Loved these appetizers. I made these the day ahead of time and froze them. I then thawed and baked when I needed them. My family loved them and ate them as fast as I made them. I liked how the bacon soaked into the bread as it baked. So good and I will definately make them again.
I grew up eating this at family gatherings. My mom always used white bread with the crusts cut off, and just plain cream cheese (no chives, milk or mayo). She softened the cream cheese so it would spread without tearing the bread, and cut each slice into 3 slices. Then she wrapped the bacon around the bread...just like in the picture of this one (make sure you don't get the bacon too crisp or it won't roll well). She just popped it under the broiler, flipping them halfway and watching carefully so they wouldn't burn. This has always been a huge hit with my family.
I make these all the time but dip in an egg wash (like for french toast) which makes them very crispy.
Very easy to make! I couldn't find the 3oz. cream cheese with chives, so I used the 8oz whipped cream cheese with chives and left out the milk. This worked great! My 9-yr old son (VERY PICKY EATER) said they are awesome. Baked them for 30 minutes on my stone and they were perfect.
GREAT appetizer for entertaining, TRUE! Did I mention SO easy to do! Thye were gone before I knew! Will DEFINATELY be making again too! THANKS!
These turned out really good. I just used plain cream cheese and it was great. Took to a church function and they disappeared fast. Thanks
Extremely yummy! Since it was just my little family eating these with dinner, I put them all on thin skewers. This made turning them very easy. I didn't time the baking, but I baked them until crispy on one side, turned them, dabbed up all the visible fat, then let them brown on the other side. I think next time I will try garlic salt in the cream cheese and lean bacon. Bacon around here seems to have more meat on one side than the other and I loved the ones with extra meat. The chives were a great touch and the kind of bread used definitely influences the overall flavor. I made 40 rolls and it extactly used up 1 loaf of oat bread, one pound of bacon, and all of the cream cheese (but it's easy to go lighter or heavier on the cream cheese if you need to adjust.) This is a certain keeper!
Added finely diced jalepeno. So good!
This was a big hit for a party I took them too. DH has already asked when I planned on making them again, for just us this time. Thanks!
These were greatly appreciated at my family outing and were gone in no time. These are so good you will be going back to the table more than once!
