MY REVIEW

Instead of the cream cheese I used havarti cheese. I seasoned with spike. If you have never used spike you are missing out on a wonderful flavor. My grand kids use spike on their pizza. That is the only 2 things I did different. Love it.

Wonderful! Used cream cheese and added fresh chives from the garden. Forgot the butter and onion, but used sea salt with garlic grinder. Just make sure you wrap the bacon tightly. I think using a broiler pan works better than a roasting pan. Doesn't sit in grease that way. Was not dry. Decrease baking time by 5 min. and then add 5 min. to broil on other side.
