Bacon Cheddar Pinwheels #Pillsbury

This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of Albertsons.  The opinions and text are all mine.

The holidays are coming up. It seems as if they come earlier each year. I'm never quite prepared. This year is already different. I have a delicious recipe or two in my back pocket thanks to PillsburyTM products! They make it easy for me to come up with creative new recipes for my friends and family.

Seriously, what are the holidays without yummy recipes? I originally created a dip called Bacon Cheddar Dip and it is heavenly. I bring it to every get-together and am asked about it constantly. I decided to use a slightly different version as a filling for these pinwheels.

Recently, I stopped by my local Albertson's to buy some ingredients for this new family favorite recipe. I mean, bacon, cheddar cheese, crescent dough? I don't think you can go wrong with those flavors. They make amazing little appetizers. Here is the recipe, just for you!

Bacon Cheddar Pinwheels


8 oz sour cream

8 oz. cream cheese, softened

2 c. shredded cheddar cheese

2 green onions. chopped

3 oz real bacon bits

Dash of black pepper

1 can Pillsbury Crescent Dough Sheet


Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Mix the first six ingredients in a bowl.

Unroll the Crescent Dough Sheet. Flatten it out at the edges.

Scoop the filling onto the dough and flatten it out over the dough, making sure to leave a border along the edge with no filling. You want to make sure you have a good amount of filling but not too thick.

Then, you start to roll the dough up. If you roll it along the long edge then you will get many smaller pinwheels. I did it the other direction this time. Press the seam to seal it.

Then, with a very sharp knife cut about 1/2” slices.

Place them on a parchment lined baking sheet.

Bake for 15-18 minutes or until golden brown. Place on a wire rack to cool so they don’t get soggy.

These little beauties are hard to resist. Honestly, I had a hard time not taste testing them immediately, as did my husband and daughter. The pinwheels make a great party food as well as just a snack. Trust me on the last one. Imagine what you could do with Pillsbury too. There are so many possibilities!

What kind of recipes do you make for the holidays? Do they include Pillsbury products?
