French Dip Crescents

January 13, 2014 3 Comments

Sorry, I’ve been really slacking on my blog here. It’s been a busy week with weather, filling in and sickness. So unfortunately, I didn’t try any new meals for the past couple of weeks. So I didn’t have much to share here…

Until now! I feel like my little family has finally gotten back into our normal routines so I have some new meals to share with you. Here’s one of the first ones I’ve tried this new year!

Conclusion: Good but I prefer the traditional French Dip sandwich.

I found out my husband loves crescent rolls. We’ve been together for over 7 years now and I didn’t know this little fact about him. But when he saw me making these, he was very excited to try them. You will definitely only be able to roll up one slice of roast beef in the crescent. Two slices seem to make them a bit too thick and hard to seal up. Also cut the cheese in half, it fits better. I did have a few issues with them though. The bottom of the crescent turned out pretty soggy due to the juices from the beef. My husband suggested using a broiler pan instead. I’ll have to give that a try and see if it works. I definitely prefer my bread more crisp than how the crescents turned out. I also prefer a lot more roast beef with my French Dip. The Au jus sauce wasn’t bad either, just be sure to add more garlic powder (if you’re a fan). But, it was a nice simple meal and my husband loved it :-)

    I want to try them…I wonder how a person could remedy the soggy bottom??? Maybe a baking stone?

    This does sound tasty. I have my own recipe for French Dip, this sounds like a good “2nd round” to use the left overs. I really enjoy your blog!
