French Dip Crescents

29 Apr

Two of Adam’s favorite foods are French Dip sandwiches and crescent rolls. Needless to say, when I found this recipe for the two combined, I knew I had to make them. And was that ever a good idea! He polished off 5 of these little guys while exclaiming how good they were and that I was free to make them any time I wanted. And to be so simple, I think this recipe’s a winner!

You will need:

1 tube crescent rolls

1/2 lb sliced roast beef

2-4 mozzarella string cheeses

1 packet au jus gravy mix

garlic powder (optional)

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Roll out crescent dough and divide into 8 triangles. Unwrap the string cheese and cut in half lengthwise, then cut in half again the opposite direction, making four pieces. If you prefer yours to be a bit cheesier, use 4 string cheeses simply cut in half. At the wide end of the dough, add a slice of roast beef (bunched up) and top with a piece of string cheese. Roll the dough into crescents and place on a cookie sheet. Sprinkle garlic powder across tops of crescents, if desired. Bake for 11-13 minutes or until golden brown.

While the french dips are baking, mix the au jus gravy according to directions on the package and serve as a dipping sauce.

I found this recipe and more detailed photos at Life as a Lofthouse.
