  • 6 strips bacon, cooked but not crispy
  • 6 slices white bread, ends cut off
  • 1 1/2 cups cheddar cheese, grated
  • 6 slices white bread, ends cut off
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil, for cooking


  • 1
    Preheat oven to 350°F. Set a metal cooling rack on a rimmed baking sheet and place strips of bacon on the cooling rack. Bake about 10 minutes, until bacon is cooked through but still flexible. (You could also pan-fry the bacon to the same level of doneness.) Set bacon aside to cool.
  • 2
    Cut crusts off pieces of bread and flatten with a rolling pin. Sprinkle each flattened piece with cheddar cheese and a drizzle of sriracha sauce.
  • 3
    Tightly roll each piece of bread into an elongated roll-up. Wrap a piece of bacon around each piece of bread.
  • 4
    In a large skillet, add a drizzle of vegetable oil over medium heat. Add the bacon-wrapped roll-ups and let them cook for 2-3 minutes per side until the bacon is crispy, the cheese is melted and the roll-ups are golden. Serve warm.

Expert Tips

  • tip 1
    It helps to wrap the bacon so both ends are on the same side of the roll. This way when you cook them in the skillet, you can place the roll with the bacon-ends side down. As the bacon sears, it will stick to the roll and not unravel.

More About This Recipe

  • Here’s a major problem I have with grilled cheese sandwiches: They aren’t wrapped in bacon. This means improvements are possible! Rolling some cheese and hot sauce in thinly pressed bread slices and wrapping them in bacon is that very improvement. Really, the only trick to these is to cook your bacon first, but not overcook your bacon. This is one of the very few times I don’t cook my bacon until it’s really crispy. You want it to be flexible so you can wrap it. This recipe makes six rolls, and if you're like me you will not want to share them. If I were making these for a game day or something I’d probably make four times as many! They're such a great appetizer.
