Bacon Cheddar Appetizer Cheesecake

Here's the recipe, as promised:

Pastry for a single crust pie (make your own, or use a can of crescent rolls for the crust)
3 packages (8 ounces each) cream cheese, softened
4 eggs, lightly beaten
1/4 cup milk
1 cup (4 ounces sharp cheddar)
1/2 cup sliced green onions
6 bacon strips, cooked and crumbled
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon seasoned pepper
1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper

Roll the pastry into 13 1/2 inch circle. Fit into the bottom and up the sides of an ungreased 9-inch spring form pan. Lightly prick the bottom. Bake at 450 for 8-10 minutes or until lightly browned. Cool slightly.

In a large mixing bowl, beat cream cheese until fluffy. Add eggs and milk; beat until smooth. Add cheese, onions, bacon, salt and pepper and cayenne; mix well. Pour into crust.

Bake at 350 for 40-45 minutes or until a knife inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool 20 minutes. Remove sides of pan. Cut into thin slices; serve warm.

Yield: 16-20 appetizer servings.
