  • 2 8-oz tubes crescent rolls
  • 1 8-oz chive and onion cream cheese softened
  • 2 Tbsp mayonnaise
  • 2 Tbsp grated Parmesan cheese
  • ½ tsp garlic salt
  • ½ tsp lemon pepper
  • ½ tsp garlic powder
  • 1 10-oz frozen chopped spinach thawed, drained squeeze dry
  • 6 green onion thinly sliced
  • 2 cups shredded sharp cheddar cheese divided
  • 6 slices bacon cooked and crumbled


  • In a medium size mixing bowl using an electric mixer, cream together the cream cheese, mayonnaise, Parmesan and seasonings.
  • Mix in the spinach and green onion by hand mixing until fully blended. Add 1 cup cheddar cheese. Mix well
  • Roll out the crescent rolls into a 16 x 14 inch rectangle. Press the perforations together.
  • Spread the spinach mixture from edge to edge. Sprinkle with bacon and remaining 1 cup cheddar cheese.
  • Begin to roll from the widest edge ending seam side down. Place into the refrigerator for 2 hours or wrap in plastic wrap and chill overnight. (Tip: Don't skip this step. Chilling allows the cream cheese to firm and the pinwheels to slice more easily)
  • To bake: Preheat the oven to 375°F. Line a large baking sheet with parchment. 
  • Use a sharp knife to cut into 16 even pieces. Place 2-inches apart on pan.
  • Bake for 20 minutes or until golden.  Serve warm.
