Onion & Bacon Crescent Bites

This Sunday is my mother-in-law’s birthday so she decided she wanted to celebrate it on Friday night instead, since we’ll all be celebrating the Superbowl (Who Dat!!).  She had a wonderful menu planned, but I was always taught never to show up empty-handed anywhere, so I made a recipe that I’ve been itching to make for something.  My bites didn’t come out nearly as perfect as those on the recipe I used from Stephanie Cooks, but don’t judge a book by it’s cover.  They were delicious!  It was all I could do to keep my husband from gobbling them up on the way to the dinner!  Even my 1 year old ate a few on the ride over!  They’re easy to make and sure to be a crowd pleaser.  It’d be a great recipe for a Superbowl party!

1 can crescent rolls (COLD!)
4 slices bacon, cut into pieces
1/2 onion, chopped
1 small square cream cheese, softened
1/3 cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese
1 tbsp fresh chopped parsley
1/2 tsp smoked paprika
salt and pepper to taste


Preheat oven to 375.

Fry the bacon until crisp.  Remove to a bowl and add the onions to the grease.  Cook until soft and let them join the bacon.  Open the can of crescent rolls and press two of the rolls/triangles together to form a rectangle (it should already be pretty much in that shape, just press the perforations together to join them.  This will make four rectangles.  Mix the bacon and onions together with the rest of the ingredients.  Spread onto the dough lengthwise then roll them up, pressing the edges together to seal.  Use a sharp knife and cut each roll into 8 pieces.  Make an attempt to make them round and formed well (I was in a rush and doing this with the help of a 1 year old, so mine look rough!).  Bake cut side down for 15-20 minutes, until golden brown.
