Bacon Pinwheels

It seems as if I have a bit of an obsessive personality. You see, my aunt made these little Bacon Pinwheels as an appetizer for Thanksgiving and, well, I continued obsessing about them for days after eating them. They are so cute! And tasty! And full of bacon and cheese!

Like a good food blogger, I embraced the obsession and whipped these little guys up in no time flat. I knew that until I had made them myself there was no way I’d be able to get them out of my head. I’m sad (and kinda happy) to report that making these myself really didn’t help. The kids and I are addicted to them. We might have even eaten them for dinner one night.

I just kinda winged this one, so forgive the lack of precise measurements. Honestly, though, I’m pretty sure it’d be impossible to screw these tasty little treats up.

In other news, I’m kinda addicted to all of the many food blogs out there with the gorgeous photographs and pretty writing all over their images. So…I copied them. I did. Is that bad? It’s just…it’s so pretty. What do you think? Text on the photos or no?
