These "Mini Jalapeno Popper Crescents" are a yummy little appetizer you can put together with a few ingredients you probably usually have on hand. These can also be made up earlier in the day and refrigerated on a cookie sheet until ready to bake so they are perfect for parties. These would be so good for your Super Bowl party! Here is what you need:
1 (8 oz,) can refrigerated crescent rolls
1 (8 oz.) pkg. cream cheese, softened to room temperature
1/3 cup pickled jalapeno rings, diced
1/4 tsp. garlic powder
5 strips of bacon, cooked crisp and crumbled
Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
Separate the crescent rolls into the precut triangles then cut each triangle in half lengthwise.
I a bowl mix the cream cheese, diced jalapenos, and garlic powder. Place the dough on a sheet pan covered with nonstick foil or you could use parchment paper. Spoon about a Tablespoon of the cream cheese mixture on the widest part of the dough. Sprinkle each one with some of the crumbled bacon. Sort of press the bacon into the cream cheese.
Roll up like you would a crescent roll. Bake in a 375 degree oven on the center rack for 13 -15 minutes or just until golden brown! This makes 16 appetizers. For bigger parties, you can easily double the recipe!
These are so tasty, hot right out of the oven! Make plenty because they will go fast!
