I first made this for an open house some years ago and everybody liked it. It's easy to make and tastes delicious. Cheesecake is popular in these parts—it's fun to have it for an appetizer instead of dessert for a change. —Joanie Elbourn, Gardner, Massachusetts

  • Dough for single-crust pie
  • 3 packages (8 ounces each) cream cheese, softened
  • 4 large eggs, room temperature, lightly beaten
  • 1/4 cup 2% milk
  • 1 cup shredded Swiss cheese
  • 1/2 cup sliced green onions
  • 6 bacon strips, cooked and crumbled
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • Assorted crackers


  1. Preheat oven to 450°. Roll dough into a 13-1/2-in. circle. Fit into the bottom and up the side of an ungreased 9-in. springform pan. Lightly prick the bottom. Bake until lightly browned, 8-10 minutes. Cool slightly. Reduce oven temperature to 350°.
  2. In a large bowl, beat cream cheese until fluffy. Add eggs and milk; beat until smooth. Add cheese, onions, bacon, salt, pepper and cayenne; mix well. Pour into the crust.
  3. Bake until set and a knife inserted in the center comes out clean, 40-45 minutes. Cool 20 minutes. Remove side of pan. Cut into thin slices; serve warm with crackers.
