Crispy Bacon Appetizers
24 slices Zeigler Bacon, cut in half
1 (1 lb.) Loaf White Bread, crusts trimmed
1 (8 oz.) package Cream Cheese, softened
Parsley Flakes (optional)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Cut each slice of bread in half horizontally. Spread cream cheese over top of each slice and sprinkle parsley on top if desired. Tightly roll each piece of bread with half a piece of bacon - the bacon should be on the outside of the bread; secure with toothpicks. Arrange the roll ups in a single layer on a medium baking dish and bake for 30 minutes, or until bacon is no longer pink. Serve warm. Makes 48 servings.
Hint: Pretzel sticks may be used in place of toothpicks if desired.
