With all the holiday entertaining that we’ll be doing in the weeks ahead, the last thing we need is some kind of complicated recipe. That’s where this easy-as-can-be recipe come in. You see, by starting off with a few supermarket shortcuts from the refrigerated and freezer aisle, we can have fresh-baked treats on the table in minutes. And are these tasty!

What You'll Need

  • 1 egg
  • 1 tablespoon water
  • 4 ounces cream cheese, softened
  • 3/4 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 3/4 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 3 tablespoons diced roasted red pepper, drained well
  • 3/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 sheet refrigerated puff pastry
  • 1/3 cup real bacon bits
  • 1/4 cup thinly sliced scallions

What to Do

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Coat 2 baking sheets with cooking spray.
  2. In a small bowl whisk egg and water; set aside. In a medium bowl, combine cream cheese, cheddar and mozzarella cheeses, roasted peppers, and garlic powder; mix well.
  3. Unfold pastry sheet and place lengthwise on a flat surface. Brush edges with egg mixture. Spread cheese mixture evenly over puff pastry. Sprinkle bacon and scallions evenly over cheese mixture. Tightly roll up pastry jelly roll-style. Cut into 16 (1/2-inch) slices and lay flat on baking sheets. Brush with remaining egg mixture on sides and tops.
  4. Bake for 18 to 22 minutes or until golden brown. Serve warm.
