Ingredients

4
soft pretzel sticks, cut in half crosswise & lengthwise
12 slice
bacon (4 slices chopped & cooked, 8 slices raw)
1/4 c
hummus
1/4 c
cream cheese, softened
8
grape tomatoes, sliced in 4 round slices each
1/4 c

Step-By-Step

1Preheat the oven to 350 degrees
2Place the 16 pretzel pieces, cut-side down, on a baking sheet and bake for 3-5 minutes to crisp; let cool
3In a small bowl mix together the chopped bacon, the hummus and the softened cream cheese; set aside
4Once the pretzel sticks have cooled, spread 1 - 1 1/2 tbsp of the hummus on each of the 8 pretzel bottoms
5Top the hummus with 3-4 slices of the grape tomatoes on each pretzel bottom
6Shake the parmesan on top of the tomatoes and put the other half of each pretzel stick on the top (making 8 mini pretzel sandwiches)
7Wrap each of the 8 mini sandwiches with 1 piece of the raw bacon; make sure that when you wrap the pretzels that each of the ends of the bacon are on the underside of the pretzel
8Place the bacon wrapped pretzel sticks on a baking rack that has been placed in a baking pan; again making sure that the ends of the bacon are secured on the underside of each pretzel
9Bake at 350 degrees for 25 minutes or until the bacon is cooked and crispy
10Let the bacon wrapped pretzel sticks drain on a paper towel for 5 minutes before serving
11You can either serve these as they are or cut them in 2-3 pieces per pretzel stick to serve as appetizer bites
