  When cheese heard it wasn’t invited to the roll-up party it was pretty sad.  :*(  Next time we’ll toss-in a little shredded Trader Joe’s 4-Cheese blend (a tasty mix we lovingly call stinky cheese) to help liven the roll-up party.

  I used to be on a black peppered bacon kick but for this I used Applewood smoked bacon.

  If your bacon isn’t super crunchy it may be hard to crumble. I used kitchen sheers to help me cut things into shape.

  Dividing 6 pieces of crumbled bacon into 8 equal portions can seem tricky. I spread the bacon crumbles on a round plate, divided them into half, then I halved the halves again and then each half I halved again. The result? A lot of halving plus 8 mouth-watering piles of bacon-y deliciousness that were pretty close in size. Shazam!
