Crescent Roll Wreaths

Today, I’m going to post onto this blog/website twice:
First, I’m going to share one of my favorite things to create for dinner: CRESCENT ROLL WREATH!
Second, I’m going to show you another fun little photo editing app for iPhone/iPad users that I use occasionally, named WATERMYPHOTO.

Ok, the crescent roll wreaths… Love them!! Here we go…

The crescent roll wreaths/rings are great, because they can be stuffed with any of your favorite meats, veggies, and sauces, whatever is seasonal, and any sort of leftovers sitting in your refrigerator. Seriously, the options are endless! You can create breakfast wreaths, dinner wreaths, dessert wreaths, and wreaths for special occasions like bridal showers, baby showers, pot-luck events, and more. I make crescent roll wreathes A LOT. The reason? They’re pretty simple and they look great. Presentation matters.

I almost always use the same brand of pre-made crescent roll dough in a tube. Their recipe for breakfast wreaths using bacon and eggs looks pretty good, too! Pillsbury brand crescent rolls yield consistent results for me. Here is another crescent wreath that I made a couple of weeks ago:

EASY CRESCENT WREATHS RECIPES:
These wreaths are really easy. You decide how big or small you want to make the wreath and use a quantity of crescent roll dough accordingly. I’m feeding a family of 5, so I use two tubes of 8 crescent triangles (16 total.) The “stuffing” includes meats and veggies that have already been cooked and any sort of sauce or cheese to help hold it all together. Use ANYTHING as a stuffing for the wreath. When I lay out the wreath, I put the short sides of the triangles together, making sure that they overlap. I add the ring of stuffing, and then I tuck the tips of the triangles under. I promise, its easy. You can’t go wrong.
It goes in the oven at 350F for 25 minutes, primarily to cook the crescent dough. I always bake mine on a pizza stone, but I would guess that it would work fine on a greased cookie sheet, too!

*The top photo shows the one that my husband and daughters refer to as the “PIZZA WREATH”. It is stuffed with cooked ground beef, crispy bacon, pepperoni, sautéed onion/peppers/mushrooms, and then is held together with 3/4 jar of Arrabbiatta sauce and a layer of cheese. As a finishing touch, I brushed the crescent dough with butter, sprinkled garlic powder, and a generous dusting of Parmesan cheese.

*The wreath in the second photo was stuffed with chicken, onions, peppers, garlic, chipotle salsa, sour cream, and cheese with crumbled corn chips pressed into the crescent dough, for texture. I think adding the crumbled chips onto the dough was important for this wreath. Beyond just adding texture, it really added a salty, corn flavor to the dough, which is otherwise a little sweet!

(The “pin it” button was pretty easy to install by going to Pinterest > about > pin it button, then just copy and paste where it tells you to!) My blog is still really new, so at this point I still kind of feel like I’m just talking to myself a lot of times when I write posts! lol. I hope you enjoy the wreaths! 😀 Next, I have to figure out how to follow blogs into a reader of some sort! In the meantime, I’ll just keep visiting pages one at a time! 😀
