Bacon and Cheese Log

Danielle sent me her Bacon and Cheese Log recipe. It’s an old family favorite.

According to Danielle, “This recipe dates back to 1973 in our family and came to us from our great friends and neighbors across the street from the house I grew up in. I can remember eating it as a very young child at my parent’s parties and now I make it at my own parties. It is such a classic, delicious crowd-pleaser!”

The topping can be made in advance and frozen or prepared immediately before heating.
