thin sliced bacon
jack, pepper jack, or fresh mozzarella cheese cut into strips
1 oz. abalone steaks
Place the strips of bacon in a shallow pan in the oven at 350 for 5 - 10 minutes to cook off some of the fat; do not allow the bacon to crisp. Remove from oven, drain and let cool.
Place a strip of cheese along the edge of each steak and roll the steak around the cheese.
Roll a piece of bacon around each steak; cover as much of the exposed steak as possible. Cut off the extra bacon to use on the next steak. Secure the roll with a toothpick.
Grill until the bacon is lightly browned and the cheese begins to melt out the ends. Grill plain or with BBQ or grilling sauce.
Place hors d'oeuvres on a cutting board, remove the toothpick, slice in half an serve with cocktail toothpicks.
