Bite-sized appetizers are a surefire method to entice the stomach to grumble for the main course, whatever it may be. These savory turkey bacon cream cheese puff pastries are one of the first creations I attempted in the kitchen adapted from a magazine clipping, back in my early teen years. I had forgotten about them until recently when my sweet auntie and little cousins requested them for a spontaneous tea party. Not only are they easy to make, but their bitty size, endearing shape, and flavor-packed taste make them a flaky and comforting winner at get-togethers of all sorts. Perhaps these shall make it onto our Thanksgiving menu this year! bacon cream cheese savory bites 3

Turkey Bacon Cream Cheese Puff Pastry Bites
Ingredients:
16 oz crescent roll dough
8 oz reduced-fat cream cheese
8 slices turkey bacon, cooked until crisp, crumbled
1/4 cup onion, minced
2 tbsp fresh parsley, chopped
1/3 cup fresh Parmesan cheese
1 tbsp fat-free milk

Directions:
1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. In a large bowl, mix cream cheese, turkey bacon, onion, parsley, Parmesan, and milk until well blended. Set aside.
2. Divide crescent roll dough into 4 rectangles. Spread each rectangle evenly with 2 tbsp cream cheese mixture.
3. Cut each rectangular piece of dough into six smaller rectangles. Cut each of the six small rectangles diagonally into triangular wedges. Fold a side of each triangle down so that there is a flap of dough over the cream cheese mixture.
4. Place puff pastry bites onto a greased baking sheet. Bake for about 12 minutes, until golden brown. Serve immediately.
