If you love grilled cheese sandwiches (and who doesn’t?!) you’re going to love these just as much as I did!  Cheese and bread rolled up and wrapped in crispy bacon make the most delicious lunch and the perfect dipper for tomato soup!

I used bacon that was precooked.  If you’d like to use raw bacon, I would recommend pre-cooking it partially in the microwave or in a pan.

  1. We have made these for decades for Christmas brunch, but use Cheez Whiz instead. We partially cook our bacon strips then wrap it around the roll, secure with a toothpick and bake in the oven until toasted.

  2. The first thing that came to my mind while looking at the recipe is homemade pimento chesse wrapped in bacon!!! I’m going to do both versions for a brunch….thanks for your recipe and the idea that I got from it.

  3. The recipe states precooked bacon but the video shows uncooked bacon. I’m assuming the video is correct.

    1. The bacon is store bought ‘pre-cooked’ which is what you see in the video. You want the bacon slightly cooked or it will take too long to crisp and add make the roll ups too oily.

  4. I’d like to make these for a party at a friends house soon. Any suggestions how to keep them warm or reheat when I’m there!

  5. Like okay so I’m planning to make this recipe for my robotics club Christmas party and I was wondering can these be served, maybe like a day after they’re made?

  6. I prepared as instructed…very disappointed.Bacon crumbled…I then wrapped bacon up inside,with cheese..worked better.
