Cheddar Apple Bacon Bites with Rosemary Dressing

If you’re interested in a throwing party for your taste buds, try these.

I used a tart granny smith apple…because I wanted the tart flavor, but I think a sweeter variety could work with these too.

Plus, bacon.


Bacon + cheese + apple + garlic rosemary spread + pretzel bun.

Excuse me while I head back in for the taste bud party.

Did someone say bacon?! On a pretzel bun?! 

These are a fantastic Fall appetizer, or would make a delicious lunch or even dinner!

(Oh, and I won’t judge you if a few of the pretzel rolls go missing from the bag on the way home from the grocery store. They are my weakness. Big time.)
