An easy and delicious appetizer for your next party. When baked, the crescent dough is soft and buttery. Inside, the cream cheese filling has bits of soft onions and salty bacon. A wonderful flavor combination. You could serve these for any occasion from game night to a holiday party.

How To Make bacon swirls

Test Kitchen Tips
We used a sheet of crescent dough for this recipe. If that's not available, just use a regular can and press the seams together. Also, it took about 20 minutes for ours to bake to a golden brown.
  • Cream cheese and minced onion in a bowl.
    In a small bowl, add cream cheese and minced onions.
  • Cooked bacon added to the cream cheese.
    Add cooked and crumbled bacon.
  • Adding a little milk to thin out cream cheese mixture.
    Mix together adding a little milk at a time until it is creamy and will spread evenly.
  • Cream cheese mixture spread on crescent roll dough.
    Unroll crescent roll dough. Press formations to seal the seams. Spread the cream cheese mixture leaving about 1/4" around the edges.
  • Crescent roll dough rolled into a log.
    Roll up, jelly-roll style, starting at the long side. Press edges to seal.
  • Sliced Bacon Swirls ready to bake.
    Cut about 1/4" and place on an ungreased baking sheet. Sprinkle swirls evenly with Parmesan cheese. Bake at 375 for 12 to 15 minutes or until brown.
