Goodbye 2009! Hello 2010 and a Giveaway!

I am not quite done blogging all of my holiday treats, but I wanted to get this up today. Last night we went to a New Years Eve party. I offered to bring something to the party. I decided to use the coupons for free Pillsbury crescents that they went me and let my blog readers decide what I should take!

The winner of the poll was Crescent Bacon-Cheese Tartlets.

I made 2 different versions and made some changes. I will link to the original recipe so you can have it. Below is my take on it.

Bacon and cheddar version:
1 can of Pillsbury crescent seamless dough sheet
Shredded sharp cheddar cheese
chopped green onion
1 egg
3 tbsp whipping cream

Mushroom and garlic version:
1 can Pillsbury crescent seamless dough sheet
1/4 tsp minced garlic
1 tbsp butter
Mushrooms (sorry I didn't measure - it was about 2 palm fulls)
Shredded sharp cheddar cheese
chopped green onion
1 egg
3 tbsp whipping cream

Saute the mushroom, garlic and butter or fry your bacon.

Unroll your dough and cut into 12 pieces.

Place 1 in each greased mini muffin cup

Put cheese in the cup

Top with onion, bacon or mushroom mixture.


Mix whipping cream and egg with a whisk and then put about 1tbsp of mixture on each tartlet

Bake at 375 for about 15 mins.

I didn't get a chance to taste before we went, so I was a little nervous to serve something I haven't tasted. They were served at room temp, because we had to travel to DC and they cooled on the ride. Well - within 1 min of the foil being off, half the mushroom was gone. People were freaking out about them. One guy had 4! The bacon went a little slower, but not because they weren't as good, but more because of people's diet preferences at the party. These didn't last long, next time I make them for a party, I will probably make double.
This recipe was really easy to make and didn't take much time at all. I highly recommend it!

How would you like to get 2 coupons for free crescents and 3 little serving platters?

Well, Pillsbury sent them to me, and also said I could offer 1 reader their own. So - leave a comment with your favorite Pillsbury recipe, or one you would like to try from their website by Sat Jan 9 and Sunday Jan 10 I will use and pick a winner! You can submit 1 recipe a day for more chances to win!

  1. Pizza Pinwheels

    2 cans of crescent rolls

    1 pkg of pepperoni slices

    1 large bag of shredded mozzarella (equal to 4 cups)

    2 egg yolks

    This recipe is a double batch. Trust me, you always want to make a double batch! I am not exaggerating. Heat oven to 375 degrees. Roll out crescent rolls, but pinch together the diagonal lines to create rectangles. In a food processor (if you don’t have one you can chop up as small as you can) chop the pepperoni in very small pieces. In a large mixing bowl combine the cheese, egg yolks, and pepperoni.

    Spread the mixture on the crescent rolls. Roll them up starting from the short end. After you roll them up, slice them and place them on a baking sheet. Bake for 8 minutes.


Thanks for leaving me some love! You will see your comment once it is approved!
