Bacon Roll-Ups

1 (1 pound) loaf sandwich bread, firm like Pepperidge Farm
2 (8 ounce) packages cream cheese, softened
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon dried parsley
1 pound bacon, cut in half

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Grease a baking sheet. Cut the crusts off the bread slices, and then cut each piece of bread into three equal rectangles. In a small bowl, combine cream cheese, garlic powder, and parsley. Spread a layer of the cream cheese mixture on each bread rectangle, and roll it up. Wrap a slice of bacon around each of the bread rolls and secure them with toothpicks. Arrange the roll ups on the prepared baking sheet. Bake until the bacon is crisp, approximately 10 minutes.
