  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. 
  • In a bowl, mix together cream cheese, mayonnaise, and ketchup. Stir in roast beef, cheddar cheese, and garlic powder. Mix well and set aside.
    4 oz. cream cheese, softened to room temperature, 1 tablespoon mayonnaise, 1 tablespoon ketchup, ¼ cup finely diced roast beef, ¼ cup shredded cheddar cheese, 1/8 teaspoon garlic powder
  • Unroll the crescent roll dough and separate into triangles.
    1 (8 ounce) tube refrigerated crescent roll dough
  • Spread each triangle with cream cheese mixture, leaving a border around the edge. Roll up to form crescent rolls.
  • Place rolls on a large baking sheet. Bake for approximately 12 minutes, or until golden brown.
  • After baking, allow to cool on baking sheet for a few minutes before removing.


  • Prep ahead! You can assemble these stuffed crescent rolls in advance and keep them loosely covered on the baking sheet in the refrigerator until you're ready to bake them.
  • Switch out the roast beef for your favorite type of meat. Anything goes! You can make stuffed crescent rolls with chickencrescent rolls with ham, or crescent rolls with ground beef.
  • Instead of grated cheddar, try using another nicely melting cheese -- such as Swiss, gruyere, fontina, American, mozzarella or provolone. You'll still want to include that softened cream cheese for your base.
  • Instead of plain cream cheese, try a more savory cream cheese flavor like garden vegetable cream cheesechive & onion, or garlic and herb.
  • This stuffed crescent roll recipe works equally well for party appetizers, a warm lunch, or an easy weeknight dinner!
  • Serve with your favorite dipping sauce! Yellow, honey, or Dijon mustard all pair well with roast beef. Mix ketchup and mayo together for a creamy and tangy burger sauce, or serve with a simple sour cream and chive sauce.
  • French Dip Crescents: swap out the cheddar cheese for Swiss cheese and serve with a side of au jus sauce.
  • Philly Cheesesteak Crescent Rolls: mix diced green bell peppers and caramelized onions into the cream cheese mixture for a Philly-style twist on roast beef crescents.
