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!
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!
- 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.
