Why You'll Love This Appetizer

  • They're super easy to make. Only thing you have to cook is the bacon; slice up some apples and cheese, and you're good to go!
  • They're so tasty with sweet and salty flavor!
  • They're a finger food that's perfect for both kids and adults!

Ingredient Notes

You only need 4 simple ingredients…

  • Bacon – I just use regular breakfast bacon strips we've baked in the oven or fried in a pan. You’ll need warm, freshly cooked bacon for this, ready to wrap without breaking.
  • Cream Cheese – This ingredient is totally optional, but it definitely gives the appetizer a creamy effect. It's so delicious.
  • Cheddar Cheese – We prefer to use extra sharp.
  • Apples – Slice up your favorite kind of apples for a sweeter or more tart flavor. I love a good, crisp apple like Honeycrisp for this recipe.
