#99 - Melted Bacon-Cheese Toasts

We headed out of our house not to return again until 2012, two recipes still to be completed by midnight. Those last two would have to be completed at Nori and Gio's house, the site of this year's New Year's Eve party.

This one is an appetizer that we had at Peppi's house for the first time last Thanksgiving, and then we had it again this Thanksgiving, and we knew it was too good to have only once a year.

Melted Bacon-Cheese Toasts

From Luke Jones So as you can see from the ingredients, this is basically bacon, cheese, mayo, and onions on little tiny pieces of toast. What's not to like? And the steps are pretty easy too. You cook and chop the bacon. You mix it with the cheese, onions, and mayo. And then you plop them on the little pumpernickel toasts. Once they come out the broiler, they are magically delicious. The mayo binds everything for mixing, but the final topping doesn't become too greasy or anything. It's delicious bacon and cheddar, lightly browned on crispy toasts. Next time you have to bring an appetizer to some sort of party, if you're going to have access to the broiler, make these. We're pretty sure whoever's hosting will forgive you for using their precious oven space.
  • 1 lb bacon
  • 8 oz white cheddar cheese, grated
  • 1/2 medium white onion, diced
  • Mayonnaise
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • 1 package cocktail pumpernickel bread
  1. Fry the bacon strips until crispy, over medium heat.
  2. Crumble the cooked bacon into small pieces.
  3. In a large bowl, mix the bacon, cheese, and onion.
  4. Add enough mayonnaise to moisten the mixture and bind it together.
  5. Salt and pepper to taste.
  6. Spread the cocktail toasts on a large baking sheet.
  7. Place a spoonful of the bacon-cheese mixture on each toast.
  8. Broil toasts until the cheese is melted and the toast crisps up.
