Bacon-Cheese Tartlets

It wouldn’t be the holidays without appetizers and party starters made with Pillsbury’s Crescent Rolls, would it? The versatility and simplicity of Crescent Rolls make whipping up a great “crowd-pleaser” quick and easy, which is a “cook-pleaser” too!

We love using up our turkey leftovers in a Turkey Cranberry Wreath. Another hit is Pigs in a Blanket.

On Christmas Eve, I made Bacon-Cheese Tartlets for a yummy appetizer before our traditional meal. Everyone loved them! They would also be perfect for breakfast or brunch. You can read the original recipe and here is my modified creation!

Bacon-Cheese Tartlets

  • 1 (8oz) can Pillsbury Crescent Rolls
  • 1/3 cup shredded Cheddar cheese
  • 1/4 cup cooked turkey bacon, chopped
  • 1 T. red onion, chopped
  • 1 T. salsa
  • 1 egg
  • 3 T. milk

Heat oven to 375 degrees. Unroll dough into 1 large rectangle. Press into 12×9 rectangle on work surface, firmly pressing perforations to seal.

Cut dough into 12 squares. Gently press each square into ungreased mini muffin cups, shaping edges to form rim 1/4 inch high. Carefully spoon cheese into dough-lined cups. Top each with bacon and onion. In a small bowl, beat egg and milk with a fork until well-blended. Add salsa and mix well. Spoon slightly less than 1 Tablespoon into each cup.

Bake for 12-15 minutes or until edges are golden brown and filling is set. Cool 5 minutes. Remove from muffin cups and serve.

    Those tartlets sound delicious!

    My fav appetizer would have to be Hot Reuben Dip. It is soooo yummy!

    Also the Taco ring that Emily has on her blog is also good! We make that often in our house. Something the kids will actually eat that is all mixed together! :)

    I love crescent rolls for making appetizers! One of my favorite appetizers is Chicken Club Wrap. I just made it last night…yum!

  7. Angie Kerr says

    Our favorite appetizer is ham rollups. We have it for every holiday. It's super easy and yummy. Use the cheap, thin sliced ham packages. Place a spread of cream cheese on each slice of ham. Then add a slice (or two) of green onions.

  8. The Bookworm says

    This Christmas, we made our own baked spinach and artichoke dip for an appetizer. It was amazing and disappeared quickly – it's my new favorite holiday appetizer. :)

    Oh, Pizza Fondue and Breadsticks, or Taco Chili, but somehow both of these often morph into main courses. So Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Dip and graham crackers would be next!
