  • 1
    Heat oven to 375°F. Line 9-inch round cake pan with cooking parchment paper. In small bowl, mix melted butter and garlic powder.
  • 2
    Remove dough from can, and separate into 6 rounds. Unroll each round into dough strip (about 12 inches long); brush inside of each unrolled dough strip, using up half of the melted butter mixture.
  • 3
    Cut each cheese slice into 4 strips. Top buttered side of dough strip with 4 cheese strips, overlapping slightly if necessary, and leaving 1/2 inch of one end uncovered to seal. Top cheese layer with 2 bacon slices.
  • 4
    Starting with strip end opposite uncovered end, roll dough back tightly into swirled round, sealing end of dough; place in pan. Repeat for remaining dough, cheese and bacon. Brush tops of dough with remaining melted butter mixture.
  • 5
    Bake 20 to 25 minutes or until dough is baked through and golden brown.

Expert Tips

  • Line the pan with cooking parchment paper for easier cleanup. If you don’t have parchment paper, you can spray the pan generously with cooking spray.
  • Substitute sharp cheddar cheese for the pepper Jack cheese for a delicious flavor twist.
  • Microwave-ready bacon is great to use since it’s quick and easy to cook. Regular cooked bacon can also be used in this recipe.
  • If desired, top with thinly sliced green onion before serving.
