I’ve totally been there more times than I care to admit. I’m crazy organized with my lists and planners but somehow, the big family Christmas pot luck falls through the cracks. It’s not that I forget about the event, only the cooking of the dish.

Then I run out of time and pick up something pre-made at the grocery store on the way there. I don’t know what it is about this particular task but I never seem to stick it in my brain. This year, I’m totally ready with these delicious cheddar bacon and broccoli pinwheels.

Luckily, they’re so easy to make, even if you’re not prepared (like I usually am not) you can easily whip up a batch to take with you. Even better? Everyone will absolutely love them!

Cheddar Bacon and Broccoli Pinwheels Ingredients

On a separate piece of parchment paper (or other non-stick surface) roll out one can of crescent rolls dough.

Step 13

Allow your pinwheels to cool on the baking sheet for 2 minutes and then transfer them to a cooling rack. This keeps them from falling apart when you transfer them to the rack.
