Tailgating Tidbits: Cardiac Arrests

Recipe courtesy of Celeste Podojil



1 loaf white bread

1 pound of bacon (not thick cut), cut in half

1 container whipped cream cheese


Stack up a few slices of bread and cut off crust, then cut in half to form two rectangles.  Continue with each slice of bread.

Spread each rectangle piece of bread with cream cheese.

Roll cream cheese bread up and wrap with a half piece of bacon.

Place seam side down on a baking sheet (disposable is best)

Continue until you have used all your bread or bacon (whichever comes first)

Bake in oven at 350 for about 10 minutes and then broil until bacon is crispy.  Depending on your oven, you may want to turn each little bacon wrapped bite over so bacon cooks on all sides.

Serve immediately

1 flank steak

1 head garlic, chopped

Marinate overnight or a few hours. Note if you marinate overnight olive oil will harden, just leave out for 10-15 minutes before using.
