If you read blogs (which it appears you do), you've probably noticed the blogging world is super excited about fall. There are many things I love about the season, one of them being the return of routine. I love getting back into the day-to-day when it seems like summer is often so random and unplanned. 

I also love the return of warm comfort foods (it's way too hot to eat warm, savory foods in Texas summers) and one of our new favorite recipes are cheesy bacon + ranch roll-ups. They're great for breakfast, great for a snack, great for a football watching party, great for anything really + they're super easy to make. 

I did a grocery run at Tom Thumb before leaving for Influence Conference this past weekend so I could do a little meal prep for my boys and picked up the few ingredients we needed for the roll-ups, plus a few other things, and got down to baking for my boys. 

This is a great recipe to have the kids join in on too! Gunner loves helping me roll up the dough after I've added the's how to make those super simple roll-ups!


STEP ONE: You'll want to cook and chop up your bacon first. I cooked about six pieces but you could do more or less depending on what you like.

STEP TWO: Roll out your crescent rolls and spread a layer of ranch over them, then sprinkle the shredded cheese and bacon pieces over them. We've added chicken before too and that makes them a little more hearty and filling.

STEP THREE: Roll up the crescent rolls with all of the goodness inside. 

At this point I typically slice the rolls up into individual little rolls. However, this time around I decided to slice after cooking. While it was certainly easier to slice the cooked rolls, they didn't keep a very round form. Totally up to you which you'd prefer doing!

STEP FOUR: Pop the roll-ups into the oven for the suggested amount of time on the crescent roll package. 

And, enjoy! It really is so easy. Plus, you could add other yummy items if you'd like -- I think chopped up pepper would be a great addition or ground sausage instead of bacon.
