I remember the first time I ate one of Dawn’s Cheesy Bacon Bites. We were celebrating Christmas and we always have a huge spread of food…but can you guess what I ate the most of?? Cheesy Bacon Bites! I love how the cream cheese melts in to the crescent dough. The bacon gives a lot of flavor (duh!) and adds some crisp to this bite sized appetizer. Aaaand since it is bite sized, you can totally eat more than just 1!

    Cheesy Bacon Bites
    Can’t wait to make them,but…
    What size of cream cheese packages?
    How thick to slice?
    What size jelly-roll pan?
    Could find out by trial & error,but why not show it in the recipe?

      Hi Pete! I use the 8 oz block of cream cheese, thickness should about 1/4 inch (I use the width of my finger), and you can use any size of jelly roll pan. Just use whatever works. I don’t take step by step photos because the I don’t get a lot of natural light in my kitchen, so the photos don’t do the food justice. Hope that helps!

    My kids beg me for something kinda similar to this with sausage and pizza dough. Love the crescent roll and cream cheese combo. Also bacon.
