Foodie Tips ~
♥ When cheese heard it wasn’t invited to the roll-up party it was pretty sad. :*( Next time we’ll toss-in a little shredded Trader Joe’s 4-Cheese blend (a tasty mix we lovingly call stinky cheese) to help liven the roll-up party.
♥ I used to be on a black peppered bacon kick but for this I used Applewood smoked bacon.
♥ If your bacon isn’t super crunchy it may be hard to crumble. I used kitchen sheers to help me cut things into shape.
♥ Dividing 6 pieces of crumbled bacon into 8 equal portions can seem tricky. I spread the bacon crumbles on a round plate, divided them into half, then I halved the halves again and then each half I halved again. The result? A lot of halving plus 8 mouth-watering piles of bacon-y deliciousness that were pretty close in size. Shazam!

Yes! Clicking the “bacon” link will load-up all the recipes here at Betty’s Cook Nook that contain bacon … including my all-time favorite California Potato Salad. The magic of bacon!
1 package (8 rolls) | pillsbury brand crescent rolls
a few dashes | onion salt
6 pieces | bacon, cooked and crumbled
ii. what to do
1. Cook 6 slices of the bacon until they are crisp. Drain, pat dry (or rest between paper towels) then crumble.
2. Preheat oven to 375°F.
3. Separate crescent rolls from the package. Sprinkle each with a little onion salt.
5. Roll-up the dough starting at the wide end. Place on a baking sheet, point side down. Continue until you’re done with all 8 roll-ups.
6. Bake in your oven for 10-15 minutes (do not overcook, like I did. My temperamental gas oven and I are on shaky ground with one another.)
Yields 8 bacon roll-ups and up to 8 happy people!
