Onion-Bacon Crescent Bites


I am posting the recipe for a wonderful appetizer we had on New Years Eve 2009.  They are completely addictive!!
Onion-Bacon Crescent Bites
3 slices bacon, cut into pieces
1/2 cup chopped onion
1 package (3 oz) cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
1 tablespoon fines chopped fresh parsley
1/2 teaspoon paprika
1/4 teaspoon caraway seed, crushed
1 can (8 oz) Pillsbury refrigerated crescent dinner rolls.
Heat oven to 375 degrees Farenheit.  Spray cookie sheet with cooking spray.  In a 6" skillet, cook bacon over medium heat 3 minutes.  Add onion; cook 3 to 5 minutes or until tender.  Remove the heat.  Drain if necessary.
In small bowl, stir cream cheese until smooth.  Add bacon mixture, Cheddar cheese, parsley, paprika and caraway seed; mix well.  Set aside.
Unroll dough; separate into 4 rectangles.  Press perforations to seal.  Spoon 1/4 of bacon mixture onto each rectangle; spread to within 1/2" from 1 long side.  Roll up each rectangle, staring with topped long side and rolling to untopped side.  Press edge to seal.  With serrated knife, cut each roll into 8 slices.  Place cut side down on cookie sheet.  Bake 15 to 20 minutes or until golden brown.  Serve warm.
Thanks to Pillsbury.com for the recipe.
