Burgers' Smokehouse Bacon:  Easy Recipes

Tips for cooking bacon!

We love bacon!  We are especially partial to our bacon at Burgers' Smokehouse.  All of our bacon is dry-cured, no water added and slow smoked for a flavor and bite that is unique to our bacon and sets bacon recipes apart from other "recipes with bacon."

Today we are sharing a couple of our favorite bacon recipes that have been favorites of our team, including one pioneered by our own Mary (Burger) Keil, E.M. Burger's daughter.

Bacon and Cream Cheese Pinwheels

Of all the bacon recipes, one of our favorites for a quick & delicious appetizer!


  • 1/2 lb. Burgers' Smokehouse Bacon - any flavor (cooked & chopped)
  • 1/2 c. Onion Chopped, finely
  • 6 oz. cream cheese softened
  • 3-4 T. Garlic Powder
  • 2 cans - crescent refrigerator rolls

Step 1: Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.

Step 2: Unroll crescent rolls into eight rectangles (2 triangles per rectangle) and pinch together the seams.

Step 3: Spread each rectangle with cream cheese and then sprinkle with garlic powder, chopped bacon, and finely chopped onion.

Step 4: Roll up each rectangle from the short side to create lots of layers!

Step 5: Cut each roll into 4 slices and place on an ungreased baking sheet.

Step 6: Bake at 375 degrees F for 12-15 minutes until golden brown.
