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:

* Toothpicks * Bacon * Cheese *

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

  • 1 can Crescent rolls
  • 8 1" cubes fresh Mozzarella cheese
  • 6 slices pre-cooked bacon or regular bacon mostly cooked in the microwave
  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.

  1. Always love new recipes!

  2. When you say FRESH mozzarella do you mean the actual fresh cheese or are you using something similar to string cheese or the type you would use on pizza because actual fresh mozzarella is pretty wet as it is packed in liquid and this doesn’t look like that is what you have here but I want to make sure. Thanks!

  3. what would the SOuth African equivalent of crescent rolls be?
    mini croissants???

  4. After baking what is the best way to keep warm until serving?

    • I prefer to bake them just before serving even if I prep them a bit early. If you did need to keep them warm, I’d just have the oven on very low (200 degrees) for a little while.

  5. If you put them in the freezer for a little bit before baking then the cheese would have a chance to harden and be less likely to leak out while cooking .

  6. Um… This looks really awesome, but when you have something THIS GOOD don’t you dare sully it by pre-cooking your bacon in the MICROWAVE!!! :-)

    The best bacon in the world is thick cut bacon, laid on a sheet pan and BAKED in the oven. No frying!

    Other than that, awesome!

    • We/ve been baking out bacon for some time now. I like the texture better and a lot of the grease drains into the broiler pan. This would be nice also to serve with a veggie soup or chili

    • I agree the best bacon is thick cut and baked in the oven,if you have a somewhat old gas oven w/ the broiler in the actuall oven works even better….
