Mushroom Bacon Pinwheels

We have been serving delicious Mushroom Bacon Pinwheels at several of our Afternoon Tea events, and they have received rave reviews, so I thought I'd share the recipe with you. Not only are they yummy, but they are fast and easy to prepare. You can make them a few hours before serving, and then bake them just before serving. Enjoy!

Mushroom Bacon Pinwheels
3 Tbsp. bacon bits
6 oz. cream cheese, softened
1/2 c. mayonnaise
1 can (4 oz.) mushroom stems and pieces, well drained
1/2 tsp. garlic powder
1 8 oz. tube refrigerated crescent rolls

Blend cream cheese, mayonnaise, bacon bits, mushroom pieces and garlic powder until well mixed. Separate crescent dough into four rectangles; seal perforations. Divide cream cheese mixture evenly between all 4 rectangles and spread to within 1/4 in. of edges. Roll up jelly-roll style, starting with the short side. Cut each into 5 or 6 pieces. Place slices cut side down on parchment lined baking sheet. Bake at 375 degrees for 12 minutes, until golden brown. Serve warm. Yield: 20 - 24 pinwheels.

Mmm! Much as I love bacon and mushrooms, this is definitely going on my next tea party menu! I always have wayyyy more ideas for sweets than savories, so bless you for sharing this!

Great recipe. I was looking for something to add to my teas in December. This one just may fit the missing piece. Thanks!

I'm a (mostly) vegetarian these days, and wow do I miss BACON! These sound just awesome.
