Cresent Rolls are good for SO many Things.

One of the things I like to do when shopping is stock up on Buy One Get One Free offers. This week, Pillsbury Crescent Rolls were the choice of the week.

Ideas to spice up your Crescent rolls:

Pizza Rolls
1/2 cup of your favorite red sauce
1/2 cup mozzarella cheese
Optional: Mix in some Parmesano cheese as well.

So this isn't an original idea by any standards. However, it's easy enough to make for a quick snack for hungry college students or a kids sleepover. Be careful not to add too much sauce to the mixture, it WILL leak out and make cleaning a pain (so spray with pam)

Pigs In a Blanket!!!
Favorite Mini Weiners (haha...) or sausages.

This is really a classic example. Roll the hotdog (I prefer sausage) in the roll. These would go great with an egg breakfast or a kids sleepover party.

Jelly Belly

1/2 cup favorite jelly.

This is something my mom use to do in the mornings when we didn't have time for a big breakfast. Take your favorite jelly (Grape, Strawberry, Apricot, Red Current, Pumpkin, etc...) and brush the jelly on the rolls before you roll them. This recipe is a bit messy to clean up so make sure to spray with Pam.

Nutella Rolls.
1/2 Cup Nutella.
Favorite Fruits to eat with (Strawberries, Raspberries, Bananas)

This is the only recipe that you actually bake the rolls as normal. Once they are done, cut them in half (like a sandwich) and spread the nutella. Honestly, if You haven't tried Nutella it's an amazing indulgence.

Mexican Delights

chedder cheese
Diced Jalopenos

The Beauty of all of these is it only takes 10-13 minutes. There is one pan to clean up. And Most of these ingredients are already in your pantry. Most importantly, it's very inexpensive and can be substituted for a meal.

This post is beyond awesome! I will have to try some of these. How can we make a cinnamon roll type crescent roll creation?

No idea. Normally I would by the cinnamon rolls, but it's something worth exploring :)

If I may suggest:

Is close if you want to go by the book.

However, It would seem that you could open them up, slap the cinnamon stuff in, cover, bake, and ice.
