Here's an easy recipe for dinner for you:

Use an 8 x 8 pan and unroll the crescent rolls and lay them in the bottom of the pan (I think you use all but two). Then spread enchilada sauce mixed with ground beef or turkey and some refried beans (I cook them a bit first). Top with shredded mexican cheese and bake. Just follow time for crescent rolls. This is an awesome, tasty dinner that you can throw together quickly even with the kids underfoot!

I love crescent rolls warm with lots of butter and strawberry jam. One of my favorite recipes is

Pampered Chefs Chicken Broccoli Braid

2 cups cooked chicken, chopped
1 cup broccoli, chopped
1/2 cup red bell pepper, chopped
1 garlic clove, pressed
4 oz. (1cup) sharp cheddar cheese, shredded
1/2 cup mayonnaise
2 tsp. all-purpose dill mix
1/4 tsp. salt
2 pkgs. (8oz. each) refrigerated crescent rolls
1 egg white, lightly beaten
2 tbls. slivered almonds

Preheat oven to 375F. Chop chicken and broccoli using food chopper; place in 2 qt. batter bowl. Chop bell pepper using 5" utility knife; add to batter bowl. Press garlic over vegetable mixture using garlic press. Shred cheese using cheese grater and add to vegetable mixture; mix gently. Add mayonnaise, dill mix, and salt; mix well using scraper. Unroll 1 package of crescent dough; do not separate. Arrange longest sides of dough across width of 12" x 15" rectangle baking stone. Repeat with remaining package of dough. Using roller, roll dough to seal perforations. On longest sides of baking stone, cut dough into strips 1 1/2 inches apart, 3 inches deep using a pizza cutter (there will be 6 inches in the center for the filling). Spread filling evenly over middle of dough. To braid, lift strips of dough across mixture to meet in center, twisting each strip on turn. Continue alternating strips to form a braid. Tuck ends under to seal at end of braid. Brush egg white over dough using pastry brush. Sprinkle with almonds. Bake 25-28 minutes or until deep golden brown.
Substitute 1 tsp. dried dill weed for The Pampered Chef Pantry All-Purpose Dill Mix, if desired.

Something my kids love to help make and is fun to do as a family.

I make mini apple pie-ish things by baking them with a slice of apple and some cinnamon sugar wrapped inside.

Melinda said...

I make a version of sloppy put flaky biscuit at the bottom of jumbo muffin pans, cook up beef and BBQ sauce in a skillet pan, then pour the meat/sauce in the cupcake pans, and fold the dough around the meet mixture...and bake. They are really easy and tasty

Nicole said...

We love to make our own garlic bread whenever we order from Papa John's. Spread the crescent rolls flat and brush it with the garlic sauce that comes with the pizza and cover in mozzarella cheese. Bake and enjoy!

Aimee said...

I make bacon/cream cheese roll-ups with crescent rolls. All you do is take a package of cream cheese (softened) and mix in some crumbled bacon. Then spread it on to the crescent triangles and roll up. They're SOOOOO yummy. You can also make "mini" ones by cutting your triangles in half...then you've got a nice appetizer! Yummy!!
