Contest-Winning Beef Stuffed Crescents Recipe

Publisher Photo
My neighbor makes these Beef-Stuffed Crescents using jalapenos instead of green chilis and calls them "rattlesnake bites!" I love that this recipe is so easy and has so few ingredients. I've made it for potlucks and family gatherings…and never have any leftovers. —Jennifer Bumgarner, Topeka, Kansas

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Sep. 29, 2014

"Made these exactly to the recipe the first time, they were good, but a little bland. The next time I added a few red pepper flakes, some frozen mixed vegetables, onion & garlic to the meat. Delish!! My whole family loved them and they were a complete meal-to-go with protein, vegetables and bread. Even better as left-overs. A little messy to put together, but well worth the effort"

"I really like this recipe. I used home made puff pastry since I did not have any crescent rolls, and that worked great. I took these appetizers to a gathering of friends and they loved them."

"I use hot italian sausage when I make these instead of beef and a tablespoon of sugar. AWESOME! Always a pleaser."

MY REVIEW

"I have made this recipe several times and my family loves it. The first few times I made it exactly as called for. I like to experiment, so I've tried a few variations. My oldest son's favorite variation I cook a chopped onion with the beef and add some garlic powder. My youngest son likes it when I make it 1/2 pound of beef and a 1/2 pound of spicy sausage and a little onion. My husband likes all variations. Ha! It is a great recipe and is very versatile. In fact, this will probably be what we have for supper because it really does go together fairly fast. Happy cooking!"
