"These appetizer bites are a huge crowd pleaser, and a big hit with my family to munch on before dinner during the holidays. The plate is usually empty in about 10 minutes, so make enough! If you don't like black olives, puree them in the blender and add them to the cream cheese mix and no one will ever know they are in there, but they add lots of flavor, so don't omit them, and they will never know the difference! Sometimes I add chopped plum tomatoes, as they are firm and not real juicy."

Tips & Variations

No special items needed.



A great little appy for the holidays, or any time really. I love anything using crescent rolls, so I knew we would like these. I cut the recipe down, using one roll for just the two of us. It still made quite a few squares to enjoy throughout the holidays.

I was entertaining and this was the perfect appetizer to have before dinner. This went over like gangbusters with my company and us! I used my mini chopper to chop up all the vegetables, so it didn't take long and they went together really fast after getting all the veggies ready. These are so appealing to the eye once on a serving dish and they were gone in no time. I will serve them many more times when entertaining and during the holidays. A real pleasing appetizer that everyone loved!

I have made this many times when appetizers were needed, even for guests. Always well received, and so easy to use whatever veggies you like. I usually add some shredded cheese the the top or some cheese crumbles. It makes a light meal as well. I love this
