Spicy Bacon Ranch Pinwheels

These are a really quick, easy appetizer.  You need
1 package crescent rolls
Grated Cheddar Cheese (or any kind you like)
Spicy Ranch dressing
Crispy crumbled bacon
Finely chopped Green onions (which I forgot to buy but I bet they'd be great in this recipe!)

By the way, where would society be if Crescent roll dough had not been invented???  If the Nazis would have had it, they'd have won the war & we'd all be speaking German today!

Lay out your crescent roll dough into two rectangles, and pinch the seams together.

Next, brush on about 2 - 3 Tbls. of the dressing onto each one

Sprinkle on about a 1/4 cup each of cheese and bacon, and about 2 chopped green onions, assuming you remembered to buy them.

Do NOT roll up from the long side:

(This is wrong!)

Roll up this way (from the short side):

With a serrated knife, use a sawing motion to cut each one into 8 pieces.  Lay out on a cookie sheet and bake at 350 for 13 to 17 minutes, until golden brown. 

Serve warm or at room temp.  Cold bacon is just nasty.


  1. In order to give credit where credit is due, I got this from (believe it or not!) the Pillsbury website.

  2. These look yummy! Making them for Christmas?
