Jetlag from my vacation has left me pretty tired the last few days. I haven’t had much energy for cooking, but the other night, I mustered enough energy to make these puffs since they are so easy to make.

After making my pepperoni pizza puffs, a lot of people left me comments with variations that they made on the fillings. I really enjoyed reading all the variations and decided to try a variation myself. I had both bacon and chives in the house and I love the taste of both so I decided to make some bacon chive puffs.

I had Costco precooked bacon and shredded cheese in my fridge, making these easy peasy. So easy, even someone functioning on just a few hours of sleep can make these.

      Oh that’s so great to hear! Yes the bacon ones are pretty easy too. I love using the Costco precooked bacon. I still cook it a little more since I like my bacon very crispy. But yeah, raw bacon isn’t as fun to handle or cook for me.
