Cheesesteak Crescent Rolls always disappear fast! Flaky crescent rolls stuffed with sliced beef, sautéed onions and peppers, lots of gooey cheese make these the perfect appetizer or dinner.
Cheesesteak Crescent Rolls
These Cheesesteak Crescent Rolls are in permanent dinner rotation at our house! I came up with them one evening while scrounging around for dinner ingredients and they turned out better than I even expected. My family devoured them all in one sitting, and they’ve become one of their most requested meals. Pair it with a green salad and you’re good to go!
- These crescent roll bites are versatile and can easily be switched up to meet anyone’s tastes. Use shredded rotisserie chicken, diced deli turkey, leftover Thanksgiving turkey, Christmas ham, or sliced sauteed steak. Try our fabulous Easy Chicken Crescent Roll Ups as an alternative.
- If you’re not a fan of Swiss cheese, you could use extra sharp cheddar, Colby Jack, provolone, pepper jack, mozzarella, just about any cheese you like!
- Try using flavored cream cheese too! A good onion and chive cream cheese gives the flavor an extra boost.
- No green peppers on hand? No problem. Switch out to red, yellow or orange peppers, which gives the crescent roll-ups a sweeter flavor.
- For really big appetites, try our Easy Philly Cheesesteaks. They are much like these little bite-sized cheesesteaks… but regular sized for when you are REALLY hungry.
What to Serve with Cheesesteak Crescent Rolls
A platter of these delicious rolls make a perfect appetizer for any occasion. But they work well as an actual meal. Serve with a helpig of Easy Garden Vegetable Rice, or our Oven Roasted Vegetables, some Parmesan Baked Potato Halves or just a simple green salad. If you make them as a meal you may even want to double the batch so you can have leftovers for lunch the next day. They re-heat very well and make for awesome leftover lunches/snacks. If you want to make them even more bite-sized, cut each dough triangle in half and use less filling. Just stick a toothpick in when they are done for serving. This way your guests can eat them in just one bite!
How to Make Cheesesteak Crescent Rolls
- Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
- In a large skillet, saute onion and pepper in butter over medium heat until they become soft and onions become transparent.
- Coarsely chop roast beef and add to onion/pepper mix.
- Stir for about 2-3 minutes or until roast beef becomes hot. Add cream cheese, stirring until cream cheese is melted and coats the roast beef. Remove from heat.
- Separate crescents dough into triangles and press flat.
- Slice each Swiss cheese slice into 4 strips and lay each strip over each crescent triangle.
- Scoop about 2 tablespoons of roast beef mix over each triangle and roll up, pinching the sides of the crescent so cheese doesn’t ooze out.
- Place crescent rolls on an ungreased cookie sheet and bake at 375 degrees for 10-13 minutes or until golden brown.
