Now onto the pinwheels. I received this recipe in an email from Pillsbury, last week. I had originally bought my crescent rolls to make a cream cheese wreath, for breakfast on Christmas day, but the kids aren't exactly crazy about it. So, I decided to make these instead, knowing I also had 2 grown men to satisfy.

Somehow cheese and bacon makes the world better, for men, LOL.

I must say that these were darn tasty. I did change most of them up though, since Ranch isn't a popular flavor with Hubby and my nephew. So I subbed in some Caesar dressing and a sprinkle of Parmesan, before adding the cheese and bacon. Oh-so-good!!! I did make half a can of crescents with the Ranch, just to see how it tasted. Though it wasn't bad, it wasn't as good as the Caesar pinwheels. Just goes to show how versatile this recipe really is.
