenly!

Although, I'll have to hold off on the wine for a few more months! :-)

Wowza. Just what I'm craving right now with my PMS-y appetite. Grease and salt. Heavenly. And bacon with anything is a hit in my book. I can't wait to make these. Thanks for sharing.
