Cheesy Bacon Appetizers: Good Now or Good for New Year's

These appetizers are easy and yummy--and easy!

1 pound sliced bacon
2 1/2 c. shredded Cheddar cheese
2 tbsp. prepared mustard
1 c. mayonnaise
1 pound sliced pumpernickel party bread



Cook bacon in a skillet until evenly brown. Drain, crumble and set aside.
Preheat oven to broil.
In a medium bowl combine the bacon, cheese, mustard and mayonnaise. Stir well. Arrange party bread on a cookie sheet. Spoon mixture onto each slice of bread.
Broil for 5 minutes
or until bubbly.

Sandwich Cookie Truffles

1 pkg. cream-filled cookies (such as Oreos but
not double-stuffed)
1 8 oz. pkg. cream cheese
Smash the cookies to fine crumbs. Stir in softened cream cheese.
Roll into balls and chill for 1 hour.
Melt 12 oz. white chocolate. (Some use regular chocolate.) Using toothpicks, dip the balls into melted chocolate and set on waxed paper and chill to harden.
If you like, you can drizzle dark chocolate over the white to make them pretty or decorate in some other way. We like to color the white chocolate green and leave a "buckeye" showing the cookie mixture. Any way you do it, these don't last long, and they make great gifts for friends, family, and others on your list!
