ANTIPASTO CRESCENT BITES

 

  • Cooking Time: 14
  • Servings: 16
  • Preparation Time:

Ingredients

  • 2-oz cream cheese( do not use reduced fat or fat free)
  • 8-oz tube of crescent rolls
  • 1 egg plus 1 Tbs water, (beaten)
  • 4(3x3/4" )roasted red pepper strips
  • 2 large marinated artichoke hearts, cut in 1/2 lenghtwise
  • 1 thin slice of Genoa or other salami cut into strips( used Ham)
  • 4 stuffed green olives, cut into halves( could not fit these on)

Directions

  • Cut the cream cheese into 16 equal pieces, about 1 tsp per piece.
  • Oven set at 375.
  • Cut each dough triangle in 1/2 lengthwise. Brush the edges with the egg wash.
  • Wrap 1 red pepper strip around a piece of the cream cheese.
  • Place on the dough and roll up.
  • Do the same with the artichoke half again roll up.
  • Do the same with the salami roll up.
  • Again the same with the green olives.
  • Repeat this process on all remaining triangles. Place the stuffed triangle on an ungreased baking sheet and brush with the egg wash.
  • Bake 12-14 minutes.
  • I started mine from the thin point and worked my way up to the wide point I also place the triangle seam side down to bake and if making 16 bites you will need more red pepper, artichokes and salami and olives.
  • You could brush the dough with some Italian dressing in place of the egg wash and you could switch cheeses and peppers.
