Yet Another Use For Bacon

Here's a quick snack idea using simple ingredients.

I never get tired of finding new ways to incorporate bacon into the food I cook. I think I may have mentioned this fact before once or twice, but I've always been told to write about what I know and I KNOW that I love bacon.

My new favourite "toy", as it were, in the kitchen is Pillsbury Crescent rolls. I've found that pretty much anything tastes better wrapped in flaky pastry.

I cooked up and crumbled a bunch of bacon, shredded some imitation crab legs and some havarti cheese, along with some salt, pepper and garlic powder. Then, I just mixed it all together and spooned some of the mixture into each piece of pastry and folded them into little packages. If you can't find the imitation crab meat (or the real stuff, if that's the way you roll), then cocktail shrimp would work just as well. In fact, it doesn't really matter what goes in them as long as the mixture isn't too wet, and the edges are sealed with maybe a little air-hole so your yummy snacks don't turn into little grenades in the oven. Trust me on this one.

Baked them according to the package instructions (or until they looked golden brown on top), et voilĂ ! - snacks. I used some nice grainy mustard as a dip, and had them with a bottle of beer.
