Bacon-Cheddar Pinwheels

One of my favorite recipes is for Canyon Chicken. This appetizer recipe reminded me of it. Super easy and very tasty.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spread out crescent rolls and brush with ranch dressing. Mix onions, cheese, and bacon together. Spread over crescent. Cut into four rectangles and roll length wise. Slice each into four pieces. Place on cookie sheet standing up. Bake for 12-17 minutes.

Notes:

  • I used fat free ranch and reduced fat cheese.
  • I think you could easily substitute parsley for green onions.
  • You could also use pre-cooked bacon or veggie bacon to save some fat/calories.
  • Reduced fat crescent rolls are another great way to reduce fat and calories.
