Bacon-and-Cheddar Bites
Ingredients
1
tablespoon olive oil
8
1/4-inch-thick slices peameal bacon, each halved crosswise (1 pound total)
1/3
cup pure maple syrup
2
teaspoons lemon juice
32
slices party rye bread
1/3
cup stone-ground mustard
16
small slices extra-sharp aged cheddar cheese (about 1 1/2 inches square and 1/4 inch thick)
Directions
  1. Preheat oven to 200 degrees F. In a large skillet, heat 1 tablespoon olive oil over medium-high heat. Add half of the peameal bacon slices and cook for 3 minutes or until browned on each side, turning once. Remove from skillet. Repeat with remaining bacon slices, adding more oil as necessary. Return all bacon to the skillet.
  2. In a small bowl, combine maple syrup and lemon juice. Add to skillet. Bring to boiling; reduce heat. Boil gently for 3 minutes or until liquid has nearly evaporated and bacon slices are glazed. Remove from heat and set aside.
  3. Spread butter on one side of each bread slice. Turn slices over; spread with mustard. Top half of the slices with a slice of cheese; top cheese slices with a slice of bacon. Add remaining bread slices, buttered-sides up.
  4. Heat a griddle or another large skillet over medium heat. Add half of the sandwiches. Cook for 3 to 4 minutes or until toasted and cheese starts to melt, turning once. Remove sandwiches to a baking sheet. Keep warm in oven. Repeat with remaining sandwiches. Serve warm.
