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!
