Bacon Crescents – Football Friday

Bacon Crescents

It’s that time of the week again – it’s Football Friday!  It also means that it is tailgating time!  I love tailgating.  I love seeing all my friends and family, making new friends and the food!  Oh, the food. 
I prefer to take finger foods to tailgates.  I find they are easier to eat (almost too easy sometimes) and not as messy as other foods.   These bacon crescents are perfect for a tailgate or even breakfast.  I just love these things.  I can eat way too many of them.  I think it is the parmesan cheese with the bacon that I love most. 

Give this recipe a try soon!  These bacon crescents would be great for any gathering – football party, Thanksgiving or Christmas.  You might want to double the recipe – they will go fast!

Bacon Crescents

Bacon Crescents
(Printable Recipe)

  • 1 pkg (8 oz) low fat cream cheese, softened
  • 8 slices bacon, crisply cooked & crumbled (I used pre-cooked bacon)
  • ⅓ c grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • 2 tsp dried parsley
  • 1 Tbsp milk
  • 2 cans (8 oz each) refrigerated crescent dinner rolls

Preheat oven to 375°F.

Mix cream cheese, bacon, Parmesan cheese, onions, parsley and milk until well blended; set aside.

Open each can of dough.  Firmly press perforations together to seal. Spread each rectangle with 1/2 of the cream cheese mixture. Roll each rectangle up jelly roll style and cut into 16 pinwheels (32 total).  Place on baking sheet.  Bake 12 to 15 minutes or until golden brown.  Serve warm.

  1. I have made these many times for family, for work events. They are a hit every time, often requested by coworkers, and I recently gave the recipe to my boss who cannot cook anything. She did a great job with them and her family has asked for more. Great recipe!

  2. Just wanted to let you know that I have dreamed of these several times over the past week…and before you start thinking that I am a complete weirdo my reason is a very good one. I had read over this recipe on Friday Nov. 5 and even printed it out in hopes of making it when I returned from what was supposed to be a WONDERFUl Mexican Riveria cruise…Yes I was one of the passengers stuck at sea on the Carnival Splendor. Let me just say that I would have killed for one of these wonderful Bacon Crescents (will maybe not killed but something close to it..haha) Thanks for giving me something to drool over and dream about in what was an experience I will never forget. Keep all this wonderful recipes coming…ya just never know when one of them will be forever stuck in one of your readers minds ~ Shauna Barrier

  3. In my supermarket, they now have "Recipe Creations" crescent roll dough. It's the same dough, just rolls out into a single sheet, so no more pressing the perforations together.

  4. Great recipe, I am going to try it next week and serve them with scrambled eggs. I came across your blog last week, and have a list of new recipes that I plan on trying..
