Bacon. Blue Cheese. Enough said!
Okay, not really. I’ve got a lot to say about these tasty little bites.
I brought these to a New Year’s Eve party at my friend, Katie’s house and everyone loved them. They’re fun and festive and pop into your mouth in just one bite.
I love a warm appetizer. The crunch and saltiness from the bacon was a great contrast to the pillowy soft dough. The cream cheese with the chive and onion also gave the whole thing a great flavor. The bacon played well with the tang of the blue cheese too.
This is also super easy to make because I used a refrigerated crescent dough.
The lovely bits of crunchy bacon. The smell perfumed my kitchen, hair and clothes.
I had dogs sniffing me up after cooking this. I think my husband tried to get a wiff of me too!
Blue cheese all crumbled up. Not the best smelling cheese, but mighty tasty.
Especially when it’s wrapped up with the bacon.
I used the onion and chive flavored cream cheese to save me some time. Spread it evenly over the crescent dough.
Then spread the bacon and the blue cheese over the whole thing.
I’m not sure why my blue cheese looks like it’s glowing, but it really wasn’t. The think the photo got a bit too much light.
Now roll that sucker up and cut off the ends.
Cut them into half inch slices. I used two rolls of crescent dough, which made about 75 pieces.
Don’t bake your spirals this close together, as I show in the picture. I just transported them to Katie’s house this way. When I got there, I took half of them off and repositioned the spirals with more space in between. They don’t puff up much, but I didn’t want them to stick together.
Enjoy them warm!
Bacon Blue Cheese Spirals
2 cans crescent dough
8 oz container onion chive cream cheese
8 slices bacon, diced, cooked until crispy
½ cup crumbled blue cheese
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
Lay out one sheet of crescent dough and with a rolling pin, form into a rectangle. Pinch together the seams if the dough starts to split. Spread ¼ of the cream cheese on the dough, avoiding the edges. Sprinkle ¼ of the bacon and ¼ of the blue cheese evenly over the dough. Roll the dough into a log and set aside. Repeat the steps with the other three pieces of crescent dough.
Cut each dough log into about 10-12 pieces. Lay the spirals flat onto a greased cookie sheet and bake for 10-12 minutes, or until golden brown. Serve warm.
