Yes – I said rockstar and I meant it! I must tell you right up front that I started out trying to make this recipe http://www.rhodesbread.com/blog/blog/bacon-cheese-crescents from Stephanie of Plain Chicken Blog fame, found here: http://www.plainchicken.com/. But when I got home this evening I found that I didn’t have several of the ingredients Stephanie used like Rhodes frozen dough, dry ranch dressing mix, and Oscar Meyer real bacon bits. So…….I decided to fake it. For me, this often doesn’t work. Usually I end up throwing it away because my mind just doesn’t work that way. I can create all kinds of things, but recipes – not so much.
I changed this recipe a lot but the original idea is from Stephanie at Plain Chicken.
Rockstar Crescent Rolls
These ingredients are needed:
Bacon cut up and cooked crisp
1/3 Cup Shredded cheese
1 tube Crescent Rolls
Fry up the bacon:
Put on paper towel to drain.
While bacon is frying, put these ingredients into a bowl:
¼ Cup Mayo
1/8 Cup Minced onion
1/8 Cup Minced jarred sweet red peppers
3 dashes hot sauce
Sprinkling of garlic powder
Put bacon, cheese, and mayo mix in a bowl and fold.
Roll out the crescent rolls and place a bit on each roll.
Roll ’em up!
Bake as directions indicate on tube.
These are so tasty we ate all of them for dinner and had to put up the meatloaf and mashed potatoes I made!

Haha I love their name my friend! Rockstar rolls have to have their cheese and bacon 😉

Yep – I love bacon and cheese! But you know, all those cupcakes and cookies with bacon in or on them? Never tasted one that I cared for – go figure.
These sound so good.
They are!! I’m making some more right now this early in the morning for my mom and her domino posse’ tonight!
Oh my!!! My kiddos are going to go crazy for these. Thanks for another terrific recipe linked to the Weekend Potluck. Don’t you love it when you end up throwing stuff together and it works!
Well, I really love it because honestly – that’s never happened before! Usually, it goes in the trash! 🙂
These look delicious!!!!
I agree… you just need practice/to read some articles about food photographing. I would kill for a camera like yours 😀 Well… maybe not kill, but you know what I mean!
Yes, I know what you mean…… My husband bought it for me when I decided I wanted to do a blog. You know, I never thought about reading articles on food photography! Sometimes it’s the most obvious thing I don’t think of. Thanks honey, I really appreciate that. If you have any to recommend, I would love to read them!
Here are two to start with:
I think you just have to play around with angles and such. For example, the photo of all the crescents on the foil is good, but it might be even better if you took it from the corner, focused on the closest roll. That’s how I would’ve done it 😉 I like taking ‘artsy’ photos, though.
Another thing to keep in mind is that most really amazing photographs have some sort of editing done to them… lightroom/photoshop/etc.
Thank you so much Pam! I really appreciate it and I will read these first thing tomorrow.
You’re welcome 😀
Congrats, Kelli! Your recipe had the MOST CLICKS last week at Weekend Potluck! Come grab an “I was Featured” button!
P.S. My top 2 favorite photography tips, from someone who is still learning. 🙂 Turn your camera to the no flash setting and set your plate of food near the window! Good luck!
Are you serious?? two weeks in a row?? I don’t even know what to say………Thank you. Also, thanks for photography tips….The Weekend Potluck Team all take such beautiful pictures and I honestly try so hard to mimic you all and it ends up looking like my little schnauzer took them! 🙂
These look fantastic! I can’t wait to try your version
Thanks Stephanie – gosh, I meant to post on your blog and let you know I had gotten the idea from you but I was so blown away by all the views, I totally forgot! I’m so sorry. BTW, my husband (Mr. Picky-eater) thinks you are the best cook because I have made so many of your posts and I don’t generally mess them up!

I use to have an SLR (film) however I realized the little point and shoots work just as well. I have a little Canon point and shoot that I think takes great pics!
Hey Susan! I’m working on my camera skills but I’m not sure if I will EVER be able to take good pictures – but I keep trying! 🙂
These really look good! =)
I love using crescent rolls like this.
Pinned to my Dinner board.
Thank you Melissa! I’m very excited to begin cooking in the oven again – and watching football – and Walking Dead. All good reasons to make these!

Just looking at the ingredients I would say that it’s impossible for this not to be yummy. My eyes and mouth thank you. My hips wish you would shut up. 🙂
Holy cow Anita! You are going to have to get out of my head! I was just now thinking I would go home tonight and remake these so I could get better pictures. Check my home email – Lo and Behold there you are looking at the ingredients! it’s like we are the Wonder Twins only we would be the Wonder Trips because we couldn’t do without Joan!
