Bacon Olive Cracker Melts

1 (5-0z) jar process-cheese spread, any type
1/4 cup chopped pimento-stuffed green olives
3 bacon slices, crisp-cooked, crumbled
Dash red (cayenne) pepper (we like it spicy so I give it a big dash)
24 melba-toast rounds or crackers
Olive slices for garnish, optional (but they look pretty)

Place cheese spread in a 1-quart bowl. Microwave at 10% (low) 1 minute or until soft. Stir in olives, bacon and cayenne.

Place Melba toast or crackers in a circle on a round 12-inch microwave platter. Spread about 1 teaspoon cheese mixture on each cracker. Garnish each cracker with an olive slice if desired.

Microwave at 100% (high) 45 to 60 seconds or until cheee melts; give plate a half turn after 30 seconds.

Makes 24 appetizers.
