If there’s one thing I love about semi-homemade cooking, it’s the amount of great products available that I can use to put a unique spin on homemade food. One of those products are the Pillsbury Crescent Rolls. I love these things so much we never have less than two tubes of them in the fridge at any given time. We use them for breakfast, lunch, dinner, dessert and especially as an appetizer.
While browsing through some of the Pillsbury Bake-Off Contest Recipes I kept looking at all of the unique pinwheel creations using the crescent rolls. From vegetarian fillings to sweet dessert fillings, I couldn’t help but think how fun and easy these would be to make as an appetizer for our Easter dinner in just a few short weeks. They’re ridiculously easy to make, only about 70 calories each and full of flavor.
To make the Cheesy Bacon Ranch Crescent Pinwheels just fry up 1/3 lb of bacon. Separate a tube of Pillsbury Crescents into 4 rectangles, pressing the center seam on each section. Spread a tablespoon of a light ranch dressing on each piece of dough. Top each piece with a bit of the bacon and a 1/4 cup of shredded cheese. Roll them up (short end to short end) and cut each roll into 6 slices. Bake at 350 for 15-18 minutes and serve warm. Easy!
