  • 1 tbs butter
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped onion
  • 3 tbs apricot preserves
  • 8 oz tube crescent roll dough sheets preferred
  • 15 slices cooked bacon


  • Preheat oven to 375F/190C. Line a baking sheet with parchment.
  • Heat butter over medium heat. Add onion and cook until tender, 3-5 minutes. Reduce heat and add the apricot preserves; cook until melted.
  • Unroll crescent dough and roll into a 15 x 9-inch/38 x 23-cm rectangle. If using the perforated dough, seal seams and perforations. Cut into 15 1-inch/2.5-cm strips. Place a slice of bacon on each strip and roll up, jelly-roll style, from the short end. Place on prepared sheet seam side down.
  • Spoon the apricot mixture over each piece. Bake for 12-15 min or until golden brown. Let stand 5 minutes before serving.
