Directions

HEAT oven to 400ºF.

PLACE bacon in single layer on rack of broiler pan. Bake 15 min. or until crisp. Cool completely.

BRUSH bacon lightly with vinegar; cut each slice into 4 pieces.

TOP each bacon piece with basil, cheese and tomato.

Kraft Kitchens Tips:

Note: If the basil leaves are large, use kitchen shears or a sharp knife to cut them into smaller pieces.

Substitute: Prepare with a block of KRAFT Parmesan Cheese, using a potato peeler to easily shave the cheese.

Food Facts: Balsamic vinegar gets its dark color by being aged in barrels. Aged balsamic vinegar is deeper and richer in flavor than regular balsamic vinegar, making it worth the higher price.
