Helpful Tips For Recipe

  • Don’t overstuff the filling of the crescent rolls or they will leak out too much.
  • Make sure to do a little of each item in a long strip as it will make sure each bite has the flavors of each item.
  • Make as many or as few of these crescent rolls as you would like.
  • The egg wash is optional but it will help give the top of the crescent rolls a golden color.

Storing Thanksgiving Leftovers

You can store any of these crescent rolls in the fridge once they cool down a bit. Place in an airtight container and store for 2-3 days in the fridge.

To reheat you can warm up in the microwave, oven, or even the air fryer. Reheat until they are warmed all the way through.

Are Crescent Rolls the Same as Croissants?

Croissants are more of a puffy pastry texture and crescent rolls are more of a soft biscuit-bread style texture.

You will find they get mixed up by their name, but the flavors are very different.

Can I use Ham Instead of Turkey?

Yes, you can use ham in replace of turkey. Or you can swap out the meat and do meatless.

Feel free to pick and choose what you stuff inside the crescent rolls.

Do Crescent Rolls Expand as They Cook?

Yes, they do expand as they are baked or air fried. You will find you need to leave space between each of the crescent rolls.

If the crescent rolls touch you will find that where rolls touch it will take longer to cook the dough.

How to Know When These Crescent Rolls are Done?

When the crescent rolls are golden brown and the dough is fluffy and not raw is when these are done. All the items inside the crescent rolls are fully cooked.

However, you can cut into one of the rolls to check the dough. And you can also stick a toothpick in and push to the side slightly to see the texture of the dough.
