Cream Cheese Bacon Crescents

Have I told you how much I love bacon? Well if I haven't... I love bacon. And if I have, well I LOVE BACON! I could eat it on a sandwich, I can eat it by itself, I can eat it as a topping, on a salad, with other meats, for breakfast lunch OR dinner. Basically, there is always an occasion for makin bacon {that rhymed}


And this right here is another reason for makin some bacon! These delicious Cream Cheese Bacon Crescents are perfect for a snack or appetizer. I could seriously eat so many of these! I love the blend of the bacon and chive cream cheese. And of course all in a fluffy yet crispy crescent roll.

First you will need to cook your bacon. The recipe calls for 3 slices of bacon, but more doesn't hurt (except for maybe your arteries). I made 2 extra slices just for me to chow down on while cooking. Another use for bacon - snacktime!


Then crumble that bacon. I just wrap mine up in that paper towel used for ridding extra grease and crumble away. Then go back in and make smaller pieces if need be. Then in a small bowl, mix half of an 8 oz. tub of the chive and onion cream cheese with the crumbled bacon. I haven't tried it with regular cream cheese, but seriously the chive and onion add such a nice flavor. I don't think I would want to try it with regular! But if you don't like chives or onions then do most definitely make it with regular cream cheese.

The original recipe says to split one can of dough into 8 triangles, and then cut those triangles in half lengthwise, creating 16 triangles. I just like to cut mine up into different sized triangles. That way, we have some smaller regular-sized ones, and some jumbo ones. The jumbo ones are sort of like a treat. Anyways, so you are supposed to cut the can of dough into 8 triangles, and then half those, making 16 triangles. But whatever floats your boat. As many as you would like. As you can see, I have problems with the spreading technique because the dough is soft and hard to spread the mixture on. So this part doesn't look too pretty....

Then you just roll those bad boys up, with sides facing down on the pan. It can get sticky!

Then off to the oven they go, on 375°F for about 14 minutes or so, depending on how crisp you want them.

Then they come out like this....


... and they are gone like that (*snaps finger)!

Quite possibly heaven on earth?! (Taking it a little too far?)

Cream Cheese Bacon Crescents adapted from Kraft Foods

*Yields 16 total crescents
  • 4 oz. Philadelphia Chive & Onion cream cheese (1/2 of an 8 oz. tub)
  • 3 slices (or more!) Oscar Mayer thick sliced center cut bacon, cooked & crumbled
  • 1 can (8 oz.) refrigerated crescent dinner rolls

Cook bacon on skillet until done. Then crumble.
Preheat oven to 375°F. Mix cream cheese and crumbled bacon in a small bowl until well blended.

Separate the can of dough into 8 triangles each. Cut each triangle in half lengthwise. Spread each dough triangle with generous amount of cream cheese mixture. Roll up, starting at shortest side of triangle and rolling to opposite point. Place, point sides down, on ungreased baking sheet.

Bake approximately 12 to 15 minutes or until golden brown. Serve warm.

*Note: I made some of my triangles larger than others, as to have a few really big crescents! You may want to cook them a little longer if you like them more crisp. I bake mine for about 14 minutes.

I would be tempted to eat the entire pan! I love cream cheese and bacon. These look fabulous and I am sure there wouldn't be any left on the pan at a party.
