These Roast Beef and Cheddar Crescent Roll-Ups are a true pantry meal!
A couple of months ago, we were fortunate enough to get away for a kid-free weekend. Keith and I enjoyed shopping and eating in restaurants, all without interruption from our sweet little ones! By the time we picked up the kids from my parents’ house and returned home on Sunday evening, however, I didn’t have the time or the energy to head to the grocery store. That’s when I came up with this little recipe.
I rummaged through my refrigerator and found all of these ingredients just waiting to be used. The roll-ups were the perfect accompaniment to a can of soup (also from the pantry) – a perfect last-minute meal!
While they are great with soup, these would also be nice appetizers or a great light lunch paired with some chips and fruit. If you don’t have roast beef on hand, just substitute ham or turkey. You can also switch the cheese and use up some mozzarella or whatever else is hiding in your refrigerator. The options are endless!
