Spring holiday dinners frequently mean one entree in our house – the traditional boiled corned beef dinner. We look forward to this meal every year because we splurge on quality corned beef to enjoy for quite a few meals. But what to do with those little corned beef leftovers? You have enjoyed the majority of the corned beef brisket and only have the shreds left? Enter the Corned Beef And Cheese Crescent Rolls.
Nothing fancy but an easy and quick way to use those little its and bits of corned beef after you have eaten and had leftovers of the Corned Beef Boiled Dinner. Then onto the corned beef hash and then… now what?
The most challenging part of the Corned Beef And Cheese Crescent Rolls is opening the can of crescent rolls. Am I the only one who gets the can that won’t pop open? Now that can be a challenge!
Leftover corned beef shredded
Shredded Cheese of your choice (Swiss or Monterey Jack or Mozzarella works well)
One can of Pillsbury Crescent Rolls
- Makes 8 rolls.
- Heat oven to 350 degrees.
- Line baking sheet with parchment paper, aluminum foil or my ongoing favorite parchment sheets.
- Unroll the crescent rolls and separate into individual rolls.
- Sprinkle the shredded corned beef and cheese over the rolls.
- Roll up each roll individually tightly.
- Bake at 350 degrees approximately 12-15 minutes until lightly brown on top.
- As every oven is slightly different I can confidently set the oven timer for 10 minutes and then I begin the check the rolls. For this recipe the baking time does tend to differ depending upon how much filling is in the crescent roll.
The Flexible Corned Beef And Cheese Crescent Rolls
This recipe is flexible as the recipe works for any quantity. Fill each roll or little or as much as your ingredients dictate which is why there are no quantities listed for the ingredients. Who can predict how much corned beef will be leftover? No problem. If you need to supplement the corned beef with more cheese that works too! I used low fat shredded mozzarella cheese for a lighter version which worked great.
