A Langley Tradition

One of the most favorite things we have to have at all family gatherings is "Bacon Roll Ups". They are easy and so tasty. All you need is a pound of thin sliced bacon, a loaf of sandwich bread and a container of cream cheese with chives. Toothpicks are needed as well.

First you cut the edges away from the bread and then cut the bread into 3 equal strips. You then spread the cream cheese onto the bread. Cut the bacon in half and it sometimes helps if you put it into the freezer to make it more manageable. Roll the bread strip up, wrap a half strip of bacon around it and stick a toothpick through to hold it. Place them on a baking sheet and back at 350 degrees until the bread toasts a light brown.

You need to make a lot because you just pop them into your mouth and pull out the toothpick and they will go very quickly. And of course we usually have to go along with these roll ups a good supply of sausage balls. For them you would need 3 cups of Bisquick, 4 cups of finely shredded cheddar cheese and 1 pound of bulk sausage and hot works better than mild.

Just combine all three ingredients in a "large" mixing bowl and work very hard until you end up with a ball. Pinch off enough to roll into a thumb sized ball and bake on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper at 35o degrees until they are lightly browned.

You simply can't loose with either of these recipes. Have fun and enjoy.


  1. I'm definitely gonna have to try the sausage balls! I'm a fan of the bacon/water chestnut appetizers - those I could eat a pan full of!
