Nana's Easy, Cheesy, Bacon Spread

This is so easy to make! It dates back to my great-grandmother. I remember my mom making it during my childhood and now I make it for my children.

COOK TIME 20 min
PREP TIME 20 min


4 tsp FRENCH'S® Spicy Brown Mustard

1 lb American cheese

1 cup Onion

1 cup Green bell pepper

1 oz Pre-cooked bacon

6 tbsp Mayonnaise

24 oz English Muffins


Put cheese, onion, pepper, and bacon through a meat grinder. Add mustard and mayonnaise and mix well with a wooden spoon. Cut 12 whole English muffins in half and spread about 1 tbsp. of the cheesy, bacon spread evenly over the muffin. Place on a baking sheet and under the broiler until the tops are a dark, golden brown, and edges of muffins are crisp.
There's no right or wrong way to make this recipe. You can use what you like and interchange and mix up the varieties of cheese, onions, peppers. This recipe can make as much or as little as you'd like. It stores well in the fridge or you can freeze portions for a later date.
