OK- You are going to love this!  We were having homemade pizza tonight.   Since I was already making one pizza dough, I went ahead and made a second for these AWESOME bacon cheese bombs!!  My kids LOVE these!  

I originally had something like these out at a restaurant and they were charging $5 for one bacon bomb.  I knew I could make an appetizer using bacon that tasted even better AND for a better price and I scored!
