This is a great, easy hot appetizer. Pepperidge Farm® sandwich bread works great with this recipe, as it's square and firm. I make these ahead, freeze them on a cookie sheet, store them in a freezer bag, then cook them as I need them. Wonderful if friends drop by during the holidays!

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Grease a baking sheet.
  2. Cut the crusts off of the bread slices, then cut each piece of bread into three equal rectangles.
  3. In a small bowl, combine cream cheese, garlic powder, and parsley. Spread a layer of the cream cheese mixture on each bread rectangle, and roll it up. Wrap a slice of bacon around each of the bread rolls and secure them with toothpicks. Arrange the roll ups on the prepared baking sheet.
  4. Bake until the bacon is crisp, approximately 10 minutes.

These are excellent! Here are a few suggestions: 1) Use lower fat cream cheese - it cuts calories and tastes great. Also, I didn't need two packages - one was probably enough. 2) Use a rolling pin to flatten the bread after you remove the crusts but before you cut it. It will roll up much easier! 3) If you flatten the bread, you can cut each slice of bacon into thirds. Don't be afraid to "stretch" the bacon out before you wrap it. 4) If you are looking to cut your costs or calories even further, you can cut each slice of bacon in half lengthwise before you cut it in thirds.


I made this recipe for a Bunco party I hosted early last week. BIG hit! They were gone before I could get everything on the table, with several attendees wanting the recipe. I then made them as a snack treat/appetizer for Thanksgiving. Again, a BIG hit! My 9-year old nephew asked for more when they were gone, and asked that I make him is very own bag to take home with him when he left that upcoming Saturday. My other nephew's friend who was in attendance asked for the recipe to take home to his mother. friends have requested this to be made for 2 separate Christmas parties I will be attending during the month of December. Sooo...I would highly recommend this to anyone. Note: While making my nephew's "personal" order, the day after Thanksgiving, I was unable to find the Pepperidge Farm Sandwich Bread because my grocery store was out of it due to the holiday. That bread makes a definite difference...a must! Also, I spread the cream cheese spread on the bread slices BEFORE cutting the pieces of bread into 3 separate sections. This just saved some time and made the process a little easier. Thanks for an awesome, most unique appetizer!:)


Really good - super easy! I cut the bread in half instead of thirds and I precooked the bacon in the microwave for about 4 minutes first. Still took about 30-40 minutes to bake enough to get the bacon a little crispy but after that, they were gone! My family loved them!
