Bacon, Bleu cheese, and Boursin come together to make a delicious little party in your mouth … and the perfect appetizer for the holidays.
Now that Nick has fallen in love with these Cinnamon Crescent Rolls, every time he sees a roll of crescent roll dough in the refrigerator, he thinks it’s going to be his lucky day. So imagine his disappointment when I told him I wasn’t making them last night. Not to worry, he quickly rebounded when I mentioned bacon.
Both the kids are serious bacon addicts. To the point that I usually have to make twice as much as I need for a recipe because they will grab the crispy pieces as soon as they are cool enough to touch.
And, frankly, I don’t blame them.
First, because I love working with Pillsbury.
And second, because, well, bacon.
Who turns down a bacon project?
Not this girl.
I am a big fan of pinwheels. It’s a super simple appetizer to make, and the perfect holiday food. You know how when you’re celebrating holidays, everyone congregates in the kitchen? And you want to chat and keep them happy, but you still have exactly 13 dishes left to make and cook?
This is when these pinwheels are going to come in handy. Make ’em first, platter them up, and serve to your kitchen guests. Their mouths are busy munching, while you can finish your mile-long to-do list without too much distraction.
I took the Pillsbury recipe and made a few changes.
I used garlic dough, instead of regular.
Because everything is better with more garlic.
And instead of ranch, I used Boursin.
The garlic kind.
Yep. Double garlic in these babies.
Crispy bacon pieces.
And crumbled bleu cheese.
Lots of it.
Smatter it all about. Roll up the dough. Cut the spirals. Bake. Devour.
And suddenly holidays just got a little less complicated.
Tomorrow? Sahara Sam’s.
Hungry for more bacon recipes?
Devils on Horseback are OMG good, and not to be missed.
One of our favorite homemade pizzas ever.
Grilled cheese, bacon, and avocado. A delicious combination of comfort food.
