Bacon, cheese, and a little kick of spicy - you just can't go wrong with this combo! Bacon, Cheddar & Jalapeño Pinwheels cover all the bases, and all wrapped up in a nice, doughy package, this recipe is one to add to the books.
Using crescent roll dough makes this one of the easiest snacks to bake up, and you just can't beat the added cream cheese for a dreamy texture. And, don't forget about back to school - these make a great addition to the kids' lunch box, too!
- 1 can of Pillsbury Crescent Rolls
- 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
- 1-2 tablespoon(s) diced jalapeños
- 5 slices crisp bacon, diced/crumbled
- 4 ounces cream cheese, room temperature
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Mix cream cheese, bacon and jalapeños together in a small bowl and set aside.
Roll out crescent roll dough and lightly press seams together to form a sheet.
Layer ingredients evenly on the dough, reserving about 2 tablespoons of cheddar, and roll lengthwise.
Cut into 3/4" slices and place 2" apart on a foil- or parchment-lined cookie sheet. Top with reserved shredded cheddar, if desired.
Bake for 9-11 minutes, or until bread begins to brown.
Allow to cool slightly before plating and serving.
