Kim's notes for this recipe:
It's Game Day at Youngstown State University in Ohio, 1992 when my family & I would attend tailgating parties that we found these delicious bites . It was when Youngstown was on a winning streak of 4 NCAA Division I-AA Football Championships with Coach Jim Tressel leading the way.
Since then, I have been making these for family & friends for Game Day & any other holiday. They are always requested & are easy to make. Truth be told, once you start making them it's a life long commitment. LOL

(My husband requested these with some homemade soup, so I decided to post a recipe for you all.)

Directions

1
Set out your cream cheese to soften.

Depending on how many 1/2 slices of bacon you have will determine how many slices of bread you will need. Remove crust and cut slices of bread in half.
2
Use a knife to smear on the cream cheese and then sprinkle them with garlic salt if you want to. Roll the piece of bread with cheese inside and wrap 1/2 slice of bacon around the bread & put a toothpick through the bacon and bread to secure.
3
Place them on a tinfoil lined cookie tray or pizza pan. You can also place them on a rack that is placed on a pizza pan to bake and allow the grease to drip down instead.

[Depending on the quality of bacon that you use determines how much grease there will be. I have used cheap bacon and more expensive bacon. This bacon in the picture is black label (not sure what that means) but there was very little grease.]
4
Bake at 400 to 425 degrees for about 20 to 30 minutes. I have a very poor stove that does not work well, so please check your wraps according to your stove till you find the right amount of time.

---Mine have to bake longer cause of the malfunctioning elements of my stove.
5
You can serve these as a side to some homemade soup like I did 4/23/13 or our favorite way is as an appetizer on "game day"! I always place them in a dish that has a lid to keep them warm but believe me when I say this...they will get eaten hot, warm or cold and will not last more than 10 minutes in a house of hungry people. I can NEVER make enough that they are not begging for more. I only make one large batch and when they are gone; they are gone. LOL

Great idea for any gathering of friends and neighbors or block party. thanks for the recipe idea--always have room for bacon. I have made some like this where you roll the bread with rolling pin then spread with mashed potato and sprinkle with cheese then roll and place bacon around the strips of bread. Thanks for reminding me. Pinched and shared..hugs.
