CHEESE & BACON ROLLUP RE-DO

“Rice is great, if you’re hungry and want 2000 of something.”

As promised, I’ve been working on a way to create a successful bacon and cheese rollup for an appetizer.  Is it because I’m a woman of my word?  Or is it because I’m always looking for ways to eat bacon and cheese?  People who know me are able to answer that question in a split second!

Anyway, I think I’ve come up with a solution to this challenge.  Instead of putting the bacon around the cheese I decided to put the cheese around the bacon.  It was as easy as handling molten cheese and remembering that burns on your fingers eventually heal.

The only ingredients involved are shredded cheese and cooked bacon.  Slivers of ham would also work.  I feel a whole new world opening up to me and my overactive imagination!

INGREDIENTS:

parchment squares, about 6×6 inches

shredded cheese

cooked bacon

DISTRUCTIONS:

The first step is to cut squares, about 6 inches by 6 inches, of parchment paper.  Then select your favorite shredded cheese.  Almost any would work but Parmesan, shredded not ground to powder, gave me the result I liked the best.  Pictured is a shredded Mexican cheese blend.

Simply place about one tablespoon of shredded cheese on a parchment square, spread it around a bit, and microwave it for about 30 seconds.  Less cheese gives you a better chance of having a crispy product while more cheese gives you a chewy product.

When you open the microwave after 30 seconds you’ll find a small round of bubbling cheese.  Carry it to where the bacon awaits, let it cool about 5 seconds, and pry up one end of the cheese circle with a spatula while simultaneously setting a chunk of fried bacon in the center.  Roll it up and admire your work.

Absolutely delicious at room temperature.  Would also be a great finger food in my husband’s lunch, if they last that long!
