Cheese Snacks? Wrapped in crispy bacon? Ok, I’m all ears!

Cheese Snacks on its own, gets my attention, but when someone suggests, I wrap that cheese snack in bacon, I am making happy puppy sounds! Bacon and cheese always a classic combination! You only have to drool over this Pinterest page and you will be making happy puppy sounds too!

Your kids are going to love this and be warned, once they know how to make this, you will have to stock up on streaky bacon and cheese squares! Trust me, it is not only the the kids who love the bacon and cheese combination. Take a look at this delightful tart with bacon and cheese and tell me who would not want a piece or two of that! Even our classic South African Roosterkoek, comes to life with a generous helping of grated cheese!

These cheese snacks have been doing the rounds on Facebook and Pinterest, but I found out about them when I saw it on Man-Kos, the blog of Colyn Serfontein! I invited Colyn to come and share some of his man-friendly recipes with us on RSG this coming Thursday! I asked him for an easy recipes and after a few  suggestions, he sent me this link! I think you are going to love it, my crew definitely did!

What would you suggest as man-food? Burgers, steaks or potjies? What does your hubby like to cook, or does he ever cook!

Cheese Snacks

Pleas write your idea of what is the perfect man-food to cook AND eat in the comment below! Best suggestion, will make an appearance on my show! come on, share with us!


Cheese Snacks wrapped in Crispy bacon

serves 6  (2 per person)


12 slices white bread

12 slices processed cheese

12 strips streaky bacon

olive oil

fresh rosemary


Preheat the oven to 170C. Lay the slices of bread on a work surface and flatten each one, by rolling it out with a rolling pin. Lay a slice of cheese on each slice of bread. Roll up the slice of bread and wrap the bacon around it. Place on a baking sheet, drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle a few sprigs rosemary over the top. Bake until the rolls are golden brown and crispy. Serve with tomato or barbecue sauce! For a step-by-step version of this recipe, please visit Man-kos.

Cook’s Notes 

– Do remove the crust from the bread, I did not and I should have – Lesson learned!

– the ultimate snack would have more bacon, but that would be too-much-of-a-good-thing, you decide!

– you can use grated mozzarella and a smothering of tomato sauce in the snack if you have issues with processed cheese!

    These look really amazing. You want to know my husbands favorite man-food ? Well it is Ramen Noodles & thats the only thiing he can make at all,indoors, but put him in charge of the bbq grill & you would think he was a professional chef. He makes the most amazing basil grilled chicken.
