* Update: If you have come here from Pinterest, I just wanted to say thanks for stopping by! Take a look around for other quick and easy meal ideas. If you like these crescent rolls for dinner you might also like my easy calzones that also can be made for carnivores or vegetarians. They use ready made pizza crusts. Or perhaps you would like my crescent roll breakfast apple turnovers. Just click on the hyperlinks to see these ideas. Again, thanks for visiting the site and I hope you come back!
It is no secret the carnivore and I like different things. There are, however, a few things we both love - like cheese and bread. This nifty dinner not only works in these things we hold near and dear, but it is also super quick. (Plus, you can adjust it be either vegetarian or carnivore friendly.) It is a wonderful way to throw together a meal in minutes on those days when the rest of your day has been spiraling out of control.
Start with a roll of 4 regular Pillsbury crescent rolls. Unroll them and divide the rolls in half leaving two triangles connected. You should have two rectangles. Lightly flour them and a rolling pin. Flatten the rectangles out some. Then place them on a greased cookie sheet. Top each with your chosen ingredients. This night we both had swiss cheese. The carnivore also had deli ham, while I had vidalia onions and basil. Once filled roll the reactangles. Then bake these beauties according to the directions (usually a little more than ten minutes at 375 degrees). Remove from the oven while golden brown and serve while hot.
They are buttery and satisfying. Plus, you can vary this recipe to suit anyone's tastes or dietary restrictions. Oh, and as you can see they take little time to make. This is a great meal for those nights you work late and need to through something together quick. I promise they will stop things from spiraling out of control. Nothing like a super with some of your favorite things (like cheese and bread) does the trick faster - except maybe a meal that is ready in minutes. And, this will do both.
We serve these with other readily available/easy to make veggies (for the nights I don't want to think about dinner) like sauteed green beans and boiled potatoes.
