Recipe: Crescent Bacon Cheddar Pinwheels

This is one of those recipes that you can add to or modify to make the perfect savory treat for any occasion.  My normal plan of attack when finding a new recipe online is to read it, plus the first 20 reader reviews and see if any of the suggestions make sense (ie freezing the dough for 20 minutes to make it easier to slice - great idea!).  Click here for the original recipe from allrecipes.com.  I doubled this recipe since I was making it for a party.

1 (8oz) can of crescent dinner rolls (I used the reduced fat store brand)
2 tablespoons ranch dressing (used low-fat and probably more than 2T)
1/4 cup cooked real bacon pieces (used turkey bacon and a lot more - again from the reader reviews)
1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
1/4 cup chopped green onions (passed on these)

Heat oven to 350.  Unroll dough from can, forming into 2 long rectangles (12x4 - using 4 triangles).  Press perforations to seal.   Spread dressing over each rectangle to edges.  Sprinkle with bacon, cheddar, and onions (if using).   Starting with one short side of the rectangle - roll up the rectangle, pressing the edge to seal.  (reader review - wrap and freeze for 20+ minutes to make easier to slice) Cut each roll into 8 slices using a serrated knife.   Bake 12-17 minutes or until edges are deep golden brown.  Immediately remove from cookie sheet and serve warm.
