Naughty or Nice? Christmas Bacon Yummies
A Christmas Recipe from Susanne Dietze
Ok, they're not really called Yummies. But they should be. They are true bacon delight for the people in my house who like bacon. A lot.
We eat an odd meal Christmas Eve, a spread of appetizers that are ready and waiting for us when when friends stop in and before/after church services. Things like shrimp cocktail, vegetables, cheese and crackers, tea sandwiches, turkey meatballs. And, generally, the Yummies.
They are sooooo good.
They are also loaded with fat, salt, and whatever it is they put into those tube cans of crescent rolls. But it's Christmas! If you feel like splurging on a naughty/nice savory appetizer, consider giving this one a try.
Bacon Crescent Appetizers aka Yummies
1 8 oz package cream cheese, softened
8 slices bacon, cooked crisp and crumbled
1/3 c. parmesan cheese, grated
1/3 c. chopped onion
1 T milk
2 8-oz cans crescent rolls
- Preheat oven to 375 F.
- In a mixing bowl, beat cream cheese, bacon, parmesan cheese, onion, and milk at medium speed with an electric mixer until blended.
- Open up those crescent roll cans. On a cookie sheet, separate crescent dough into eight rectangles. Spread each rectangle with 2 rounded T cream cheese mixture.
- Cut each rectangle in half diagonally; then repeat with opposite corners. Cut in half crosswise to make six triangles from each rectangle. (If geometry isn't your strong suit, don't sweat it. These turn out great no matter what.)
- Starting with point of each little triangle, roll the crescent into a mini crescent roll. This doesn't take much in the way of rolling, because they're small. Bacony cheesy goodness will be showing--it's ok!
- If you want, you can sprinkle poppy seeds or parsley on them.
- Bake 12-15 minutes until golden brown.
- Serve hot.
Merry Christmas from our house to yours!
