(I hope it works!) Since I don't like pineapple, I was thinking of using a different spread, maybe an herbed one or getting plain cream cheese and adding a spice mix to it, say maybe italian or taco.
Also, I don't want to use onions. Should they just be left off or replaced with something else? One of the people this will be for doesn't like onions at all.
Lastly, this is probably a crazy idea. I'm wondering if it would work if the peppers & brocolli were cooked instead of raw. The peppers, I'm thinking I would slice them saute them in evoo. The brocolli, just maybe blanched in boiling water - just enough to give it that crisp green color but not make it limp.
What do you think? Would the changes work or leave it as is? Or would you make other changes?
You could blanch or steam the broc, but I like the idea of using fresh veggies atop the baked (cooled) rolls. And, add in steamed chopped cauliflower.
Another suggestion - top the cooled baked rolls with spinach or Leek dip and finely chopped red peppers.
2 tubes crescent rolls
8 ounces cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup sour cream
1 teaspoon dill weed
garlic powder, to taste
1 1/2 - 2 cups broccoli florets, chopped
*1/2 cup red pepper, finely chopped
Cut the tubes in slices. Arrange in a circle & bake at 375 until golden. Cool. Combine everything except the broc & peppers & spread over wreath. Top with chopped broccoli and *chopped red peppers.
*In place of the red peppers, you could use halved cherry tomatoes, grape tomatoes or pimiento & garnish with a few celery leaves.
