$1,000,000 Grand Prize winner in the 2013 Pillsbury Bake-Off contest! Read a blog about this recipe here:


1 bag (11.8 Oz) Green Giant® Steamers™ Frozen Backyard Grilled Potatoes
1¼ cups Finely Shredded Sharp Cheddar Cheese, 5 oz
½ cup Cooked Real Bacon Bits, from a jar or package
3 Tbsp Milk
1 can Pillsbury® Crescent Recipe Creations® Refrigerated Seamless Dough Sheet or 1 Can (8-oz) Pillsbury® Refrigerated Crescent Dinner Rolls
⅓ cup Sour Cream
2 Tbsp Finely Chopped Green Onion Tops, 3 medium


Heat oven 350°F. Spray 2 large cookie sheets with Crisco® Original No-Stick Cooking Spray. Microwave frozen potatoes 3 to 4 minutes to thaw. In medium bowl, with fork, mash potatoes leaving some small pieces. Stir in cheese, 1/3 cup of the bacon bits and the milk until well blended.

If using crescent dough sheet, unroll dough on cutting board; press into 14x8-inch rectangle. If using crescent rolls, unroll dough on cutting board, press into 14x8-inch rectangle, firmly pressing perforations to seal. Cut into 2 rectangles, 14x4-inches each. Spread half of the potato mixture on one rectangle to within 1/4-inch of long edges. Starting at one long side, tightly roll up dough; pinch seams to seal. Using serrated knife, cut roll into 14 slices. Place slices, cut side up, on cookie sheets. Repeat with remaining dough and filling.

Bake 17 to 21 minutes or until golden brown. Immediately, remove from cookie sheets to serving plate. Top each pinwheel with sour cream, remaining bacon bits and the green onions. Serve warm.
