This is the football snack to end all football snacks. Or the best snack to bring to any and every get together, really. It’s butter crescent dough smother in bacon, brown sugar and maple syrup that’s baked to golden brown perfection to create the most mouthwatering treat I’ve ever tasted. I’m drooling just now writing about it!
Ever since that fateful day it was introduced to our family we’ve all made it at least once and even on occasion two of us with show up with a plateful at a party—not that anyone’s complaining. If you only ever make one snack again you’ve gotta make it this one!
1 lb. bacon
1 pkg Pillsbury crescent rolls
1/2 CUP Maple syrup
3/4 CUP Brown sugar
Preheat oven to 325 degrees°F.
Line a rimmed baking sheet (like a 15×10) with foil and liberally grease the foil with cooking spray.
Unroll the crescent rolls into one single plane of dough and pinch any perforations together to seal.
Stretch the dough out to fit the size of the pan with your hands so it’s even.
Prick the dough with a fork all over. Set aside.
Meanwhile, cook your bacon till lighter in color and not quite crispy.
Drain the bacon on a paper towel-lined plate.
Drizzle 1/4 cup of the maple syrup over the crescent roll dough.
Sprinkle with about 1/4 cup of the brown sugar.
Top with torn pieces of the cooked bacon.
Drizzle the remaining maple syrup on top of the bacon pieces, and top with the remaining brown sugar.
Bake for approx. 25 minutes or until bubbling and caramelized.
Remove from the oven and allow the pan to come to room temperature.
Cool before cutting into pieces.

Quick tip: Adding a small sprinkle of cayenne pepper adds a great and unexpected kick—just don’t get too heavy handed with it.
