Transcript:How to Make Bacon Puffs
Hi, I'm Chef William Richards for About.com. Here's a quick and easy appetizer that just can't miss. They're bacon puffs!
Ingredients for the Bacon Puffs
The ingredients for this Bacon Puff recipe come from About.com's Southern Food site. Here's what you'll need:
- 12 slices bacon, about 8 ounces
- 8 slices of bread -- we're using pumpernickel (use any of your favorites including white, rye or wheat)
- 2 cups of shredded Cheddar cheese -- Monterey jack works great too
- Wooden toothpicks
Make the Bacon Puffs
Lay each slice of bacon on a cookie sheet a couple inches a part. Remove the crust from your bread with a sharp knife. Then cut across the width of the bread and place the 2 pieces end to end on top of the raw bacon. Sprinkle about 3 tablespoons of cheese on top of the bread. Roll the combination into a ball and use a wooden toothpick to hold everything together.
Bake the Bacon Puffs
Place the bacon puff on its side and bake for 20 minutes in a 400-degree oven. The bacon should be hot and crispy. Enjoy.
