These oven baked bacon cheese bites could quite possibly be one of the yummiest things ever!  I mean EVER! It is a delicious and simple appetizer or snack.. and I literally could’ve eaten the whole entire pan myself!  I am not kidding you!

Raw bacon would take way too long to cook for this recipe so I used pre cooked bacon.  If you have raw bacon that you’d like to use, pre-cook it most of the way in the microwave before preparing this.


Things you’ll need for this recipe:

These oven baked bacon cheese bites could quite possibly be one of the yummiest things ever!

  • Unroll the crescents and cut each triangle into 2 pieces. Wrap each triangle around a piece of cheese. Pinch all of the seams closed very well and gently roll the dough to create a round shape.
  • Cut the slices of bacon to just fit around the dough and secure with a toothpick. I used the “scraps” of bacon to wrap around the last few. You can use full pieces if you prefer.
  • Place on a parchment paper lined pan. Bake 15 minutes or until dough is browned. You can expect some bits of cheese to leak out.
