Once again my love for Pillsbury crescent rolls runs deep. While I was at the grocery store I stocked up and bought four packages. Yes four.
I had no plan for them but I saw them and knew I had to have them. So when I came across this recipe I was glad I was well prepared to make them. Pillsbury crescent rolls and bacon – who doesn’t normally have those on hand? And oh yeah, I was so into the bacon that I forgot to add the onion and pepper this recipe originally calls for.
I also made one rectangle into a circle instead of slicing them. So tasty. And a big hit with the family.
These make a great appetizer or breakfast munchie.
Cheesy Bacon Bites
(recipe adapted from Pampered Chef)
4 ounces cream cheese, softened
6 slices bacon, cooked and torn into bits
1 package (8 ounces) refrigerated crescent roll dough
Preheat oven to 375°F.
To soften your cream cheese, place in the microwave in a microwave safe bowl for :20 seconds.
Once softened, cream together the cream cheese and bacon.
Unroll the crescent rolls and separate into two separate rectangles. Press seams together so there are no perforations showing. (Note: or you can use the new seamless crescent sheets)
Spread half of the cream mixture on each rectangle spreading out to cover the entire surface.
Starting with the longest side, roll up each rectangle until you have a rope-like dough. Cut each roll into 16 slices. Place slices, cut side down, on a cookie sheet and bake 15-17 minutes or until golden brown. Serve warm.
