This was very easy and quite yummy. I sauted the onions and parsley in the butter and then added the bacon. It spread more easily. I also had trouble with the dough wanting to pull apart, so I just worked quickly and left the rolls on their side. No need to flatten.

These are delicious! I must admit, though, that I made several modifications to the recipe as posted. Here are my changes: I used softened cream cheese in place of the butter, I used garlic, thyme & rosemary in place of the parsley, and I added mushrooms & shredded asiago cheese. I pulsed the mushrooms & onions in a food processor, then sauteed them in a little butter w/ the garlic, thyme & rosemary. After they had cooled, I combined them with the softened cream cheese, crumbled bacon, & asiago cheese. Instead of creating pinwheels, I simply spread the mixture generously on half of the crescent-roll-triangles, then topped with the remaining triangles. I baked at 375 until golden (about 12 min), let everything cool for a few minutes, then cut each large triangles into 3 smaller triangles, arranged, & served. There's the pizzazz another reviewer was looking for! The resulting complexity of flavor stood up quite well to the crescent-roll dough. With my changes, the recipe made 24 instead of 32 servings.

YUM!! These are so quick and easy to make and soo tasty!! I used dried parsley and also sauteed my onion with the bacon as I hate raw onion. Next time I think I will add a little parmasean.
