Cheesy Bacon Bites (one of the best finger foods EVER)

Time for another recipe.

Since my last recipe was so good for you, now is the time for a really bad for you food that tastes amazing and are incredibly addictive! :)

Here we have the ingredients needed. An onion, pepper, Cream Cheese, Bacon, and a package of crescent rolls.

Get about 4-6 pieces of bacon on the skillet. You might want to cook more if you are like me, and have to eat some because it smells so good.

While the bacon is cooking (multitasking here 0_0 ), take your onion and cut off a small portion like above.

Then cut the onion piece up.  you can use a food chopper if you like, I prefer to do it with a knife as it is easy to clean and for me, is faster.

Check your bacon.

Take a garlic clove… and press it into a medium bowl. I forgot to say you need a bowl…

So, you need a medium bowl.

Your cream cheese should be plenty soft by now if you have left it out while prepping the onion and bacon. Cut the block in half, and toss it into the bowl with the garlic and onions.

Your bacon should be cooked. IT is important you leave it chewy, and not cook it to crispy.

Mash up the bacon with your hands in a paper towel. This not only breaks the bacon up into bits, but gets rid of a lot of the excess grease we don’t want.

Here you can see all the ingredients are in the bowl. You should use about a 1/2 teaspoon of pepper.

Mix it all together with a spatula and set aside.

Time to break out the crescent rolls.

You will want to divide the rolls into two halves. Since the rolls are perforated, it should be relatively easy.

Roll them out like above and,  using your finger, pinch all the perforations together, so the rolls become 2 flat, rectangular pieces of dough.

Next, spread out the bacon and cream cheese mixture over the pieces of dough…

Roll them up.

And then cut each section into 16 pieces. I found it easiest to find the half, then the half of the half… and so forth and so on. :)

Lay them out on a stone or cookie sheet.

Pop them in the over and viola! A Toasty, cheesy, bacony…. and yummy snack!
