V's notes for this recipe:
While cooking and chatting with a good friend of mine, about recipes of course... with our love for cream cheese and another great ingredient bacon, we decided to create these amazing little appetizers. Taking bread as the vessel and adding a cream cheese mixture, wrapping in bacon and seasoning with old bay... Man-O-Man did these turn out fabulous. They have become the most requested, first to dissappear and most talked about appetizer at all my gatherings. Might need to make several batches for the big game, because everyone gobbles them up. I've made these a couple hours to overnight and refrigerated them before cooking as well. Pop them in the oven while your guests are arriving and they'll know they came to the right party.

Directions

1
Add 1/2 tsp. Smoky Paprika to the 8 oz tub of Garlic & Herb flavored Cream Cheese and mix until combined. On 4 slices of bread, generously spread the cream cheese mixture and top with another slice of bread.
2
Cut off the bread crust. Cut each sandwich in 3 rows, turn and cut in half making 6 bites.

Cut 12 slices of bacon in half. Wrap each bite with a slice of bacon, secure with a toothpick.
Cover a cookie sheet with foil and spray with non stick cooking spray. Add wrapped bacon bites to prepared pan. Sprinkle Old Bay Seasoning over each one.
3
Place in the center rack of a 400* F oven and cook for 25-30 minutes, until bacon is brown and cooked. For a crisper bacon, place under the broiler for approximately 1 minute (watch them or they will burn)
Getcha one before they disappear! Enjoy.
