An easy appetizer recipe – this Bacon and Cream Cheese Crescent Appetizer Recipe has crescent rolls that are filled with a cream cheese, bacon, and cheese mixture.



  • 8 oz cream cheese, at room temperature
  • 8 slices bacon, crisply cooked and crumbled
  • 1/3 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped onion
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
  • 1 tablespoon milk
  • 2 cans (8 oz each) refrigerated crescent dinner rolls
  • 1 tablespoon butter, melted
  • 2 teaspoons poppy seeds


  1. Preheat the oven to 375ºF.
  2. In a small bowl, mix together the cream cheese, bacon, parmesan cheese, onion, parsley and milk.
  3. Open one can of dough and separate the dough into four rectangles. Firmly press the perforations together to seal.
  4. Spread each rectangle with 2 rounded tablespoons of the cream cheese mixture. Cut each rectangle into 6 triangles. (I think this is easiest to do with a pizza cutter.) Roll up the triangles, starting with the short end then tucking the two long ends in.
  5. Place the appetizers on a lined baking sheet. Continue with the second can of crescent rolls.
  6. Brush the tops of each appetizer with the butter then sprinkle the poppy seeds on top.
  7. Bake in the preheated oven until golden brown, 10-12 minutes.
  8. Serve warm.
