This is an appetizer that I saw Paula Deen make on Food TV. What would we do without Food TV??? It's easy to make, although it does have a long cooking time.

These are one of our family favorites. I make them with Baked Ritz and small slices of cheese (instead of grating it). I also like to use thick, maple flavored bacon. I cooked mine for 20 minutes at 375 and they were perfect! UPDATE: I made these again last night and used baked wheat thins and a raw gruyere which was fabulous. Again, I baked them at 375 but for 15 minutes, then flipped them over and cooked them another 10 minutes.
