Bakin’ with Bacon on Saturday


Welcome to The Castle Kitchen!  King Teddy is cookin’ !

Hello friends………….I had so much fun making that easy peasy simple snack for you last week that I thought I’d do another easy peasy simple snack for you today!     My Mom is a sucker for crostini with almost anything on it and this is – well – almost sinfully delicious.    You’ve GOTTA try it!

Ah My King! I shall prepare this for you and your Royal guests at your next Castle Cocktail Party!

Almond Bacon Cheese Crostini


  • 1 French bread baguette (1 pound), cut into 36 slices
  • 2 cups shredded Monterey Jack cheese
  • 2/3 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/2 cup sliced almonds, toasted
  • 6 bacon strips, cooked and crumbled
  • 1 green onion, chopped
  • Dash salt
  • Additional toasted almonds, optional


  • Place bread slices on an ungreased baking sheet. Bake at 400° for 8-9 minutes or until lightly browned.
  • Meanwhile, in a large bowl, combine the cheese, mayonnaise, almonds, bacon, onion and salt. Spread over bread. Bake for 7-8 minutes or until cheese is melted. Sprinkle with additional almonds if desired. Serve warm.

See what I mean?    EASY………………and who’d have thought that bacon and almonds with cheese could possibly taste this good………..well………it’s a winner and it’s easy so that had my attention right off the bat.

What do you think??


Uhhuh…….and there’s some cheese around too! Two things you would LOVE to wrap your mouth around!

Bacon makes everyone happy doesn’t it?    I do recognize that not everyone eats bacon………or if they do it’s turkey bacon (which is delicious)……..but once in a while we deserve a treat – something we don’t normally eat because maybe it’s not that good for us.   I “get” that believe me.   But all of us need to spoil ourselves SOMETIMES!

Yep – we all need the occasional tingle…….!

Give this one a try.    Trust me.

Have a good Saturday citizens of Baconia – it is so decreed by your KING!

  1. It sounds wonderful and you were right I am sure it would work for tomorrow BUT it will get my… wait for it… cook top dirty! Hahaha! I will show it to CH. I can buy crostini at the Publix. I was kinda thinking little meatballs on little Hawaiian rolls with a bit of sauce. Last weeks appetizer was good!

  2. That looks tasty chef Teddy. We had our bacon fix this week when The Great One was here, we had BLT’s, well, she had grilled cheese and a side of bacon. XO

  3. I had a cat show today, but do you know what they were serving at breakfast? Waffles! Isn’t that the most ridiculous thing you ever heard? For some reason my human disagrees (even though she didn’t get any) – she thought they looked good.


  4. I noticed at work this morning that Smithfield has a contest where the grand prize is “A Lifetime Supply of Bacon.” I have no idea how much bacon a lifetime’s supply would be, but I’ll bet it’s a lot. Even if you account for the shortened lifespan of eating a lifetime’s supply of bacon…


  5. Teddy, this sounds super delicious and so easy. Mom and Dad had bacon this morning. We didn’t. Dad used to get baguettes all the time, but hasn’t since he and Mom have been dieting. We are going to sneak it onto his shopping list. We have everything else. Thanks for another yummy recipe.

    • Oh I hope your Dad gets a baguette so your Mom can try this recipe because it’s super yummy. I think your Mom and Dad COULD have shared their bacon with you this morning though!!!

      Hugs, Teddy
