  1. You have me at bacon jam! I haven’t had or made them in a long while. These rolls look wonderfully delicious and full of great flavours.

  2. These look wonderful. I could see them either way — as the appetizer or side dish. I didn’t know they made bacon jam — I need to find that!

  3. Martha says:

    I’m pretty sure I need these in my life – yum!

  4. This is great! My brother makes bourbon bacon jam so I have a ready supply! We love asparagus, so these are perfect. Thanks.

  5. People love these little crescent rolls! So many possibilities.

    • I know as such an accomplished cook as yourself, you’re probably not a fan of refrigerated canned dough, but I love to have it on hand for fast and easy recipes, I even use it as a base for bar cookies, it’s handy stuff!

      • Whenever I’ve had something made with these canned crescents, they have been delicious. I don’t use it myself, but I do use pre-made puff pastry and that is a quick cheat as well! I figure if I’m going to use a pre-made dough with white flour carbs, I’ll go with the puff every time!

      • I love to use frozen puff pastry too, handy and delicious!

    Jenna, I didn’t know that Stonewall Kitchen had bacon jam. I am going to have to try it. That sounds yummy, and your rolls look scrumptious. I agree these would be great to serve at a party. I always look forward to all of the yummy recipes that you share. I think you need to write a cookbook! Wishing you a most beautiful day!

  7. Jill Kuhn says:

    Wow! These look yummy! I like the idea of bacon jam… I am also a big fan of asparagus! I was wondering how it would be without the cheese? I can’t have dairy. Or perhaps I can substitute a plant based cheese. Any suggestions? Thanks Jenna! ❤️

  8. These are a perfect appetizer. Thank you Jenna, for sharing!

  9. Ricki Treleaven says:

    These look so delicious, and perfect finger food, too! Thanks for sharing the recipe, Jenna. We love asparagus!
