French Dip Crescent Rolls


This dinner is one of my favorites! I was introduced to this meal by a family friend. He made them for a football party and they were delicious! I never asked him for his recipe, I just made up my own version, but I’m pretty sure it’s the same. The ingredients are quite simple.
This is what you make for dinner when you forget to thaw anything out! Just a quick trip to the store and less than $3 a person ( family of 4), you have a yummy dinner!

Here’s what you need:



1/2lb of deli roast beef
4 slices of Swiss cheese, cut in half
1 can of crescent rolls (8ct)
1 packet of Au Ju seasoning
Side dish- we chose curly fries and a salad.
Homemade sweet potato wedges would have been preferred, but those take a lot more time 😦 seriously, I could eat those everyday, forever!

I started my curly fries first, since they bake at a higher temp and for a longer period of time.


It’s pretty simple from here… just unroll each crescent and fill with roast beef and top with half a slice of Swiss.


A half pound of roast beef generously fills each roll, you could possibly stretch it out to fill 16, I’d say 12 would be best, but since each can has 8 that might not work very well. If you’re making them for a party or a larger family, I’d recommend 3 cans of crescents (24) per 1lb of roast beef.

Place them cheese side up on a cookie sheet.

Bake at 375 for about 10-12 minutes, until golden brown.

While baking, prepare your Au Ju per instructions on packet. I add the the extra flour to make it a bit thicker.


Mmm… try not to eat the crusty Mac n cheese stuck to the stove. I know, it’s tempting.

Here’s everything ready to go!


Pair with your side dishes and …
