This recipe is very simple to make and REALLY makes a great appetizer! I am on Weight Watchers so you can lower "Points" by using 2% cheddar, lower fat bacon and mayo with the same results! Yum.

These were simple and fast to make. Acutally made the "cheese and bacon mix" ahead of time which made it even easier day of .... They tasted fine, am thinking the pumpernickle bread is a little too strong for mildness of cheese mix. Next time may try plain crostini or even warm cheese mix in crock pot and use as a dip versus topping. Will make again but will make changes beforehand.

Delicious and hearty snack! This recipes is very flexible and easy to change with a bit of grated onion, or a 1/2t. of horseradish. Cheeses can be substituted as well. It's great with Swiss cheese in place of Cheddar. They freeze well too. After cheese mixture is spread on the bread, I freeze them on a cookie sheet and when frozen, transfer them to a plastic container or bag. To bake- just place on sheet and pop into the oven. (only takes a minute or two longer than fresh.)

Yes this is the best all-time hors d'oeuvre ever. Add some horseradish instead of the mustard and a dash of sherry, and you will pump up those delicious flavors even more!

This is a great recipe for an easy appetizer! However, it is a bit salty. Next time I will try using the low sodium bacon instead. I also improvised with half of the appetizers by adding one slice of a grape tomato (like a tiny plum tomato) to the top of the bread before adding the mixture. It turned out very tasty, as the tomato stayed firm under the filling. I'm also going to try using this as a filling for my homemade dough. Thanks!

I have just made my third batch of these for the Holidays and about to make one more for New Year's Eve! Fantastic reviews from my guests. I did, however, make it easy on myself and used Oscar Meyer bacon bits instead of cooking all that bacon....same flavor!
