Onion Bacon Crescent Bites

These were absolutely delicious. They would make a great appetizer. We just made them with our dinner the other night. Could be easily doubled or tripled.

Onion Bacon Crescent Bites
from Pillsbury

4 slices bacon, cut into pieces (Or 1/4 to 1/2 cup Real bacon bits)
1/2 cup chopped onion
1 package (8 oz) cream cheese, softened
1/3 cup shredded 2% Cheddar cheese
1 tablespoon finely chopped fresh parsley
1/2 teaspoon paprika
1 can (8 oz) Pillsbury® refrigerated crescent dinner rolls
salt & pepper

Heat oven to 375°F. Spray cookie sheet with cooking spray. In 6-inch skillet, cook bacon over medium heat 3 minutes. (If using bacon bits skip this step and go right to cooking the onion).Add onion; cook 3 to 5 minutes or until tender. Remove from heat. Drain if necessary. (This is where you add the bacon bits).

In small bowl, stir cream cheese until smooth. Add bacon mixture, Cheddar cheese, parsley, paprika and salt and pepper; mix well. Set aside.

Unroll dough; separate into 4 rectangles. Press perforations to seal. Spoon 1/2 of bacon mixture onto each rectangle; spread to within 1/2 inch from 1 long side. Roll up each rectangle, starting with topped long side and rolling to untopped side. Press edge to seal. With serrated knife, cut each roll into 8 slices. Place cut down side on cookie sheet.

Bake 15 to 20 minutes or until golden brown. Serve warm
