1 Tbsp. flour
1 tsp. minced garlic

ble mixture, almonds, bacon and cheese slices in 2 quart baking
dish, ending with bacon and almonds in a ring on the top.

cover and refrigerate. To heat, uncover and bake in a preheat-
ed 400 degrees oven for 30 to 35 minutes. Makes 6 servings.
Note: If you do not wish to use bacon, use 3 table-
spoons vegetable oil instead.
