Elena Falk's munchable morsels are always a hit at home in Versailles, Ohio. The golden crescent rolls are almost comfort food with their creamy broccoli and cream cheese filling, Elena says.


  • 2 cups water
  • 8 fresh broccoli florets
  • 1 small garlic clove, minced
  • 2 teaspoons butter
  • 2 teaspoons all-purpose flour
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon dried oregano
  • Dash pepper
  • 1/3 cup 2% milk
  • 1/4 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1 tube (4 ounces) refrigerated crescent rolls


  1. In a small saucepan, bring water to a boil. Add broccoli. Cover and cook for 5 minutes; drain.
  2. In another small saucepan, saute garlic in butter. Stir in the flour, salt, oregano and pepper until blended; gradually add milk. Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 2 minutes or until thickened. Stir in cheese until melted.
  3. Separate crescent dough into four triangles; cut each in half, forming two triangles. Press each triangle into an ungreased miniature muffin cup, with corners of dough extending over the edge.
  4. Spoon a rounded teaspoonful of cheese sauce into each cup. Top with a broccoli floret. Fold corners of dough over broccoli (filling will be visible). Bake at 375° for 10-12 minutes or until golden brown. Serve warm.
