INGREDIENTS LIST

  • 1 tube (8 ounces) refrigerated crescent rolls

  • 1 package (8 ounces) bacon, chopped

  • 2 small apples, peeled, cored and chopped

  • 1/2 cup chopped sweet onion

  • 4 slices (1 ounce each) North Country Swiss Cheese

  • 4 slices (1 ounce each) North Country Smoked Gouda Cheese

  • 1 plum, thinly sliced

  • 1 cup fresh arugula

Instructions

  1. Heat oven to 375°. Unroll crescent roll dough and separate into four rectangles; place on an ungreased baking sheet. Press to seal perforations. Cut each rectangle in half widthwise. Bake for 8-12 minutes or until golden brown. Remove to a wire rack to cool completely.

  2. Meanwhile, cook and stir bacon, apples and onion in a large skillet over medium heat until bacon is crisp. Remove bacon mixture to a paper towel to drain.

  3. Cut each cheese slice in half. Layer four crescent rectangles with 1 slice swiss, 1 slice smoked gouda, plum slices, bacon mixture and arugula. Top each with remaining swiss, smoked gouda and crescent rectangles. Cook in a panini maker or indoor grill until cheese is melted, about 2-3 minutes.
