Bacon & Cream Cheese Crescents

This is one of my all time favorite appetizers.  These Bacon & Cream Cheese Crescents always disappear fast and taste amazing!  I have made these for many parties, and people love them!  Enjoy!

2 packages refrigerated crescent rolls
8 slices bacon, cooked and crumbled
8 ounces cream cheese, very soft
1/2 C shredded Parmesan cheese
2 teaspoons garlic powder
2 T finely chopped onion
1 T milk
2 T chopped Italian parsley
1 egg
Poppy seeds, if desired

NOTE:  I used whole crescent triangles and made larger crescents.  You can cut the triangles into half triangles and get smaller crescents if you want bite-sized pieces.

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.  Stir together the bacon, cream cheese, Parmesan chese, garlic powder, onion, milk, and parsley.  Separate the crescent rolls into triangles. Put about a 1 1/2 T dollop of the filling onto the center of each triangle.  Roll the triangles up the way you would normally roll crescent rolls up.  Put them on a baking sheet.  Beat the egg with a splash of water and brush the tops of the crescents with the egg mixture.  Sprinkle poppy seeds on top, if desired.  Bake the crescents for 12-15 minutes or until the tops are well browned and the crescent rolls are done in the center.
