Bacon Roll Ups | Bacon Pinwheels with Cream Cheese | Appetizer Recipe

Have you jumped on the bacon bandwagon yet?  This is an oldie but goody appetizer recipe for  Bacon Roll Ups for entertaining to serve on your Charcuterie Board or just watching Netflix at night!  

This family recipe was given to me and isn't too hard to make.  It's almost Keto - or Dirty Keto if you want to ignore the carbs in the bread.  OK, it has bacon and cream cheese, so it's good enough for me!

Bacon Cream Cheese Pinwheel Roll Ups


When my mother-in-law owned her cheese and gourmet shop, we would make asparagus roll ups.  A tip was to cut off the crusts of the bread, and in a single row, place between two pieces of very wet paper towel for awhile. This would moisten the bread, and make it easier to roll up, without it crumbling.

Cook time: 20 mins

Total time: 20 mins

Serves: 24

  • 1 to 1-1/2 loaf of white bread (or soft bread of your choice)

  • 1 big cream cheese (about 8 oz)
  • 1 package of bacon

  1. Cut the crust off the bread and cut in half. Cut the bacon into small enough pieces so this wraps around the bread. Spread cream cheese on bread and roll with bacon. Keep together with a toothpick.

  2. Bake on 400 degree oven for about 15 to 20 minutes or until bacon is done.
