Savory Parmesan Bites

Yield Makes 32 pieces
Prep: 20 min., Bake: 15 min.

Ingredients

  • 1 (8-ounce) package cream cheese, softened
  • 1 cup grated Parmesan cheese, divided
  • 1 small red bell pepper, chopped
  • 1/4 cup fresh parsley, chopped
  • 2 (8-ounce) cans refrigerated crescent dinner rolls

How to Make It

  1. Stir together softened cream cheese, 3/4 cup cheese, bell pepper, and parsley.

  2. Unroll crescent rolls, and separate each can into 4 rectangles, pressing perforations to seal. Spread 3 tablespoons 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.

  3. Bake at 350° for 13 to 15 minutes or until golden brown.

  4. 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 to 17 minutes or until golden brown.
