Bacon Rounds

What an easy and very delicious appetizer!


Bacon Appetizer Crescents (or Bacon Pinwheels)

2 pkg. (8 oz.) cream cheese, softened

16 slices bacon, crisply cooked, crumbled

2/3 cup grated Parmesan cheese

1/2 cup finely chopped onion-Mine was just small chopped and I used a yellow onion!

2 Tbsp. chopped fresh parsley-

2 Tbsp. milk

1/2 tsp crushed red pepper flakes

2 cans (8 oz. each) refrigerated crescent dinner rolls

Preheat oven to 375°F. Mix cream cheese, bacon, Parmesan cheese, onions, parsley, crushed red pepper flakes and milk until well blended; set aside.

Separate each can of dough into four rectangles; firmly press perforations together to seal. Spread each rectangle with 2 rounded tablespoonfuls of the cream cheese mixture. Cut each rectangle into 12 wedges. Roll up wedges, starting at short ends. Place, seam-sides down, on greased baking sheet.

To create the pinwheels:
Take two triangular pieces of dough and press the perforations together to seal and create a rectangle.
If you are using the 8 oz. cans of dough, divide the cream cheese mixture into 4 equal parts and spread 1/4th of the mixture evenly on the dough. If you are using the larger cans of dough, divide the cream cheese mixture into 6 equal parts and evenly spread 1/6th of the mixture on the dough. (You’ll just end up with a little less filling if you use the larger cans of dough, which I thought was fine.)Cut the dough lengthwise into 4 equal pieces, approximately 1/2 to 3/4-inches wide.  Roll the dough up into a pinwheel and place on baking sheet.

    I made these this weekend and they were delicious. I tried serving them with some ranch dressing on the side as a dip and it was awesome. Thanks for a great new appetizer recipe.
