I haven't made this yet, but it sure sounds wonderful. I've read and re-read the recipe and can't find a single reason why it wouldn't be! I saw it in the October, 2009 issue of Family Circle, and just knew it would be a "keeper."

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 loaf crusty Italian bread, cut into 24 slices (about 1/2 inch thick)
  • 6 slice bacon, each cut into 4 pieces
  • 118.32 ml butter (1 stick)
  • 6 garlic cloves, peeled and finely chopped
  • 340.19 g mozzarella cheese, cut into 2 pieces, each cut into 12 slices

Directions

  1. Heat oven to 400 degrees. Coat 2 large baking sheets with nonstick cooking spray.
  2. Microwave bacon on HIGH for 4 minutes or until slightly crisp. Drain off fat and set aside on a paper towel. When cool, cut into thin strips.
  3. Melt butter in a small saucepan over medium-low heat. Add garlic and cook 1-2 minutes or until fragrant. Remove from heat.
  4. Place bread on baking sheets. Spoon on butter and garlic.
  5. Top each piece with a slice of cheese; sprinkle with bacon.
  6. Bake for 12 to 15 minutes, until cheese melts and bacon is crisp.
  7. Cool slightly.

I used a ciabatta baguette and cooked the bacon in a skillet cause I also needed it for another recipe. This is so yummy. Full of flavor. Thanks Suzanna :) Made for Newest zaar tag
