Bacon Wrapped Cream Cheese Recipe @pinch

When we first saw this appetizer recipe we thought it looked interesting. What's not to love about bacon, cream cheese, and bread? We were not disappointed. These little gems are like eating a cream cheese crouton wrapped in bacon. We loved the smoky flavor and crunch of the bread. You will not be able to eat just one. These little appetizers will be a big hit at your next party. While cooking and chatting with a good friend about recipes, our love for cream cheese, and another great ingredient - bacon, we decided to create these amazing little appetizers. We used bread as the vessel and added a cream cheese mixture, wrapped it in bacon, and seasoned with Old Bay. These turned out fabulous. They have become the most requested, first to disappear, and most talked about appetizer at my gatherings. Make several batches for the big game, everyone gobbles them up. They can be made ahead of time and refrigerated. Then cooked as guests arrive.
