Savory BLT Cheesecake
Total TimePrep: 35 min. Bake: 45 min. + chilling
Just delicious. Very popular with everyone, and also very pretty when removed from the spring form pan! Next time, I will use crushed bagel chips or herbed crackers as the base of the cheesecake, because the bread crumbs didn't add much flavor or texture. I used pre-cooked thin bacon, chopped and then crisped in the microwave for a time-saver, and it was still great.
I don’t have overnight to refrigerate this savory cheesecake. What is the minimum time you all suggest for refrigerating it, the last direction in step four (4)?Olympia, WA
I love making savory cheesecakes and this one was very good. I ended up using pre-cooked bacon crumbles and it tasted fine.

It was a huge hit at a potluck. It makes a large amount and goes a long way! Delicious!
Not difficult but a bit of chopping, will use pre-cooked bacon next time to eliminate one step. Took this appetizer to a party and received many compliments.
This cheesecake is SO delicious! I found that to have 1 1/2 cups of crumbled bacon, you'll need more than 1 package of thick-cut bacon. That's all I had was 1 package, and it yielded about 1 1/8 to 1 1/4 cups crumbled bacon. It was no big deal though not having the full amount, and it still had a delicious flavor. Other than that, I have no more helpful tips or suggestions. It was just a fabulous savory cheesecake, and would be great for parties. I will definitely make this again.
Prepared this to serve a group of friends. Everyone enjoyed the excellent blend of flavors. I appreciated the number of servings from a single recipe.
I used 3 4"spring form pans. Had to make so minor adjustment to the baking time. It was a hit at the 3 places I took it. I will be making this again.
It was a hit at my Ladies Bible study! :)
