Let's Make It
Heat oven to 400ºF.
Place bacon in single layer on rack of broiler pan. Bake 15 min. or until crisp. Cool completely.
Brush bacon lightly with vinegar; cut each slice into 4 pieces.
Top with remaining ingredients.
If the basil leaves are large, use kitchen shears or sharp knife to cut them into smaller pieces.
Use POLLY-O Shaved Parmesan Cheese or prepare with a chunk of KRAFT Parmesan Cheese, using a potato peeler to shave the cheese.
Balsamic vinegar gets its dark color by being aged in barrels. Aged balsamic vinegar is deeper and richer in flavor than regular balsamic vinegar, making it worth the higher price.
Serve topped with a light drizzle of additional balsamic vinegar.
