Pillsbury Crescent Roll Recipes

I am in LOVE with Pillsbury Crescent Rolls. That’s not a paid endorsement – we just really, really love them in our house. I make them as rolls for dinner, wrap them with turkey and cheese for lunches (that’s the only way Jordan will eat turkey and cheese, BTW). I also love making breakfast foods with them. They’re so versatile, and the end result is a portable snack that’s perfect for hectic mornings and on the go.

If you’re craving something sweet for breakfast, this list has you covered. Danish, strudel, cinnamon rolls, and so much more are on this list with flavors from peanut butter to chocolate to lemon to berry and everything in between.

Looking for a savory breakfast? Look no further; this list has recipes for quiche and egg casserole, sausage and pizza using Pillsbury Crescent rolls!

And last but not least, dessert! Use Pillsbury Crescent Rolls to make s’mores or crisps, pie or baklava and so many more dessert recipes!

  1. A while back I used to make a recipe with the crescent rolls, cream cheese and sugar. Cant find thee recipe. Could you guide me to recipes with these ingredients (cinnamon I think too…)
