Rating: 4.5 strawberries
Notes: So I made almost the same thing before, but I wanted to make it even better. I used thicker bacon than before which added a lot, and I also added flavoring to the cheese. I did not add a nut this time, which I think made the texture better…more mouth appeal. These are such a great little snack, and also super impressive at a dinner party. Always make more than you think though, these are easy to pop in your mouth by the handful, and they go fast. Enjoy this version!
