  • “This was very easy and quite yummy.I sauted the onions and parsley in the butter and then added the bacon.It spread more easily.I also had trouble with the dough wanting to pull apart, so I just worked quickly and left the rolls on their side.No need to flatten.”

  • “These are delicious!I must admit, though, that I made several modifications to the recipe as posted.Here are my changes:I used softened cream cheese in place of the butter, I used garlic, thyme & rosemary in place of the parsley, and I added mushrooms & shredded asiago cheese. I pulsed the mushrooms & onions in a food processor, then sauteed them in a little butter w/ the garlic, thyme & rosemary.After they had cooled, I combined them with the softened cream cheese, crumbled bacon, & asiago cheese. Instead of creating pinwheels, I simply spread the mixture generously on half of the crescent-roll-triangles, then topped with the remaining triangles.I baked at 375 until golden (about 12 min), let everything cool for a few minutes, then cut each large triangles into 3 smaller triangles, arranged, & served.There’s the pizzazz another reviewer was looking for!The resulting complexity of flavor stood up quite well to the crescent-roll dough.With my changes, the recipe made 24 instead of 32 servings.”

  • “YUM!! These are so quick and easy to make and soo tasty!!I used dried parsley and also sauteed my onion with the bacon as I hate raw onion.Next time I think I will add a little parmasean.”

  • “For some reason I have a hard time working with crescent rolls. But not this time. These are easy and delicious. Will definetly make again”

  • “Quick and easy to prepare……I just thought that they were lacking that certain ‘something’ if you know what I mean.They were very tasty and I would make them again…but perhaps with some more pizzazz.Now if only I knew what pizzazz that would be!”

  • “Fantastic! I just pulled these out of the oven for a party today and they’ll be lucky if they make it there!! It is so easy and they taste great. Thank you so much!”

  • “These really are awesome!Everyone wanted the recipe. You can even lower the fat count by using turkey bacon and light margarine or save time by using ready made bacon (just crumble it)!”

  • “These were so good!I made them for a Christmas appetizer and the first batch was gone before the second batch came out of the oven!I had several people ask me for the recipe so they could bring them to a New Years party!!”

  • “This was quite yummy. i didn’t have fresh parsley so i used dried.It still was delicious, but i’m sure it would be even better w/ fresh parsley. i also used the lower fat cresent rolls. Fantastic appetizer, Swimmin’.”

  • “This is good and easy. It’s a Pillsbury recipe and I recommend using the Pillsbury Crescent rolls – I’ve made this with others and it’s not the same. If you are doing this for a party make lots because they go fast.”

  • “These are very good. I have made this several times so far. Ive replaced cream cheese for butter once and that tasted great. I even made these a day ahead of time and popped them in the fridge and baked them the next day. Great recipe!”

  • “Hi Nurse Di, these are beyond fantastic! I sauteed the onions in a little of the butter and then I combined all together. They never made it out of the kitchen, so we had to start all over again!! This time we got smart – I tripled the recipe. I cook my bacon in the oven and it turned out nice and crispy, and crumbly. Sauteed onions with the fresh parsley, mixed all together with the soft butter – made for extra delicious pinwheels. Thank you so much for sharing such an easy, peasy, yummy recipe, Diane :=)”

  • “This was very good.I made this as part of our New Years Day appetizers.I found that not all them stayed together, but for the most part, most of them did.They were still yummy.I didn’t have cresent dough, but biscuit dough.I followed the recipe other than that.They were very good! Thank you!”

  • “I gave the 4 star rating only because i really liked the filling but found the dough took over.Will try again with a different pastry, maybe phyllo.Was very easy to put together.”

  • “We are going on a camping trip to a car show next weekend and I tried these out to take.I also used the refrigerated pizza crust because I had it on hand, and sauteed the onions with the bacon.On the tops I sprinkled parmesan cheese too.These are very tasty, and easy to make. I am going to double the batch and bring them on our trip!”

  • “These were great, I must confess though that I cheated and used a tube of pizza dough and just cut it into rounds and baked, but they were wonderful. Next time I`m going to use the crescent rolls.”
