Bacon Cheddar Pinwheels

My sweet, sweet Wonkie turned 3 this past week.

Isn't it crazy? I remember the day he was born. I know everyone says that, but...seriously. He's an actual person now. A person who has birthday parties and who actually tells me what he wants for his birthday. No more guessing. What Wonkie wants, Wonkie gets.

Wonkie wanted a plane. And not just any plane. A fast one. He wanted a fast one. This kid has a crazy imagination. He thinks a monster named Biscuit lives in between my legs (the knee-area, folks). He searches for it every single time I visit, and even bids Biscuit good night. He's so polite. Even to the imaginary monsters. This monster, Biscuit, has, however, left me a feeling a little bit uneasy.

When Stefanie, my lovely super-woman sister-in-law, informed us that they were throwing a birthday party with all of  friends, I had to contribute. I can't show up to a family function and not bring a dish of something. Especially when it's a bunch of 3-year-olds. They're the true critics-they'll tell you what they really think about the food.

So I chickened out. So what? I felt like succeeding. These are easy. And tasty. And bacony. And cheesy. And I just want to eat 'em all up.

Kinda' like my little Wonkie.


  • 1 8oz can of Pillsbury refrigerated crescent dinner rolls
  • 2 tablespoon Ranch Dressing
  • 6 slices of bacon, crisply cooked, crumbled

  • 1/2 cup finely shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1/2 cup finely shredded Italian blend cheese 
  • 1 tablespoon dried chives
  • Garlic salt

Heat oven to 350°F.

Spray pan so the rolls won't stick. Because they will.

Unroll dough; separate into 2 long rectangles.

Pinch together any non-sealed areas of the dough. And ignore my dry, red, wintery hands. Tim said that I definitely don't have "The Price Is Right" hands. Agreed.

Each can will make 2 of these dough-rectangle things.

Sprinkle generously with garlic salt. Because in my opinion, everything needs more salt and garlic. Except chocolate.

Spread dressing over each rectangular crescent rolls all the way to the edges. 

Sprinkle each with bacon, cheeses and chives.

 Starting at one end, roll up the dough tightly and pinch dough at the end to keep sealed.

Cut each roll into 7-8 pieces.

Spread out evenly and bake 12-17 minutes.

They just...fall part. They're buttery and flaky, yet they've got a crunch from the bacon. Flawless.

Love and Wonkie,
