Ingredients

  • 6 slices bacon
  • 1/2 lb. asparagus, about 8 pieces
  • half a lemon
  • salt
  • ground black pepper
  • 7 oz. wheel of brie
  • flour, for rolling out dough
  • 1 (8-ounce) tube crescent dough

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 375°. 
  • In a large skillet over medium heat, cook bacon until crispy, about 10 minutes. Drain bacon on paper towels and leave a couple tablespoons of bacon fat in the skillet. 
  • Add asparagus to skillet and cook until asparagus is bright green and only slightly tender. Season with salt and pepper then remove from skillet and squeeze lemon juice on top. 
  • Chop bacon and asparagus into bite-size pieces. Set aside.
  • Trim rind off of brie with a sharp knife and then cut brie into small square pieces, about 1-inch wide.
  • On a lightly floured surface, unroll crescent dough into a large rectangle. Pinch together any seems that have opened. Cut dough into 24 squares.
  • Spray a 24-cup mini muffin tin with cooking spray. Place a crescent square into each muffin cup then fill with brie, cooked bacon, and asparagus.
  • Bake until crescent is golden (not burnt),  and cheese is bubbling and melting over, about 15 minutes.
  • Serve immediately.
