Bacon and Cheddar Wraps

Last week I was exploring ideas for appetizers for the upcoming Thanksgiving celebration. As many of you know, Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday, not because I get the opportunity to make several dishes, but also because it is a great day to hang out with family and friends.

As we went back and forth on who was going to host Thanksgiving, as well as cook, it came down to my in-laws hosting, our cousins to bring the appetizers, and for me to make the rest. But as I was exploring the idea of making appetizers, I came up with a bacon and cheddar wrapped crescent loaf, which I admit, was to die for.

While I was exploring the idea, I realized that I had a tube of my son’s favorite crescents in the refrigerator, and that sparked my idea of stuffing with 4 year old aged, sharp Wisconsin cheddar cheese, some Nueske’s apple smoked bacon, and peppadew peppers. Super simple, and super delicious, these make for a really great appetizer.


  • 1 can of crescent rolls, edges sealed
  • 8 slices of great smoked bacon, cooked and crumbled
  • 1 cup of sharp cheddar cheese, grated
  • 4 peppadew peppers, chopped (optional)
  • cooking spray

If you have never heard of peppadew peppers, they are basically a sweet pepper, with just a touch of heat, and in my opinion, goes great with this appetizer.

Begin by spraying cooking spray on a baking sheet, and preheating your oven to 375 degrees. Lay out the crescent rolls onto the baking sheet, and instead of rolling them up like you would normally do, piece it back together, sealing all of the edges. Lay the cheese, bacon, and peppadew peppers on the top of the dough, fold over like a loaf, making sure you completely seal all of the dough.

Place in the oven and bake for about 20 minutes. Remove, from the oven, can carefully flip it over, baking another 5-10 minutes, or until the entire loaf is a golden brown.  Remove from the oven, set onto a cooling rack, and let rest for about 5 minutes before slicing into it.

Slice into about a two inch slice, and serve. Great flavors make for a really friendly, and tasty appetizer. Enjoy.

Thank you for visiting my website. Truly, I do appreciate it. My free time and stress reliever is cooking for my family, friends, and everyone in between. The recipes you find on this site are those that I have either created, been part of, or those that I simply enjoy and have made my own in some shape, form, or other. My focus has always been on comfort food, because at the end of a long work day, you want something comforting. I currently am the father of three children, and married to a wonderful wife of thirteen years. There is nothing fancy with these recipes, just simple, and I will admit, not so simple ingredients, and a simple kitchen corner I can call my own. I learned early on that cooking and bringing family together was very important. After all, this notion of being together at dinner time was instilled early on by my parents. There are many memories of being in the kitchen with my parents, watching them cook, or preparing meals, or those home cooked smells while waiting for dinner. My parents who worked full-time, always had home cooked meals during the week, with the exception of Friday nights where we would enjoy a Wisconsin fish fry, and often on late afternoons on Sunday, where we would order Ann's pizza. I tend to cook by making things up. As a home cook, I think you have to take chances, and add or subtract ingredients that make up a dish, and make them your own. Remember to taste, and taste often. If a dish has potential, try it again, and make it your own. You should also note that I do not count calories, or break down recipes into grams of anything. To me, that's a bit boring. My philosophy is that if the food is good, eat it, and eat it in moderation. Life is just too short not to enjoy good food.
