How To Get Perfect Crunchy Bacon

To get perfect crunchy bacon, there are two methods – use pan fried bacon that you let cool, and then crumble – or cut it and pan fry bits to crunchy.

To cut bacon bits, I like to cut it with kitchen scissors when still cold, then pan fry until brown and crispy.

Bacon is easier to cut when cold – and we find it crisps up more evenly to cut before cooking instead of crumbling after cooking whole slices of bacon.

Let bacon rest on paper towels to drain off excess grease before adding to cheese dip – letting the grease drain off will help your bacon get extra crunchy and perfect for this cheesy dip!

To Make These Easy Appetizers You’ll Need

We designed these easy cheesy bacon and cheese bites to use only a few ingredients that are widely available and easy to find.

  • 1.9 ounce package phyllo cups
  • 8 ounces brie or camembert cheese
  • raspberry preserves
  • 4 slices cooked bacon, finely chopped

Other Preserves You Can Use

We love this easy appetizer with raspberry preserves, but you can use any tart and sweet preserves you like!

We prefer using preserves over jams or jellies, because we like the slightly more tart, chunky fruit style and less sweet jellies that are thin.

We’re sharing our favorites below:

  • Tart cherry preserves
  • Lingonberry jam
  • Bueberry preserves

Easy Bacon Raspberry Cheese Bites

Yield: 15
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 7 minutes
Total Time: 17 minutes

Delicious super simple phyllo cups packed with creamy brie, sharp raspberry and salty bacon.


  • 1.9 ounce package phyllo cups
  • 8 ounces brie or camembert cheese
  • ⅓ cup raspberry preserves
  • 4 slices cooked bacon, finely chopped


  1. Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F.
  2. Remove the cups from the package and arrange them on a small baking sheet.
  3. Remove the rind of the cheese and divide into 15 even pieces and place one in each of the cups.
  4. Add 1 teaspoon of raspberry preserves to each of the cups.
  5. Top each cup with crumbled bacon and bake for 5 to 7 minutes until the cheese has melted.
  6. Enjoy warm or at room temperature.


  • Phyllo cups are found in the freezer section near the phyllo dough. You can bake from frozen, they are very thin so no need to thaw before using.
  • Brie is a more crowd-pleasing cheese option since camembert can have a fairly rustic and acquired flavor.
