Cheese and Bacon Triangles
This recipe offers three ways to prepare these easy cheese and bacon snacks.
6 (8-inch) flour tortillas
12 slices American cheese
1/2 cup cooked and crumbled bacon
Salsa for accompaniment, optional
- Cut tortillas in half to form 12 half circles. Place one slice of cheese over each tortilla half, tearing to leave a 1/4-inch border around edges. Top cheese with bacon bits. Brush a small amount of water around the edges of the tortilla. Fold in half forming a triangle. Press the watered edges of tortilla together to seal. Cook immediately using one of the following methods or cover and refrigerate up to three days. If desired, serve with salsa.
- Microwave directions: Place one triangle on a microwave-safe plate. Cook on high power in a microwave oven 16 to 20 seconds or until hot and cheese is melted. Let stand one minute before serving.
- Oven directions: Preheat oven to 350°F (175°C). Bake for 6 to 8 minutes or until hot and cheese is melted. Let stand one minute before serving.
Skillet directions: Cook triangles in a small amount of butter in a skillet over medium heat until golden brown, about 3 minutes per side. Let stand one minute before serving.
