This recipe 8-12 servings (24 crostini)

12 slices bacon, cut in half crosswise

2 tablespoons dark brown sugar

Nonstick cooking spray, for spraying the baking sheet

One 9-ounce box frozen chopped spinach, thawed and squeezed dry

One 8-ounce package cream cheese, at room temperature

1 cup freshly grated Parmesan  

1/4 cup mayonnaise 

2 cloves garlic, grated

Freshly ground black pepper

24 bias-cut slices baguette (1/4 inch thick; from 1 baguette)


Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F. Toss the bacon with the brown sugar in a medium bowl until evenly coated. Arrange the bacon on a baking sheet and bake until light golden around the edges but still very soft, about 7 minutes. Transfer to a plate. Wipe the baking sheet clean, then spray with cooking spray.

Stir together the spinach, cream cheese, Parmesan, mayonnaise, garlic and 1/4 teaspoon pepper in a medium bowl.

Spoon 1 tablespoon of the spinach mixture onto each slice of bread and wrap it with a piece of bacon so that the ends are tucked under the bread (it should look a bit like a belt). Arrange the crostini on the prepared baking sheet and bake until the bacon is dark golden, about 15 minutes. These are best served warm.
