An Abundance of Crescent Rolls

After a week of cooking, I’m often left with a random assortment of leftovers. Instead of throwing away all my excess food, I try to reuse it to make a simple but delicious meal. Enter Pillsbury Crescent rolls.
The best thing about crescent rolls is that virtually everything tastes better when wrapped inside them, meaning that my half bag of cheese, jar of nutella, and random assortment of fruit can all be used.

I decided to make both savory and sweet versions. For savory, I made pizza, cheese, and PB & J. For sweet, I made nutella and strawberries, nutella and bananas, cinnamon sugar, and apple cinnamon. Making these is very easy, just add your ingredients and roll.
After rolling, place your crescent rolls on an ungreased cookie sheet and put them in the oven preheated at 375 degrees.
Leave them in the oven for 8-10 minutes or until they turn golden brown, and you are left with a delicious treat. Enjoy!
Remember, this recipe is open for interpretation. Almost everything in your kitchen can be used. Other ideas include:

  •        Hotdogs
  •        Ham and cheese
  •       Bacon and eggs
  •        Sausage and eggs
  •        Cookie butter
  •        Peanut butter and chocolate
  •        Fresh fruit  

And the list goes on.  Let me know in the comments what other variations you’ve tried!
