Bacon Parmesan Puffs

These yummy little bites are so easy to make
and only take about 10 minutes from start to finish!



1/2 cup Mayonnaise
1/2 cup Parmesan Cheese
1/4 cup Cheddar Cheese
1/4 cup Bacon Pieces
1/2 t dried Basil
4 slices Bread

Mix mayonnaise, Parmesan, cheddar, bacon and basil in a large bowl. Cut rounds out of the bread with a small cookie cutter. Toast on one side under the broiler. Remove from oven. (You can do this step ahead of time and freeze in zip loc freezer bags.) Using a small scoop (cookie size scoop) place one scoop of cheese mixture on the un-toasted side of each round. Place under the broiler for 3-4 minutes or until golden brown. Serve immediately.

  1. So glad I saw you share these, love anything with bacon! These would make a great after school snack for the kids to tide them over till dinner. That is, if I can share them, just might have to make 2 batches!

  7. You lost me with the mayonnaise on this one. Is there something that could be substituted for it, or could it be left out entirely ?

    1. Mayo is what binds this together. You could try half mayo and half sour cream. The only problem with sour cream is that when baked it turns to mainly water. It will make a mess and leave you with a soggy bottom. It needs at least 1/2 mayo.

  8. I don't like mayonnaise (or Miracle Whip), either. Would sour cream work as a substitute? (Though I suppose mayo is only egg yolks, vinegar, and a little oil, so maybe it'll taste OK in the muffin???)
