Cheesy Bacon Bites

I had all intentions to share this recipe last week but the holidays got me. I slowed down a little and decided to take a few days off blogging which was nice. This appetizer is a tried and true family favorite. I know the holidays are over but this would be perfect for the Superbowl or any party. You can always make the mixture ahead of time and then just spread on the bread before cooking. Enjoy!

1 small can sliced olives

2 cups shredded sharp cheddar cheese

1 cup mayo

2 tablespoons diced white onion

1/2 cup bacon bits + more for topping

Rye bread cut into squares (you can sometimes find the “cocktail size ” bread that is already small squares.

In a food processor blend the mayo, olives, cheese, onion, and 1/2 cup bacon bites. On a baking sheet lay out the rye bread squares. Top with the olive cheese mixture then sprinkle all with extra bacon bits. Bake at 350 degrees 10-15 minutes until cheese is bubbly.

    I do something very similar, but put it on English muffins! Rye bread isn’t my jam. When I make them, I double or even triple the recipe and freeze the muffins whole that I don’t need, and once it’s party time, I cut them into quarters, pop them in the oven for 20 minutes and have a no-prep dish!
