"I made this recipe when I catered an hors d'oerves and wine reception. They were a huge hit. Served about 150 people and got raving reviews from all. There were none left!"

"These are very tasty and everyone I have made them for loves them. Instead of the pie pastry, I used pre-made tart shells which worked great and saved even more time preparing them!"

"I just made these to experiment for an upcoming event. Really, really good and not just for Christmas :-).

Love the creaminess of all the cheeses and the crisp bacon.
Definetly a keeper.
