Easy Appetizer Recipe
These Bacon Puffs are great for a quick breakfast and party appetizer. Heck, I ate them for lunch the day I tested the recipe. SO good!! Cheesy bacon bites – I mean how could they be bad?!? I took these to a football party last weekend and these things flew off the plate. Thankfully, I doubled the recipe. I should have tripled it! LOL!
How to Make Bacon Puffs
These Bacon Puffs are super easy to make. Start with cooking some bacon. Once the bacon is cooked the puffs come together in no time. Combine the cooked bacon with butter, flour, cheese, and a splash of Worcestershire sauce. Make sure to really mix the dough well. You want to make sure that everything gets incorporated into the dough.
I like to make small half-inch balls. They are the perfect bite-size, in my opinion. If you want bigger puffs, make them bigger. It is up to you! Just check the cooking time. Bigger puffs might take a minute or two longer to bake.
You can substitute precooked bacon for the freshly cooked bacon in this recipe. You will need about 3/4 cup of chopped cooked bacon. Feel free to add more bacon! I don’t think you can ever have too much bacon. I buy giant bags of pre-cooked bacon pieces at Sam’s Club and Costco. Saves SOOOO much time! You can also substitute turkey bacon in this recipe.
Bacon Puffs are Great for a Crowd
These Bacon Puffs never last long in our house. I love to make these for tailgates, holiday parties, and Christmas morning! The recipe makes about 3 dozen puffs. I usually double the recipe for a tailgate or party. These taste great hot out of the oven or at room temperature, so they are perfect for parties!
