How to Make Brown Sugar, Bacon & Brie Crescent Rolls
STEP ONE: Cut the rind from the brie and cut the cheese into cubes. Preheat the oven according to the temperature on the package of crescent rolls. Unroll the crescent roll dough and separate the triangles.
STEP TWO: Place the triangles of dough on a baking sheet and place a cube of brie cheese at the base of each triangle, followed by a sprinkling of brown sugar and bacon crumbles.
STEP THREE: Roll the dough with the brie mixture inside into a crescent shape.
STEP FOUR: Bake according to the crescent roll package directions. Serve the Brown Sugar, Bacon & Brie Crescent Rolls warm or at room temperature.
Tips for Success
- For this recipe, the rind is cut from the brie to make it easier for the cheese to mix with the sugar and bacon, but if you prefer to leave the rind on, then do.
- Remember to follow the instructions listed on the crescent roll package for cook times.
- Keep any leftover rolls stored in an airtight container in the fridge for 2-3 days. You can warm them in the microwave for a few seconds if you like the rolls warm, but brie is also delicious when cold, so the choice is yours!
What kind of brie should I use?
Picking out a delicious brie can be a little overwhelming, as there are many to choose from! Most American stores sell American-made brie, which is a milder brie made with pasteurized milk, along with French brie, which is more pungent and made with unpasteurized milk. With that being said, you really can’t go wrong when picking out brie- it’s all delicious! Purchase your favorite brie for this particular recipe, or look for a double cream brie that is within your budget.
Can I eat the rind on brie?
Most cheese lovers will tell you emphatically that yes, you can, and in fact should, eat the rind! The rind on the brie has its own unique flavor and can enhance the overall flavor of the brie. If you don’t care for the rind, however, there’s no pressure to eat it or to serve it to your guests. Sometimes, the rind just gets in the way of diving into that buttery cheese anyway!
