Cheesy Bacon Pinwheels

I look forward to Christmas every year because I get to visit with family and friends I don’t see very often. I’d be lying if I didn’t say that I also like it for the fabulous smorgasboard of food. You can always count on a variety of treats and sweets for every palate. Sometimes, I go a bit overboard and make too much food. But hey, leftovers are fine with me. This holiday season, I’m serving up these delightful Cheesy Bacon Pinwheels. They are quick to whip up for unexpected guests and are typically gone before you can say “Cheese” for the camera.

They are best served hot and fresh from the oven. That way everyone can experience all that gooey cheesy goodness. Plus, the addition of bacon really sends this appetizer over the top.

It’s a bit of a shortcut recipe because it uses refrigerated crescent rolls. I used the grands because my store was out of the regular ones. I use them a lot in recipes because they are so versatile. They come on sale often so grab a bunch when you see them because there is always lots of ways to use them in recipes.
