ISO recipes using crescent rolls

Do you have any good recipes using refrigerator cresent rolls? I went to Pillsbury® - Default for some recipes but am looking for new ideas!

Thanks!

Pepperoni Squares

I've made this before, it's super easy and super tasty. If you only have one pkg. of rolls then just roll it into a square and cut it in half. Also 1/2 your other ingredients.

My favorite is to eat them just after they are baked and add a bit of my favorite jam. My preference is apricot, grape, or strawberry jam.

My neighbor used to spread Nutella on the pastry before rolling up. Bake as directed on the package and sprinkle with powdered sugar. They are delicious!

family favorite-
hot dogs, make a sliced half way through the hot dog (length wise)
American cheese or even swiss
I take the american cheese fold in in half and take each half place in the slice you made in dog.
wrap cresent roll starting with wide end and roll up hot dog and cheese.
bake according to cresent roll direction.
when rolls are down hot dog is done.

Here ya go, Angie.

Mushroom & Sour Cream-Filled Croissants

TNT - Mushroom & Sour Cream Filled Croissants

Edited to add a few more ideas:

Seems like eons ago (when I first started cooking), I made two pizzas in rectangular metal pans using the crescent roll/dough as the base. I would have to dig it out for the exact method, but basically you flatten & pinch the dough together & lay it out in the pan & bake - then add toppings of choice & heat till everything is melted & cooked through. A topping that may sound odd, but was very good, was tuna & sauteed strips of green peppers & onions, freshly-ground black pepper (shredded cheese & black sliced olives? Don't recall, but add what you like).

Calzone - Fillings can be ricotta, mozzarella, spinach, ham, mushrooms - any combo of ingredients you prefer, with a marinara dipping sauce.

A 'sweet' filling can be cream cheese & chocolate chips - or a rugalach (sp) filling i.e. raisins & chopped walnuts - or pie filling - apple, cherry etc.

On the savoury side - ground beef, diced onions, shredded cabbage and shredded cheese as a filling - like a Runza:

Runza®

Or a Reuben.

Look up pepperoni pinwheels on Pillsbury's web site. Of course pigs in the blanket with little smoke sausages are always popular. I spread a little bit of dijon on the inside side of the crescent roll before slicing and rolling the sausage up.

Nutella's first item on the list of ingredients is sugar. Then she also sprinkled it with powdered sugar? That makes my teeth ache just thinking about it. Does her dentist know about this?

I believe that Paula Deen has done something interesting with those Pop-N-Fresh things on her TV show. Let me look it up and get back to you.

I lied. She has TWO recipers for them:

We had a guy show up for a football game one Sunday and I'd whipped up these to munch on. He LOVED them so much that he mentioned them everytime he popped in. Finally he asked me for the 'recipe'. His wife does not cook, I mean - Does not cook at ALL!

His daughter asked me to work with her so I'm going to have a little 5 family neighbor party and teach her to make 3 casseroles and the crescent roll hot dogs. I thought she'd be able to make the casseroles at home for her family...oh yes, and the hot dogs .

Ham and Broccoli Ring

1 cup chopped ham
1/2 cup or so broc.
2 teaspoons lemon juice
1/4 cup mayo
3 tablespoons dijon mustard
1 cup cheddar cheese

Form a wreath with the crescents( or it looks like a star when it's flat) Mix up all of the above ingredients and spoon on your crescent star fold them over to form a wreath shape. Bake at 375 until brown and cheese melts.

Zippy Zucchini Recipes
You'll find my recipe for Zucchini Pie at the above link. It happens to be one of my family's favorites! You use the cresent roll dough for the pie crust.

Does anyone have the recipe to make the crescent rolls into a coffee cake? Maybe it isn't even crescent rolls. I had this years ago and loved it but never asked for the recipe. i know it was made with packaged rolls of some kind, and it had walnuts or pecans on it.

I think I posted this once when we were talking about cooking with children. My grandson and I make mini cinnamon rolls by keeping the crescent rolls in rectangles, spreading softened butter over the surface, then sprinkling cinnamon sugar and rolling very loosely into a log - cutting the logs into slices and baking as directed on package. A little powdered sugar and milk or cream makes a good glaze. So simple for children to do.(except the baking part, I do that). These are really good with a cup of tea.
