Grilled Cheese Bacon Crescent Squares

My Grilled Cheese Bacon Crescent Squares are insanely delicious. Only needs 3 ingredients! This is a blockbuster of a recipe! Guaranteed to be an instant favorite!

Grilled Cheese Bacon Crescent Squares

I’m a sucker for cheese.  The more cheese the better.  Recently, I made these insanely delicious Grilled Cheese Fries that completely blew my mind with all their addictive qualities. After the first batch, I had to make another batch.  Followed by another batch.  And maybe even another batch after that.  But, in my defense, my kids had friends over, and I literally had a teenage boy hanging beside my stove inhaling them as they were done. That’s my excuse and I’m sticking to it.

As I was inhaling enjoying my own servings, I thought to myself that the only way these could be any better was with the addition of bacon.  However, if you’ve checked out the recipe – you know it would be nearly impossible to add bacon to them.  Well, I’m sure it could have been done – but it would have been a pain in the booty. And when I’m cooking, I try to make recipes that don’t cause booty pain.  You feel me?

I needed to do something though because the thought of it had already invaded my brain – and my taste buds were beginning to beat the inside of my mouth with a hammer because they wanted something like that so badly.  Ok, so maybe I exaggerated that last statement… but only by a tiny itty bitty bit. What?  Your taste buds don’t torture you with hammers when they aren’t getting their way? I don’t believe you. 😉

So, I grabbed the same basic ingredients that the grilled cheese fries called for – which if you read the recipe, you already know it only needed 2 ingredients.  Crescent rolls & Velveeta cheese.  And to shut my brain up & stop the whole taste bud torturing I was enduring, I pulled out a package of bacon and fried it on up.  Mmmm, bacon.  Now we’re talking.

Honestly, I made this up as I went. I took some quick pictures just in case the recipe was a success.  And if you are paying any attention what-so-ever to the pictures in this post – you already know this recipe was definitely a success.

Actually way more than just a success. It was a gosh darn blockbuster.  

Grilled Cheese Bacon Crescent Squares3 ingredients people!  Simple, fast, cheap, – and full of all that taste bud tantalizing deliciousness we all crave when we put food in our mouths.  What more can you ask for?  Well, yes – maybe the numbers for a winning lottery ticket… But I’m a food blogger y’all – not a psychic.  😉

Here’s what you need:

Grilled Cheese Bacon Crescent Squares

Unroll a can of crescent rolls & press the seams together.  Press it out a little to stretch it out a bit with your hands.  A little tip, I lightly floured my countertops just so I didn’t have any chance of crescent rolls sticking to my counters.

Lay a good layer of cheese on top.  I used Velveeta just because I love how gooey it melts.  I know not everyone is a fan of it, so feel free to use whatever cheese you like. Just make sure you put a nice layer of it on the crescent rolls.

Now for the bacon.  I fried up a pound’s worth – minus a couple pieces because, well… I just couldn’t resist eating a couple pieces.  I have to keep my womanly figure somehow.

Lay out your bacon all on top of the cheese.

Unroll the other can of crescent rolls & top it all of with it. Press all the seams together both on top and all around to seal in all that cheese & bacon goodness.

You’re gonna want it to easily pull apart into squares after it’s cooked.  So, grab a knife or pizza cutter (I totally prefer a pizza cutter for this!) and slice it into squares. Then, using a large spatula – take the entire thing and lay it on a baking sheet sprayed with non-stick cooking spray.

The trick is to line up the squares you just cut on the baking sheet exactly the way that you cut them – with no separation between the squares.  This keeps the cheese where it belongs.  Refer to the picture below if you have any confusion.

Bake at 375 for 12-15 minutes, or until the top of the crescent roll squares are nicely browned.

Let them cool on a wire rack for 3-5 minutes before grabbing one and digging in.

YUM!  YUM!  YUMMMMM!!!

Total time: 
Serves: Serves 6-8
 
Ingredients
  • 2 cans of crescent rolls
  • Velveeta cheese - sliced (or substitute your favorite cheese)
  • 12oz or 16oz package of bacon, cooked
  • flour for dusting (optional)
Instructions
  1. Preheat your oven to 375 degrees. Spray a baking sheet with non-stick cooking spray. Lightly flour your work surface if you don't want any crescent roll stickage.
  2. Unroll one can of crescent rolls on your work surface. Using your hands, press the seams together and lightly press & stretch a little into a nice rectangle. Add a layer of cheese (I like a pretty thick layer, & I use Velveeta because I love how it melts) & then add your layer of bacon. Unroll the remaining can of crescent rolls on top & press all the seems together both on top and all around.
  3. Using a pizza cutter or a knife (I prefer a pizza cutter personally) slice into squares. Place the entire thing on your baking sheet using a large spatula, working in batches if you need to. Lay all the squares right beside each other, just as they were before you sliced it. You want all the cut seams to be touching so that your cheese doesn't leak out. Refer to the pictures in the post if you need to.
  4. Bake for 12-15 minutes, or until the top of the crescent rolls are lightly browned. Remove from the oven & cool on a wire rack for 3-5 minutes before digging in. The crescent squares will pull right apart. Serve & enjoy!

  • If you cut them with a ravioli cutter it will seal the seams. This look awesome! Bacon and cheese? What could possibly go wrong?

    • I looked up the ravioli cutter on Amazon and I guess there are different kinds. The one I use is the wheel and it can be used for pastry, too (which I never realized – duh!)

  • Domestically Speaking

    You can’t go wrong with bacon and cheese! I’m featuring your great recipe tomorrow in my Friday Features. Thanks for sharing them at Inspire Me Monday.

    OH YES…..and you served on the Temptations …gonna make this next game night with friends and cards when I take all their money

  • OH MY!!!! I just made this for lunch along with tomato soup. It is REALLY good! My husband LOVED it. I used pepper bacon – delish! If anyone is using the slices of Velvetta (I did) I stacked 2 pieces on each area and that seemed to be just the right amount of cheese. I will definitely be making this again.

  • Trudy Walker

    I’m totally going to make this for my next get together. As I was reading it I thought how good jalapeno peppers would taste on this!! I’m going to try it that way!!
    Thanks for this fantastic recipe.
    I’d put it together on the cookie sheet also and just score the crust and cut it after it’s baked. Does that sound like a good idea?

  • Louise

    looks yummy:-) Will definitely try.

  • Gina

    Can’t wait to try. May also try adding drained veggies and cooked chicken. Make it like a pot pie.

  • dee

    want bacon with those grilled cheese fries? maybe try wrapping them. wrapping things is big

    • dee

      or use bacon crumbles but that could be messy if they don’t stick.

  • JohnandLisa Ghenne

    This is a great idea but why wouldn’t you start off with the bottom layer of crescents in the pan? I have similar recipes using crescents and I always put the bottom layer in a pan. Also Pillsbury now makes Recipe Creations crescents that are one solid sheet. So much easier to use. Sorry, not trying to complain, just wanting to understand why you didn’t put them in a pan first? Thanks!

    • StoneMaven

      “Recipe Creations crescents that are one solid sheet” YAY!!!!

    • Jo

      I think that would be easier, you get the same results as fixing them and then moving them to the pan.

    I would use parchment paper on the pan.

  • Did you know they make crescent dough sheets?! No more pressing seams together!

    • I do, but sadly I haven’t been able to find them for some time locally!

  • Amy E

    I made these today and they are delicious. Only complaint is too many steps. Next time I’m putting the bottom layer right in the pan, putting the bacon and cheese on, putting the top layer on and not pre-cutting them. And for my small family I might use just one can of crescents. This made a lot and was scrumptious!

    • Brooke Lorren

      That’s what I’m going to do. I’m going to add some cut vegetables too.

  • Donna

    If I wanted eggs in my, would I scrambled the eggs first?

  • June Leathers

    Could I use sausage instead of bacon to make this?

  • Renee

    getting ready to try this, looks amazing! I am adding ground hamburger for a bacon cheeseburger taste 🙂

  • Jo

    How do you figure that?

  • I like everything you presented. I’m going to try everything

  • Suzanne

    oh my this is dangerous stuff right here! I’m currently making your cabbage rolls for the first time and can’ t wait to eat them!

    • Josh Weaver

      I just made cabbage rolls too. For the first time since high school, when they served them often. Always loved them. Did you use Crescent rolls for cabbage rolls?

  • Josh Weaver

    This is a wonderful recipe. Everyone i’ve made this for loves it. The only thing I do differently is to leave uncut while baking and slice after it cools a bit. I also sometimes add sautéed onion or jalapeño to the filling. Oh, and I use American and cheddar instead of Velveeta. I only use velveeta in Mac and cheese.
