Cream Cheese with Garlic & Bacon Filled Crescents: A Progressive Holiday Party + Giveaway!

With the holiday season upon us, holiday parties are here as well.
I have a quick and easy recipe for you today that would be a great appetizer to serve at your next holiday party.

Want to know how to make them?
-Pillsbury Crescent Rolls, 2 tubes
-8 oz cream cheese, softened
-5 slices of Bacon
-1 glove of garlic, minced finely or you can buy the garlic paste.

To Make:
-Cook your bacon. The crispier the better so you can break it into the pieces. Drain. Once cooled, place the slices into a baggies and break into small pieces.
-Combine the bacon with the cream cheese along with the garlic. Stir well and set aside.
-Open up the crescent rolls and cut each triangle into two pieces. Each tube starts with 8 rolls and you should create 16. You also could just leave them their regular size for larger appetizers.
-Spread the cream cheese mixture onto each crescent roll. Then roll up.
-Bake according to the directions on the tube.

** Note: if using garlic paste, a little goes a long way! So put a little in the cream cheese mixture and taste to see if you need to add more.

That’s it!
So simple right?!

    These sound great! I'd also like to try them sweet instead of savory — cream cheese with some powdered sugar mixed in (not too much) and mini chocolate chips! YUMMMM!
