Crescent Roll Christmas Wreath Appetizer

This is a great appetizer for around the holidays. The red and green ingredients make it a perfect appetizer for the Christmas season! I am not ashamed to say  I got this recipe from the Betty Crocker website. It’s delicious, easy to make and very festive!

Crescent Roll Wreath Ingredients:

6 slices bacon
1/2 cup chive-and-onion cream cheese spread (from 8-oz container)
2 cans (8 oz each) Pillsbury™ refrigerated crescent dinner rolls
2 cups Green Giant Select™ frozen broccoli florets (from 14-oz bag), thawed, finely chopped and patted dry with paper towel
1/3 cup diced red bell pepper
1 egg, beaten
1 teaspoon sesame seed
Fresh rosemary, if desired

Crescent Roll Wreath Method:
Heat oven to 375°F. Cook bacon as desired until crisp. Drain on paper towel; crumble bacon and set aside.

Unroll both cans of dough; separate into 16 triangles. On ungreased large cookie sheet, arrange triangles with shortest sides toward center, overlapping in wreath shape and leaving 4-inch round circle open in center (see diagram). Crescent dough points may overlap edge of cookie sheet. Press overlapping dough to flatten.

Spread cream cheese spread on dough to within 1 inch of points.
