Parmesan and Bacon Bites Recipe

My family first tried these little bites of amazingness at a Christmas party years ago, and they are still a family favorite around the holidays. They are pretty versatile as I've also made them during the summer. Maybe it's just me, but when you pair these with a glass of red wine the flavor seems to be even more enjoyable. As an added plus, my two kids love them and it helps to expand their usual mac-and-cheese cravings around dinner time.

Here is what you will need. Prep time is about five minutes. For the bacon I usually plan on making bacon for breakfast that morning or the morning before and saving two pieces for this recipe.

• 2 cups Parmesan cheese
• 1/2 cup chopped green onions or chives
• 1 cup mayonnaise
• 2 tablespoons sour cream
• 1/2 cup crumbled cooked bacon
• 1 loaf party rye bread (or 2 loaves to double the recipe for a larger crowd)

Mix all of the ingredients together and spread on the party rye. Place in the oven under broiler for 3 to 5 minutes until bubbly. Make sure to check them after 3 minutes as they sometimes brown quickly.

To serve, place on a tray or platter and serve alongside a glass of wine, beer or your favorite cocktail. Voilà— you now have a quick, easy and delicious appetizer that your guests are sure to enjoy!
