Savory Parmesan Bites

Has anyone ever noticed the Meijer 'mealbox' or the recipe cards in the Meijer stores? I've glanced at them before, but never paid too much attention to them. I'm not fond of the Meijer website, and the cards never really catch my attention. This one did, though. We were grocery shopping, and I saw this. I thought it would be worth a try--we had everything but the crescents, and the pepper was probably going to go to waste if I didn't use it here. So, we tried it!
Unfortunately, I was not very fond of these. Nate enjoyed them, but most of them went to waste. I think part of it was that crescents are going lower and lower on the list of my favorite 'bread' type things... but I can't properly explain why. Oh well! I may try this recipe with something else bread-like... and maybe do a small substitution for the cream cheese? We'll see!

Savory Parmesan Bites

4 Ounce cream cheese, softened
1/2 Cup grated parmesan
4 Ounce refrigerated crescent rolls
1/2 red bell pepper, chopped

Heat oven to 350.
Beat cream cheese and 1/3 cup parmesan with mixer until well blended.
Separate dough into 4 rectangles; seal seams. Spread with cream cheese mixture; top with peppers and parsley. Fold each rectangle lengthwise into thirds to enclose filling; cut into 4 squares. Place seam side down, on baking sheet; top with remaining parmesan.
Bake 13-15 minutes or until golden brown.

  1. Those look awesome! Perfect for a party. :)

  2. I think they could be, but I definitely want to try it a different way first! That undeniable crescent flavor is a bit much for me. :)
