  • 1 can Pillsbury Refrigerated Crescent Dough
  • 1/2 cup cheddar cheese shredded
  • 1 lb bacon cooked but still pliable
  • Ranch for dipping if desired


  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees and line a large baking sheet with parchment paper or foil (parchment is recommended).

  2. On a lightly floured service, roll out dough into a rectangle shape and press the seams together. To help them stick better, you can wet the tips of your fingers with water as you work.
  3. Sprinkle shredded cheddar evenly over the surface of the dough. Top with strips of bacon.
  4. Gently roll the dough lengthwise (the longest side) into a log shape, pressing the bacon in as you go to keep it in place.
  5. Slice log into 1 inch pieces and place flat side down onto the prepared baking sheet.
  6. Bake in 375 degree oven for 10-13 minutes, until tops are golden brown.
  7. Cool slightly on the baking sheet before serving.
