Bacon-Cheese Quiche-esque Bites

Posted by fpudude10 on Dec 18, 2009

So, I work in a legitimate office at FPU. We all enjoy food over here, and it isn't unusual for goodies to be present in the office. The staff treat us students so well and even had a student appreciation week that was chock-full of tasty treats and goodies. So as a thank you to the office and as a Christmas gift to them, I wanted to bring in some goodies before we all left for Christmas. I found the original recipe on the Pillsbury website, but adapted it a bit -- the biggest part was doubling the bacon. :D

Ingredients

1 8oz can refrigerated crescent dinner rolls

1/3 cup shredded Swiss cheese

1/2 cup chopped, cooked bacon

1 tablespoon chopped green onion

1 large egg

3 tablespoons whipping cream

Instructions

  1. Heat oven to 350F
  2. Unroll crescent dough onto a cookie sheet. Firmly press the perforations together to make one large 12"x9" rectangle.
  3. Cut the dough into 12 squares. I used a pizza cutter - it worked great. Then gently press each of the squares into the unlined and ungreased mini-muffin cups, shaping edges to form rims 1/4 inch high.
  4. Next, evenly divide the cheese among all of the dough-lined cups. Then do the same with the bacon, and then green onion.
  5. In a small bowl, beat the whipping cream and egg together until blended.
  6. Slowly spoon just under 1 tablespoon of mixture into each cup. *I added it 1/2 tablespoon at a time, because the cups were so full. Be patient on this part. Allow the egg mixture to seep down to the bottom of the cups, otherwise it will overflow and make a mess.
  7. Finally bake 15-20 minutes or until edges are golden brown and the filling is set. Cool 5 minutes. Remove from muffin cups.
