Mmmm Bacon - not much is better than Bacon! Add some cheese and a flaky pastry and you have an amazing snack or appetizer. These Bacon Cheese Pastries are so easy and quick to make.
Let me show you how easy it is to make these!
Bacon Cheese Pastries
- Premade Frozen Puff Pastry
- 1 package of Bacon
- Shredded Cheese
I use premade puff pastry found in the frozen food dessert section. You simply thaw the pastry, add a sweet or savory filling and bake. Not much simpler then that! The package of puff pastry has 2 sheets in the box. 1 sheet will make 6 Bacon Cheese Pastries. Follow the package directions for thawing out the pastry (it can take about 40 minutes to thaw out).
While the pasty is thawing out start making your bacon. For this recipe I cooked the bacon in a microwave because it is just so simple. On a microwave safe dish add 2 paper towells and then strips of bacon. Make sure the bacon does not touch each other.
Cover the bacon with two more paper towells. Cook time depends on how many slices of bacon your cooking. I wanted my bacon only partically cooked so it could easily roll up into the pastry. Add about 40 seconds per slice of bacon for cooking time. Remove from paper towells as soon as you can or they will stick to the towells.
Now Preheat your oven to 400 degrees. Once the pastry begins to thaw gently unfold it. I like to roll it out just a little bit thinner. Cut it equally in thirds and then the thirds each in half lenghwise.
Sprinkle your shredded cheese over your pastry strips
Add your bacon.
Fold over the pastry
Then roll up and place into a cupcake tin
Bake at 400 degrees for 18 to 20 minutes.
How simple and easy is that? I love how easy this is to put together - a perfect and quick appetizer or snack!
