Grilled Rabbit with Mustard and Crisp Bacon

Grilled Bacon Wrapped Goat Cheese on Salad

goat cheese and bacon

This is a quintessential entrée in the French household. You can even purchase goat cheese already wrapped in bacon at the épicerie, grocery store. Typically, the cheeses are heated in the oven until they begin to melt and the bacon softens.
