Bacon Cheddar Pinwheel Appetizers
|All purpose flour||3⁄4 Cup (12 tbs)|
|Cheddar cheese||2 Ounce|
|Imitation bacon bits||2 Teaspoon|
|Onion flakes||2 Teaspoon|
|Ground red pepper||1⁄8 Teaspoon|
|Plain low fat yogurt||1⁄4 Cup (4 tbs)|
|Dijon style mustard||2 Tablespoon|
|Chopped fresh parsley/Chives||2 Tablespoon|
|Grated parmesan cheese||4 Teaspoon|
In small mixing bowl combine flour, Cheddar cheese, bacon bits, onion flakes, salt, and pepper.
With pastry blender, or 2 knives used scissors-fashion, cut in margarine until mixture resembles coarse meal; add yogurt and mix thoroughly.
Form dough into a ball, wrap in plastic wrap, and refrigerate for at least 1 hour.
Between two sheets of wax paper roll dough, forming a rectangle about 1/8-inch thick.
Spread mustard over dough and sprinkle with parsley (or chives), then roll up jelly-roll fashion; wrap in plastic wrap and freeze until dough slices easily, about 30 minutes.
Preheat oven to 400Â°F.
Cut rolled dough into 1/4-inch-thick pin-wheels; place on parchment-lined or nonstick baking sheet.
Sprinkle each pinwheel with an equal amount of Parmesan cheese and bake until lightly browned, about 15 minutes.
