Crawfish Bacon Bites

Crawfish Bacon Bites
Crawfish Bacon Bites

This is a recipe that formerly I made with lump Blue Crab meat.  But as I cannot get fresh Blue Crab in Central Texas, so I tried these with crawfish tails instead.  Came out real good, too!  And not too heavy for a lunch alongside a nice green salad. Great for parties as they are still pleasant when cool off to room temperature.  You might want to use the entire pkg. of crawfish and 3-4 more slices of bacon to make a larger pan full.  Adjust nutritional stats if you increase recipe, however.  These are also good with shrimp and a little chunk of your favorite cheese, too!  These little bites would be OK for the Atkins Induction phase, Keto diets, Primal and Paleo as well.


8 oz. cooked crawfish tails (I used about 2/3 of a 12 oz. pkg)

12 slices bacon (I use thick sliced) cut into thirds

3 Oopsie Rolls (Improved Revolution Rolls) seasoned with dash celery seed, dash onion powder, dash black pepper, dash seafood seasoning of your choice).  The  Revolution Rolls recipe can be seen here: (Do not allow to over brown or these will be too crumbly for this use)


Bake recipe of Oopsie Rolls, seasoning 3 of the rolls with the spices noted in the ingredients list).  Reserve the other 3 rolls for some other use. Gently tear the 3 seasoned rolls into small pieces about the size of a quarter.  Cut bacon slices into thirds.  On each slice of bacon place 2-3 tails (depends on size) and a quarter-sized piece of seasoned Revo Roll.   Fold left and then right end of bacon (stretching as needed) overlapping.  Secure with toothpick.  Place on greased sheet pan.   Bake at 450º for about 15-20 minutes, until bacon is well cooked.
