bacon onion cheesecake

I had this at a shower in a breakfast buffet and it was so yummy that I simply had to have the recipe. It sounds a little strange but once you make it you will love it too!!

2/3 c Stone-ground wheat cracker crumbs
1/3 c Walnuts, finely chopped
2 tablespoons Butter, softened
8 slices Bacon
1/2 c Onion, chopped
1 tablespoon Bacon drippings
24 oz Cream cheese, softened
3 Eggs, beaten
1/2 ts Cayenne Pepper
1/4 ts Garlic powder
Parsley sprig
Shredded carrot
Carrot Curl

Combine cracker crumbs, walnuts and butter until well blended. Press crumbs evenly on bottom of spring form pan. Bake in pre-heated 350 degree oven 10 minutes. Cool on rack.

Fry bacon until crisp, then crumble. Saute onion in drippings until tender and set aside. Beat cream cheese. Gradually add eggs, garlic powder & cayenne. Beat until smooth. Stir in bacon and onions.

Spoon mixture into pan. Spread level. Bake 45 to 60 minutes or until cheesecake is almost set and cracks on top. Cool completely. Store in refrigerator covered with plastic wrap.

Just before serving at room temperature remove sides of pan. Serve with crackers, carrot and celery sticks.
