Reynolds Kitchens® Tips

Reynolds Kitchens Tip

Lining your pan with Reynolds Kitchens® Pop-Up Parchment Sheets makes cleanup easy!


  • 4 slices bacon, finely chopped
  • 1 8-ounce package cream cheese, softened
  • 1/2 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1/4 cup thinly sliced green onions
  • 1 tablespoon milk
  • 2 8-ounce packages refrigerated crescent rolls, 16 rolls total
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tablespoon water
  • 1–2 teaspoons poppy seeds
  • Fresh chives (optional)
  • Reynolds Kitchens® Pop-Up Parchment Sheets


Step 1

Preheat oven to 375°F and line a large baking sheet with a Reynolds Kitchens® Pop-Up Parchment Sheet; set aside.

Step 2

In a skillet, cook bacon until crisp; drain.

Step 3

In a medium bowl, stir together bacon, cream cheese, Parmesan cheese, green onions, and milk until mixture is nearly smooth; set aside.

Step 4

Unroll and separate crescent rolls into 16 triangles. Spread each triangle with some of the cream cheese mixture. Roll up from the wide end of the triangle. Place on prepared baking sheet.

Step 5

In a small bowl, beat egg with water until combined. Brush crescents with the egg mixture; sprinkle with poppy seeds.

Step 6

Bake about 12 minutes or until puffed and light golden brown. If desired, garnish with chives. Serve warm.

To Freeze Baked Crescents:

Cool on wire racks. Freeze in a single layer until firm. Place in an air-tight container and freeze up to 3 months. To reheat, preheat oven to 350°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Arrange frozen baked crescents in a single layer on the prepared baking sheet. Bake for 8 minutes.
