Casey B's Bacon Cheddar Pinwheels modified from foodnetwork.com
Why I Love This Recipe
I found this recipe last week, I’ve never tried them but I can’t wait to. It’s bacon and cheddar with a little bit of chopped green onions, wrapped in a crescent with a hint of ranch dressing, then I am going to add a little bit of extra bacon on top. CHEMISTRY INFO: The only pure substance is salt (NaCl). The homogeneous mixtures in the ingredients are the cheddar cheese, the crescents, and the onions. The heterogeneous mixtures are the bacon, ranch dressing, and the whole crescent after it’s stuffed with the ingredients. The dough for the crescent getting thicker, and the bacon getting crunchy in the oven are signs of a chemical change. A physical change is cutting the dough to make it the right size for the oven, and the cheese melting inside of the crescent.
