Crescent Bacon & Cheese Tarts

These are the cutest little things, perfect for when you want a little breakfast on the go or when you're having guests. I purposely tried a few with bacon & a few without for some friends near & dear to me, you know who you are! They both are equally as delicious. I can definitely see changing these up to include sausage & cheddar cheese or some turkey sausage & pepper jack.



1 8oz can refrigerated crescent dinner rolls or 1 8oz can refrigerated flaky dough sheet
1/3 cup shredded Swiss cheese
1/4 cup chopped cooked bacon
About 2 tblsp chopped green onion (1 medium)
1 egg
3 tablespoons whipping cream **

Heat oven to 375°F. If using crescent rolls: Unroll dough into 1 large rectangle on work surface. Press into 12x9-inch rectangle, firmly pressing perforations to seal. If using dough sheet: Unroll dough on work surface. Press into 12x9-inch rectangle.

Cut dough into 12 squares. Gently press squares into 12 ungreased mini muffin cups, shaping edges to form rims 1/4 inch high. Spoon cheese evenly into dough-lined cups. Top each with bacon & onion. In small bowl, beat egg & whipping cream with wire whisk or fork until blended. Spoon slightly less than 1 tablespoon mixture into each cup.

Bake 15 to 20 minutes or until edges are golden brown & filling is set. Cool 5 minutes. Remove from muffin cups.

{Food for Thought}

Some mini muffin pans vary slightly in size so you may get a little more out of this than 12. I also made these healthier by substituting the heavy cream with milk, & would again. Refrigerate leftovers. To warm, wrap in paper towel and microwave for 8-10 seconds.

My girls would love these and I just happen to have a bag of bacon pieces in the fridge.

I'm glad to hear yours worked with milk instead of cream. I just can't bring myself to use cream.

The Nice One said...

How CUTE are those???? Yummmmie.
LMAO @ your Pale comment.
The guys on the new vampre show (diaries) don't appear to be as pale as others...have you checked that out?

starnes family said...

Made these last night and everyone enjoyed them. Used white onions instead of green b/c that is all I had on hand and it worked, but green will be better.

Oh, and I'm no good with small bacon quantity recipes. All that means is that I cook the entire package and eat the rest. Damn.

The Blonde Duck said...

Cheese, bacon and cute--three perfect ingrediants!
