Cheesey Bacon Bites

1 can refrigerated crescent rolls
1 8oz container cream cheese
1 3oz jar Bacon Pieces (NOT hard bacon bits)
1 medium onion, finely chopped
garlic salt to taste

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

Allow cream cheese to soften to room temperature.

In a medium bowl mix cream cheese, bacon pieces, and onion. Toss in a healthy dash (1/4 teaspoon, roughly) of garlic salt. Mix well, set aside.

Open crescent rolls carefully. Unroll and cut down main center seam. You'll have two even rectangles.

Using a rolling pin or clean soda can, roll out first rectangle until it is about an 1/8th of an inch thick.

Spoon half of cream cheese mixture onto rectangle, smooth out. Starting with one long end, roll up jelly-roll style.

Repeat last two steps with other rectangle.

Using a very sharp knife, slice each roll into 1/2 inch sections (pinwheels).

Place pinwheels on a greased cookie sheet and bake for 20 minutes, or until golden brown.
