Beef and Cheddar Spirals


Cute little sandwich bites.  Great for an appetizer or snack.


I paired them with a salad and fruit for a light, summer meal.


Beef and Cheddar Spirals

1 can crescent dinner rolls
4 thin slices of roast beef
4 t Dijon mustard
1 c shredded cheddar cheese
1 T sesame seeds

Unroll dough into 4 long rectangles.  Press seams to seal.
Layer with mustard, beef and cheese.  Start with the short side
and roll so you have 4 rolls.  Press seams closed and slice each roll
into 4 spirals, creating 16 little sandwiches.  Put on parchment-lined
cookie sheet and sprinkle with sesame seeds.
Bake 15-20 minutes at 375 until golden.
Can refrigerate 2 hours before baking.

These are also good using ham and Swiss, too!

I double the meat to make them a bit heartier, but
for an appetizer I would leave as is.

I'm hooking up with The Weekend Potluck!

One funny thing...I never buy crescent rolls in a can!  I've made these twice in the last month, and both times I couldn't get the can open! LOL!  I had trouble peeling off the paper, kind of holding it away from me in fear that the can would pop open and scare me.  Then when I got the paper off, I couldn't get it to pop open!  I'm glad I was alone in the kitchen as I'm sure it was a comical sight. :)  Geesh!

    2. Of course you can eat them! You'd probably want the ham and swiss ones, though, wouldn't you?

    1. It was quite funny, let me tell you! Seems like I remember them being easy when I was a kid and we bought them a lot. They would pop open before you were ready! I couldn't get the paper to come off...only in tiny shreds. Oh dear.

  4. They look yummy. I like the Dijon mustard in there. The fruit and salad on your plate look like they'd go down pretty easily too! Love the bright, fresh colors of summer fruits and veggies!

    1. We've eaten fruit and salad with almost every meal this summer. Not only do we love it, but it's so quick and easy to prepare!

    2. I have some roast beef in the fridge too but we've been eating it hot with melted cheddar and meunster cheeses on a toasted Crustini Buns with bbq sauce. I'll have to try it in the pinwheels.

    3. that sounds delicious, too. I've been making similar combinations on pizza crust for something different. The nice thing about those recipes is that you can change up the condiment, meat and cheese...kind of a nice 'clean out the leftovers' dish. :)

    5. similar to crescent dinner rolls.....not as good as homemade but very popular, quick and easy.

    6. Yes I love these but I will have to make the dough!

    7. Well, that wouldn't be as quick and easy, now, would it! You should write the Pillsbury Co. and request they send them to Chile. They've been around since the 1970's I'm guessing. It's time they shared! ha.

  9. Love these savoury buns. Perfect for the breakfast.

  11. All looks very tempting. The fresh fruit and feta crumbles came out very nicely, so vibrant on the screen. The spirals look good, I'd have to alter the recipe though, can't eat the sesame seeds. Other than that though, even on a diet, as long as I don't go over board, probably a pretty nice meal and not counterproductive either, always looking for things like that, because WW meals gets a little old after a while lol Thanks

    1. The sesame seeds are just for looks, anyway, so that's no problem..just leave them off! And the crescent rolls come in reduced fat, which is what I used. You are really sticking to your diet...I'm very impressed! Do you mind me asking how many pounds you've lost? I've heard great things about WW, too, and their new program.

  12. Even if I tried really hard, concentrated like never bfore, I'm sure I'd still mess them up. The truth is I can't cook. There's no hope of there even being a blue chef. You have a great weekend, Betsy!

  13. Yeah Pat and the cat could chow down on those
    Instead of Pat's toes
    That would be the cat
    And of course not Pat haha

    1. Cat, if Pat ever chews his own toes
      that would surely cause woes
      but I would want to see a picture, too
      so grab his camera and snap a photo or two!
      All cats here would love these, too
      and wrap their tails around my legs while I'm bake a few.
      Can be hard to walk without being tripped
      when 8 cats are there, wanting a lick!
      lol.

  14. Hi Betsy,

    We have a similiar recipe where you take cooked crumbled bacon pieces, thinly sliced green onions and cheddar cheese and put it on them. This can be an appetizer, or served with breakfast or soup. I think yours would be very easy to make. I am thinking that there are a lot of possible combinations that could be used here depending what you were serving it with. I am thinking that salmon could be paired up with something and they would be pretty good.

    Anyway I am getting better, slowly but surely, both physically and dealing with the loss. But I had been having so many problems with my computer freezing up while in Mozilla Firefox that it could take a couple hours to write a comment if it even let me. I have been runnng tests trying to figure out what was wrong and today it seems to be a lot better. I hate when there is something wrong with these dang computers. With all that I have been going through it was getting to be too much to handle at times. Thank goodness it is better today. I have been able to read sometimes so I have been keeping up.

    God bless

    1. Yes, I agree...the possibilities are endless! Your first idea sounds great, too! And I'm glad to hear you are getting better.

      Have you tried Google Chrome? I ditched IE and Firefox for Chrome...all my troubles left.

  22. You should take photos for your own cookbook! This looks so delicious. I smiled with the crescent roll story. I always "whop" it on the edge of the counter and from this habit came the family comment, "Mom, are we having whopping biscuits tonight?" :)
