Bacon Cream Cheese Bites
Bacon cream cheese bites are a crowd favorite at every party.
Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 25 minutes
Total Time 35 minutes


  • 1 loaf English Muffin Bread or Pepperidge Farm Original White Bread, crusts cut off
  • 1 (12-ounce) tub reduced fat cream cheese spread
  • 1/2 cup chopped fresh chives
  • 1 pound bacon (regular thickness)


Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil. Set aside.

Spread a thin layer of cream cheese on each slice of bread.

Sprinkle 1/2 teaspoon of chives on top of cream cheese.

Starting at one end, roll each slice of bread into a tight cylinder. Wrap a slice of bacon around each cylinder, spiraling to cover the whole piece of bread.

Cut each cylinder in half. (I use my kitchen shears.)

Place on baking sheet and bake until crispy and bacon is cooked through, about 20-30 minutes. Serve warm.
