  • 1 (8 ounce) tube refrigerated crescent roll dough
  • 4 oz. cream cheese, softened to room temperature (I used light cream cheese, but any variety will work)
  • 1 tablespoon mayonnaise (I used light mayonnaise, but any will work)
  • 1 tablespoon ketchup
  • ¼ cup finely diced roast beef
  • ¼ cup shredded cheddar cheese (I prefer grated cheddar cheese from a block, since it tends to melt smoother than the pre-shredded cheese in a bag)
  • 1/8 teaspoon garlic powder
  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. 

  2. In a bowl, mix together cream cheese, mayonnaise, and ketchup. Stir in roast beef, cheddar cheese, and garlic powder. Mix well and set aside.

  3. Unroll the crescent roll dough and separate into triangles.

  4. Spread each triangle with cream cheese mixture, leaving a border around the edge. Roll up to form crescent rolls.
  5. Place rolls on a large baking sheet. Bake for approximately 12 minutes, or until golden brown.

  6. After baking, allow to cool on baking sheet for a few minutes before removing.
Recipe Notes


Can I freeze this Crescent Roll recipe?

Yes! To freeze the baked crescent rolls, allow them to cool to room temperature before wrapping individually. Keep the individually-wrapped crescent rolls in a large freezer bag or airtight container in the freezer for up to 3 months.

You can pull 1 or 2 out at a time, as needed!

How to reheat Crescent Rolls:

To reheat frozen crescent rolls in the microwave: warm crescent rolls gently in the microwave (but make sure that they don't get too hot, or they will be too soft). I like to heat them in increments of 30 seconds, checking regularly to make sure that they're warm but not overdone.

To reheat frozen crescent rolls in the oven: You can place frozen crescent rolls straight from the freezer into the oven without thawing first. To do so, preheat the oven to 325 degrees F. Place desired number of frozen crescent rolls on a baking sheet. Warm in the oven until heated through (about 15 minutes). If the rolls start to get too brown on top, simply cover loosely with foil to prevent further browning while the crescent rolls finish baking.
