Recipe: Fun With Crescents

Sometimes when I get home - I'm just beat - so I try and have a few easy to put together dinners just waiting- in case I'm having one of those nights. My husband also likes really simple food - so on those nights - he's usually excited for dinner (rather than recipe experimentation night). 

So - we had Fun with Crescent Rolls night! 

We tried a couple different things - mainly because 8 of one kind is a bit much - so first up Pizza Pocket Crescents. It's easy - I really don't even need to tell you what I'm doing. I bet you can figure it out.

Those are cheese sticks cut in half. Super simple. 

Roll. Oven. Done. 

We mixed it up by doing half pizza and half hot dogs. The hot dogs are just as complex. ;-) 

Hey - it's simple - but good! In 15 minutes - dinner is on the table. Have a little salad first and you're good to go. 

These take a couple minutes longer to bake than plain crescents and I think the hot dogs could have used a minute or two more - just so they could plump up a little more - but they were fine.

And there you have it - dinner is served! It's not fancy - but hey - dinner doesn't always need to be fancy - sometimes it just needs to be on the table in 15 minutes.
