Bacon and Goat Cheese Pops

Bacon and Goat Cheese Pops

You might have noticed that I have a bit of a thing for bacon. There were those sweet bacon-y treats like the bacon, bourbon and peanut butter cookies and the bacon caramel popcorn. And then there was bacon in sandwiches and soups and deviled eggs. Oh and remember that last post about beer ice cream? Ya, that might have been was made with a bacon maple ale.

I think I might have a bit of a bacon problem.

Bacon and Goat Cheese Pops

The idea for these originally came from Faith Durand’s post Bacon Pops! on The Kitchn. I have made some adjustments to how they are prepared since I found the pops didn’t hold together in the original recipe. The idea, however, is brilliant :)

    Made these for a partay last night and they were a huge hit! Nom nom nom!
    I didn’t change the recipe at all and the pops turned out yummy-licious. The apple chips and honey add just the right amount of sweetness to the bacony/cheesy mounds of love. Thanks for posting! I’ll be making these again only next time, I’m making them for me and only me. Mwahahahahaaaaaa

    Ugh. I followed this recipe to the letter and it was wayyyy too salty. I love salty food but this was too much even for me. Next time I will reduce the bacon and add in some chopped unsalted walnuts or pecans.

      Hi Toni,

      I’m sorry it turned out too salty for you. I hate when that happens and I love salty food too.

      It’s strange that it was too salty since the only salt in the recipe comes from the bacon but I’ve bought bacon a few times lately that is WAY too salty. It was so salty I could barely eat it and one time I has to rinse the bacon before I cooked more of it to try and remove some of the salt. I wonder if maybe you got a batch of really salty bacon?

    Super lovely looking little morsels! Just spotted them on JW’s Fetish Worthy Food round up and had to come over and read the recipe which is now bookmarked for use asap. Lovely!
