Reviews for Bacon Cream Cheese Pinwheels
"So good and SO easy to make. I roasted a turkey on Superbowl weekend and had these for an appetizer. The kitchen was so crowded but I still made them!"
"Delicious! Instead of the regular cream cheese, milk and chopped onion - I bought a tub of onion and chive flavor soft cream cheese. It spread on easily and was delicious with the bacon. As mentioned in TOH magazine, I dipped each one in shredded Parmesan cheese before baking. I will definitely make these again."
"So easy, so good, and so versatile. I played around with the ingredients, as did some other reviewers, and I lightly brushed the tops with olive oil, then sprinkled with Parm and garlic salt before baking. That was a real winner."
"These were good, easy , and versatile. I've made them three times and used different fillings each time - sausage and green chile, chopped olives and sausage, and sharp cheddar and parmesan."
"These are good and super easy to make. You can used flavored cream cheese and any meats you like. The bacon cream cheese with bacon pieces was a hit this year!"
"These were good. I made them for a Christmas party and the kids loved them. I made them ahead of time and then sliced and baked when I needed them."
