1 block (8 oz) cheddar cheese, cut into 10 to 15 cubes
8 oz bacon, crisply cooked, crumbled
1 Tbs olive oil or reserved bacon drippings
1 Tbs coarse sea salt
chunky salsa and/or queso dip, if desired
Heat oven to 350 degrees. Line cookie sheet with cooking parchment paper.
Unroll dough onto cutting board. Cut out 10 to 15 (5×3-inch) strips. Place 1 cheese cube in center of each strip; sprinkle each with bacon. Wrap dough around cheese and bacon to resemble knot; pinch dough to seal tightly. Place on cookie sheet. Brush each knot with olive oil. Sprinkle tops with salt for a pretzel flavor.
Bake about 15 minutes or until light golden brown.
