Bacon Wrapped Grilled Cheese Bites (Tailgate Ready)

You’ll love these because what’s NOT TO LOVE????? Bacon, cheese, and bread–the bread absorbs the bacon grease and you’ve got a killer tailgate/fatty snack on your hands. Put these three ingredients on your grocery list and don’t look back. I splurged on thick cut bacon because it was cheaper than the regular bacon, major sale, but don’t feel obligated. Go with what works. But one thing: DO NOT use turkey bacon…unless it’s an allergy or a religious choice…..and all jokes aside–these are amazing. ps: use what you want, i love me some pig!

If you want a healthy tailgate dish please pass go, collect your $200, and leave me your share of these because this is WAY better payment than the new kitty cat piece in the monopoly game! I did see this recipe on Plain Chicken first so I can’t take full credit. The only change I made was the thick cut bacon and let’s be honest: this isn’t rocket science folks. Thicker bacon = more bacon lovin’….like McLovin’ but only BETTER!

Side note: you could serve these an appetizer and then no one will be hungry and care if you put out mud soup as the main course. These are ‘that good.’ I want to eat a whole pan….and then put myself on lipitor….. ūüėõ

You’ll need:

  • white bread
  • bacon (thick cut if possible)
  • cheese whiz/spray cheese in a can (man)
  1. Preheat oven to 375.
  2. Cut off bread crusts.  Flatten bread with a rolling pin. Cut bread slice in half.  Spread each half with cheese whiz.
  3. Cut bacon slices in half. Place bread slice on top of bacon half (cheese side up).  Roll up and secure with toothpick. Repeat with remaining bread and bacon.
  4. Place a baking rack on a foil lined pan. Place bacon roll ups on rack and bake 25-30 minutes, until bacon is crispy.
