Cheesesteak crescent rolls are the perfect appetizer or dinner. Flaky crescent rolls stuffed with sliced beef, sauteed onions and peppers, and gooey cheese.
I love it when you come up with an idea for a new recipe and it turns out even better than you thought it would… for me, these cheesesteak crescent rolls was one of those recipes! My family DEVOURED all of these in one sitting (my 2-year old ate up 2 of them)!
You can switch these up by using shredded chicken (way good with rotisserie chicken) or you can even use cut up deli turkey. The possibilities are endless, really. You can cater to your family’s likes and dislikes very easily. If you aren’t keen on using roast beef– you can absolutely use thinly sliced, sauteed steak. I am all about ease, so I usually stick with the roast beef.
Cheesesteak crescent rolls are a great appetizer but also work well as an actual meal. serve with some seasoned rice, veggies, and/or a fresh salad to make into a meal. 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!
You are going to love these! They are SO easy to make and your family will gobble them up!
- 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 Tbsp. 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.
If you are looking for a more traditional cheesesteak, be sure to try our Easy Philly Cheesesteaks. They are much like these little bite-sized cheesesteaks… but regular sized for when you are REALLY hungry.
