Savory Parmesan Bites


Published: Friday, January 11, 2019

8 oz. pkg. cream cheese, softened

1 c. grated Parmesan cheese, divided

1 small red bell pepper, chopped

¼ c. fresh parsley, chopped

2 (8 oz.) cans refrigerated crescent dinner rolls

Stir together softened cream cheese, ¾ cup cheese, bell pepper and parsley.

Unroll crescent rolls, and separate each can into 4 rectangles, pressing perforations to seal. Spread 3 Tbsp. cream cheese mixture on each rectangle. Roll up, starting at 1 short side, jelly-roll fashion. Cut each roll into 4 equal pieces, using a serrated knife. Place on ungreased baking sheets. Sprinkle bites with remaining ¼ cup cheese.

Bake at 350° for 13-15 minutes or until golden brown. —32 bites.

Note: To make ahead, place unbaked bites on ungreased baking sheets, and freeze 1 hour or until frozen. Place bites in zip-top plastic freezer bags; store in freezer up to 1 month. Place frozen bites on ungreased baking sheets. Bake at 350° for 15-17 minutes or until golden brown.
