Cheesy Bacon Bombs

Again, I have made a dish that requires crescent rolls. Oh Lord! I have a problem! But these things are seriously "The Bomb"!!!! The cheesy bacon bomb! Super easy to make and super cheap. I used mozzarella but next time I am thinking about using pepper jack cheese, for an extra KICK! This recipe is adapted from Ohbiteit.  I only added garlic butter to the end to give it some more flavor. This is a MUST recipe...especially on these cold nights when you just want some comfort food. Thumbs up!
Ingredients:
1 package of bacon
1 tube of Crescent rolls
3 Mozzarella string cheese sticks, cut into small cubes
2 tablespoons of Butter
Garlic Powder
Directions:
1) If using a deep fryer, set the temp to 350°F. If not, heat about 2" of oil in a pot at 350°F.


2) Spread out the crescent rolls on a baking sheet and pinch together the seams.



3) Cut the crescent rolls into quarter squares.




4) Place a Mozzarella cube into each crescent roll square and then seal it.













5) Wrap the Mozzarella/crescent cube with one slice of bacon and then use a toothpick to bind it all together.
 




6) Fry the bites in oil at 350°F for about 4-5 minutes, or until the bacon is nice and crispy.




7) Remove the bites from the fryer or pan and let drain on a paper towel.




8) Heat butter and mix with garlic powder. Using a pastry brush, brush the butter mixture over the bacon bombs and let sit for about 5 minutes, then ENJOY!
