So I made these for my kids.  Well, they were supposed to be for my kids… I literally could NOT stop eating them!

These have to be one of the most delicious snacks I have put together!  I used bacon that was precooked.  If you’d like to use raw bacon, I would recommend precooking it partially in the microwave or in a pan.

    I’ve made these for years, however I use soft (whipped) cream cheese with pineapple (you can use any flavor you’d like), or you could use any spreadable soft cheese such as pimento cheddar, or an herbed cheese. Don’t go too heavy or it will ooze out. After rolling the bread (i do cut crusts off but I don’t flatten bread, tho you could if you wanted to), I cut each log in half so you have 2 pieces. I then use raw bacon and wrap the bacon around the bread one time only and secure with toothpick. I put each wrapped roll on a broiler pan and broil till bacon is crispy then turn each roll with tongs and repeat till bacon is cooked all around, or a jelly roll pan (with sides) and bake at 375 degrees till bacon is crispy then turn each roll with tongs and repeat till bacon is cooked all around, or place the rolls on a foil pan on a grill till bacon is crispy then turn each roll with tongs and repeat till bacon is cooked all around. Very versatile cooking methods too! The original poster’s recipe is a good one (with the single cheese slice), but if you don’t want to use butter, use raw bacon, and an alternative cooking method as I’ve used. They are very forgiving, and people will beg for more so use an entire loaf of bread for a party (I always make 2 loaves)!

      Mari, I think Im going to try your version of the recipe. I also like putting it in the oven verses frying in a pan..
      Thank you!

      I tried these with the cream cheese. I found that if i leave the roll ups in the oven ling enough for the bacon to get crispy it dries out the cream cheese. There was no flavor. I Need to try with a different kind of cheese.

    Sounds really good. However, it would be just the same as making a grilled cheese with bacon. Less hassle too.

      I haven’t had to heat them (because we haven’t had leftovers ;) ). You could try heating them in the microwave on a paper towel lined plate (uncovered so the bacon can crisp a bit) or just toss them back into the frying pan.

    Could you use maybe a crescent roll and string cheese. Bake them instead of frying in butter? Do you think this would work?

    A breakfast version using a pancake instead of bread along with some scrambled egg role up in there would be a fun brunch option! Yum!

    I’ve made something similar for over 45 years and they’ve always been a hit at parties. After u have trimmed and flattened the bread spread a tablespoon or less of canned mushroom soup straight from the can on the bread. Roll and wrap as you have explained then place on a jelly roll pan (with sides) and bake in a 200 degree oven till crispy

    I made these today and they were very yummy! I didn’t use the butter and I baked mine at 350 degrees for 20 minutes, instead of pan frying! It worked perfectly! I’ll be blogging about this recipe tomorrow with a link back to here! Thanks for sharing this recipe!
