Meant to write this a few weeks ago when my twitter timeline lit up with a discussion of all the things one can do with crescent rolls. Still, better late than never. These are all the crescent roll recipes I’ve actually tried, but I’d love to hear your ideas.
So the basic concept of crescent roll ups are to put your filling in the crescent roll, roll it up and bake according to the crescent roll package instructions.
Pizza rollups: pizza sauce, pepperoni and mozzarella cheese. Of course, just like with pizza, you can change things up. I usually add sausage & black olives to mine.
Southwestern: Black beans, sharp cheddar cheese, white onion, and cilantro. I like to dip this one in salsa when I’m eating them.
Chicken Alfredo: Alfredo sauce, shredded chicken, green onions, and green peppers with a little asiago cheese. This one doesn’t need a ton of sauce. I go with a spoonful on the crescent, then the filling, then one more spoon on top.
Veggie: Broccoli and cheese. For this one I recommend a blended cheese, like a 4-blend Mexican cheese or 3-blend Colby Jack. Load up on both the cheese and the broccoli for the best taste.
Wonton Style: Crab meat, green onions, and cream cheese. You can spice this one up with garlic or cayenne but it’s great on it’s own.
Chicken Parm: Chicken fingers, mozzarella, and spaghetti sauce. I haven’t actually had the chance to try this one yet but I can’t wait to test it out. I will probably add a little garlic for personal preferences.
Enchilada: Enchilada sauce, shredded meat (beef, chicken, or pork), finely chopped white onions, and cheddar cheese. This one is a big favorite of mine. I usually don’t roll this one though, instead I roll the crescent into squares and make like ravioli pockets out of them, that way I can get more sauce inside. Then I mix sour cream with a spicy salsa and heat it up on the stove for a dipping sauce.
*And when I said ravioli just now I got an idea to try doing a few others in a more ravioli style and frying the dough. I will keep y’all updated on how that turns out.*
Chocolate & Peanut Butter: Nutella, peanut butter, and a piece of a chocolate bar. Make sure to spread the first two ingredients out or you get a convoluted mess (yes, I made this mistake).
Apple Pie: Apple pie filling. Top with whip cream & caramel sauce out of the oven. You can do this one totally homemade but it’s so much easier to buy filling.
Berry: Mix equal amounts of cream cheese with powdered sugar then smear a generous portion on a roll and then dump on the berries of your choice.
Pumpkin: Pumpkin pie filling, cream cheese, and cinnamon. Another one that’s great with whip cream on top.
So what are your favorite crescent rollup ideas?
