Bacon in a Blanket

I was walking through REAL the other day (the German's version of Walmart but much better quality thank goodness) and I came across a whole section of frozen GF products. That just made my day and everything that I have tried so far from this company ds is awesome. I found a box of pre-made puff pastry and thought it would come in handy and sure enough it gave me an idea... my version of "pigs in a blanket" that is super simple and quick to throw together when you need an appetizer for a party. Using only nitrate free bacon will alleviate the problem of not knowing if your sausages have gluten in them or not, most of them do. You can also add your mustard dip of choice. A sweet honey mustard makes these little treats melt in your mouth. Mmmmm good!!

  • 1 package of pre-made puff pastry
  • 1 package of nitrate free bacon, cooked until crispy and broken into 1 inch pieces
  • 1 small chunk of cheddar cheese sliced into small chunks

Cook the bacon until crisp. Meanwhile slice the cheddar cheese and prepare the puff pastry by rolling it out on parchment paper. Cut into long strips about 5 to 6 inches long and about 1 inch thick. Line a cooking sheet with parchment paper and preheat oven to 400 degrees F.

Take one strip of puff pastry, one piece of bacon and one chunk of cheese and roll it up. Place on baking sheet. Bake for 10-12 minutes until golden brown on top. Serve with your favorite GF honey mustard.

  1. Bacon. These things have bacon in them. Enough said. Oh, and cheese. I don't care what it is... if you add bacon and cheese you can pretty much guarantee it will taste amazing. And these do.
