Grilled steak, blue cheese and bacon make my crescents some of the heartiest, most satisfying starters you'll ever eat. I roll up the filling in wedges of refrigerated pie pastry. —Kelly Williams, Forked River, New Jersey
Featured In: 25 Christmas Potluck Appetizers for 12 or More
- 1 tablespoon butter, softened
- 1 teaspoon coarsely ground pepper
- 1/2 teaspoon seasoned salt
- 1 beef ribeye steak (12 ounces)
- 2/3 cup finely chopped walnuts
- 1/3 cup crumbled blue cheese
- 1 tablespoon minced fresh parsley
- 1/4 teaspoon pepper
- 1 sheet refrigerated pie pastry
- 4 thick-sliced bacon strips, cooked and crumbled
- 1 green onion, thinly sliced
- 1 tablespoon 2% milk
- 2 teaspoons grated Parmesan cheese
- In a small bowl, combine the butter, coarse pepper and seasoned salt. Rub over each side of steak.
- Grill, uncovered, over medium heat or broil 4-in. from heat for 5-7 minutes on each side or until meat reaches desired doneness (for medium-rare, a thermometer should read 145°; medium, 160°; well-done, 170°). Transfer to a cutting board; cover and let stand for 5 minutes. Cut into 12 slices.
- Meanwhile, in a small bowl, combine the walnuts, blue cheese, parsley and pepper. On a lightly floured surface, roll dough into a 12-in. circle. Spread with walnut mixture; cut into 12 wedges.
- Top each wedge with a steak slice, bacon and onion. Roll up wedges from the wide ends and place point side down 2 in. apart on a greased baking sheet. Curve ends to form crescents. Brush with milk; sprinkle with Parmesan cheese.
- Bake, uncovered, at 425° for 14-16 minutes or until golden brown. Serve immediately. Yield: 1 dozen.
