Recipes for refridgerated crescent rolls?

I have two tubes of crescent rolls in the 'fridge, and they need to be baked up TONIGHT. Instead of making 16 rolls (most of which will probably never get eaten), I would like to incorporate them into a main dish. Any ideas?

  • Heat oven to 375 degrees F.

    In a large skillet sprayed with olive-flavored cooking spray, saute meat, green pepper and onion until meat is browned and vegetables are tender, about 10 minutes. Add tomato sauce, kidney beans and Taco seasoning. Lower heat and simmer until heated through.

    Meanwhile, pat crescent rolls in a 9 x 13-inch cookie sheet sprayed with olive-flavored cooking spray, being sure to seal perforations. Bake 6 to 8 minutes or until lightly browned. Spread hot meat mixture over lightly browned crust. Continue baking an additional 10 minutes. Sprinkle Cheddar cheese over top and bake an additional 5 minutes or until cheese melts. Let set 2 or 3 minutes before serving. Cut into 12 pieces.

    ok this one is the first I found, but a bit more complicated than what I make. I use shreaded cheese, frozen broc, can chicken, can cr mush soup. But you can make your own adjustments.

  • Put one pound of taco meat in bottom of casserole dish. Add corn, rice, beans, tomatoes (any combination- I usually use whatever I have in the house). Top with mexican cheese and then crescent roll sheet. Bake at 350 until crescent rolls are browned!

  • Back when I used to eat them, I would make a taco ring. If you google "Pampered Chef Taco Ring" recipe, it will come up.

  • Here's one of my mom's favorite recipes:

    Crescent Chicken Squares:
    3 oz. cream cheese
    3 Tbsp. melted margarine
    2 c. cut up cooked chicken
    1/4 tsp. salt
    1/8 tsp. pepper
    2 Tbsp. milk
    1 Tbsp. chopped green onion (regular onion can be substituted)
    1 8 ct. can refrigerated crescent rolls
    Italian bread crumbs
    Blend cream cheese & 2 Tbsp. margarine until smooth. Add chicken, salt, pepper, milk and onions. Mix well. Separate the crescent dough into 4 rectangles. Firmly press the diagonal perforations to seal. Spoon 1/2 c. of meat mixture onto the center of each rectangle. Pull the 4 corners of dough to top center and pinch together slightly. Brush tops with remaining 1 Tbsp.melted margarine and sprinkle with bread crumbs. Bake 20 - 25 minutes until golden brown. Makes 4 squares.
