Quick. I needed an appetizer for the Super Bowl this weekend that was quick and easy and didn't require a lot of prep time.
This was genius! What else can I say about them? (tooting my own horn, but that's what blogs are for).
I was craving a BLT for lunch, and decided to make mini versions to serve as a first course for the game, and what guy doesn't LOVE bacon?
Here's the no brainer recipe:
Cut multi grain bread slices into quarters (so you have 4 pieces per slice) or with a cookie cutter into rounds. Toast the bread lightly if you like (I like).
Use a half slice of bacon per each bread square or round. Cook bacon till crisp and drain on paper towels.
~ Swipe each toast w/ Hellman's mayo.
~ Top with a half a slice of crisp bacon.
~ Top with some baby arugula leaves
~ Finish with a yellow cherry tomato half (so it looks like an egg yolk!).
You can prepare them an hour before serving and keep at room temperature.
They were devoured in seconds.
These score for my favorite quick appetizer!
Check out tomorrow's post for a great Super Bowl dessert.
