I made these for Halloween and everyone loved them. One thing I would change. I put them in the freezer for about 15 minutes before cutting them. It made it so much easier to slice.

Ok, maybe it's me, but the instructions for rolling out the crescent rolls was disastrous. If you make two long rectangles out of 1 tube of dough, it's impossible to get 8 slices by rolling from the short side.

Loved this recipe. Instead of ranch dressing I used cream cheese with chive and onion. yummy. I took these to a birthday party and everyone asked for the recipe.

These were very yummy, my only problem was getting them off the foil. Probably won't use foil next time.

Easy to make and a great snack. Used herb and garlic spread rather than ranch dressing. Definitely use real bacon crumbles.

Easy, low cost, and oh-so yummy! I made these for a football party and they were gone in 60 seconds. Everyone raved over them. Definately put them in the freezer for about 15 minutes before you try to cut them or you will have a big mess.

This recipe was very easy to make and was so good! Like some of the others that left reviews I too added more bacon and it was fabulous!

Super good! Couldn't figure out how to roll it up, so it ended up being more of a pizza thing. I also added some shredded chicken, to make it more meal-like. Also, I used peppercorn ranch, and brown sugar bacon. so yummy! Was gone in a few minutes flat!
