  1. Heat oven to 375 degrees F. Cook bacon as desired until crisp. Drain on paper towel; crumble bacon and set aside.
  2. Unroll both cans of dough; separate into 16 triangles. On ungreased large cookie sheet, arrange triangles with shortest sides toward center, overlapping in wreath shape and leaving 4-inch round circle open in center (see diagram). Crescent dough points may overlap edge of cookie sheet. Press overlapping dough to flatten.
  3. Spread cream cheese spread on dough to within 1 inch of points. In small bowl, mix crumbled bacon, broccoli and bell pepper; spoon onto widest part of dough. Pull end points of triangles over broccoli mixture and tuck under dough to form ring (filling will be visible). Carefully brush dough with beaten egg; sprinkle with sesame seed.
  4. Bake 25 to 30 minutes or until deep golden brown. Cool 5 minutes. With broad spatula, carefully loosen wreath from cookie sheet; slide onto serving platter. Garnish with fresh rosemary. Serve warm. Store in refrigerator.

  • Keep the crescent dough refrigerated until you are ready to work with it. Chilled dough is much easier to work with than dough warmed to room temperature.

I made this and it was a big hit! I altered the recipe slightly. I used fresh broccoli, and added sliced green onions with the red bell peppers. After pouring off the bacon drippings, I sauteed veggies in same pan. Then, instead of spreading cream cheese on croissant dough (that idea seemed difficult), I stirred the crisp tender veggies with the cream cheese. Finally, before serving I placed a plate of strawberries in center of wreath. Christmas-y colors, indeed!

sounds good and easy--going to give it a try for the holiday season--might add a dip in the middle.

This was a big hit for my Christmas party. People loved the creamy taste with the croissant saltiness. I did alter the recipe a little for taste / calorie content. I did light herb & garlic cream cheese, frozen spinach instead of broccoli, and didn't add the bacon or sesame seeds.

I'm a little late for my review, however, I took this dish to a Christmas dinner at my sister's house. She had approximately 15 people over for dinner. All I could say is that I wish I made more than 1 of these wreath's!!! It was a huge success and everyone raved all evening about it! Thanks for the recipe...this is certainly a keeper!!

I made this with substitutions. I used a puff pastry, omitted the broccoli, added roasted garlic, roasted red pepper and herbs. Turned out pretty amazing and is being requested over and over.
