Well, I’m starting to get excited for the holiday season, though slightly unprepared. Still, I’m already beginning to think about what food to serve for the upcoming holidays. One thing I’ve been pondering is appetizers options to bring to parties and events and these Bacon Jalapeno Ranch Crescents are a great option.
When I’m making food to bring places, I always focus on finding options that are as easy as they are delicious. And that’s one of the things I love about this recipe, it’s super easy to make! Not to mention the zesty ranch, spicy jalapeno and smoky bacon flavors are such a delicious combination in the pillowy-soft crescent roll dough.
These are super simple to assemble before you need them and keep well in the refrigerator for a few days. They taste great warm or cold. If you don’t like spicy foods, you can always substitute sweet peppers (or even scallions) for the peppers. I removed the jalapeno seeds which kept the kick without being overwhelmingly spicy.
Bacon Jalapeno Ranch Crescent Rolls
Source: The Life Jolie
- 4 oz. of cream cheese, softened (half of a standard package)
- 1 Tbsp. of ranch dressing seasoning
- One can of crescent roll dough
- 2 jalapenos, chopped fine (if you want it to be a bit less spicy, remove the seeds)
- 4 slices of crumbled bacon
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
Mix the ranch seasoning with your cream cheese until combined.
Spoon a small spoonful of the cream cheese mixture onto your the wider part of your crescent roll dough pieces and top with some jalapenos and bacon crumbles.
Roll the wider part of the dough into the pointed part as you do when you’re making crescent rolls on their own (so that the cheese, jalapenos and bacon are the “filling” and place them onto your baking sheet.
Baker for 10-12 minutes or until golden brown. Serve right away or refrigerate for up to a few days. Enjoy!
