One of our family's all-time favorite recipes is our super-easy 3-ingredient crescent sausage bites.  Incidentally, these sausage bites also happen to be one of the all-time most popular recipes on The Kitchen is My Playground.  With creamy sausage baked between two layers of tasty crescent rolls, what's not to love?

We whip up crescent sausage bites for pretty much every party we have, bring them to potlucks, and eat them accompanied by a fruit salad for breakfast, lunch, AND dinner.  It seems to us, there's never a wrong time to enjoy them.

Given our love for crescent sausage bites and their popularity here on the blog, we're always looking to come up with new crescent bite flavors.  While admittedly, none of our creations have surpassed the flavor of the original sausage bites, they're definitely tasty in their own right! - Variations like Spinach Dip Crescent Bites.  And Turkey Crescent Bites -- that are great for enjoying leftover turkey.

Make these easy little bites for parties, bring them to potlucks, or pair them with fruit for an easy breakfast, lunch, OR dinner - There's never a wrong time to enjoy them!

And now?  Bacon Crescent Bites!

Bacon Crescent Bites have a tasty creamy filling of cream cheese, crumbled bacon, Parmesan, and green onions that's, just like their original sausage counterparts, baked up between two layers of crescent rolls.

Once baked, a pizza cutter makes quick work of cutting the delicious result into tasty little finger-food bites - Just perfect for picking up and popping in your mouth to enjoy.

And a bonus to their great taste?  Bacon Crescent Bits are super easy to make.

To whip up a batch of these bites, start by combining softened cream cheese, crumbled cooked bacon, Parmesan cheese, chopped cream onions, and a little smidge of milk in mixing bowl.

Stir everything together until it's really well combined.

Unroll one package of crescent rolls and place it on a baking sheet. Then with your fingers, gently press the seams together to seal them up.

Spoon the bacon-cream cheese mixture onto the crescent dough:

And then spread the bacon-cream cheese mixture evenly over the crescent roll dough, leaving about a 1/2-inch border along the edges.

Unroll the remaining package of crescent rolls and place the dough over the top of the bacon mixture. Gently press the edges together to seal the mixture inside.  You don't need to press real firmly or get every inch of the edges adhered together - just get the edges tacked down a bit.  

Then again, use your fingers to gently press any seams together on the top of the dough.

Once baked, a pizza cutter makes quick work of cutting the delicious result into tasty little finger-food bites.
Pop the baking sheet in the oven and bake everything up for about 20 minutes or so until the crescent roll dough is golden brown.

Once out of the oven, let the bites stand for about 5 minutes before cutting.  Then cut the Bacon Crescent Bites into pieces.  And let me just tell you, a pizza cutter makes really quick and easy work of the cutting.

For parties, we cut the bites into small squares.  If we're having the bites for breakfast, lunch, or dinner, we cut them into larger rectangular pieces.  Just cut to the size that fits what you're serving them for.

  1. Can these be served room temp ? I ask since you mentioned to take to potlucks. Do these need to be refrigerated ?
    Thanks so much. Love my emails from you

    1. Hi, Dottie! Yes, these can be served at room temperature. For "long-term" storage, the bacon crescent bites should be refrigerated, but they're fine to sit out for a little while ... like at a party of potluck. And thank you for being a reader (and e-mail subscriber) of The Kitchen is My Playground!

  2. I was wondering; instead of using the crescent tubes , using tortilla's, spreading the mixture onto flour tortilla's and make into tortilla roll-ups

    1. Sure, the filling would be very tasty in a tortilla roll-up. What a fun idea!
