Windy City Crescent Rolls

Disclaimer: This recipe totally contains some store-bought dough. Gasp! I know, I know…

I started making these rolls a couple of years ago at  Thanksgiving and Christmastime and they’ve been a big hit with Greg’s family, in particular with my father-in-law (hi Bill!). Served warm and gooey and stuffed with feta and spinach, it’s hard to eat just one.

I got the idea for these when the wife of one of our hospice patients made something similar and sent a whole tray of them to one of our team meetings. They were still warm when I got my hands on them and were so good that I decided to try to replicate them. I’m sure that our patient’s wife made the dough from scratch, and you’re welcome to do the same, but sadly making pastry doughs and breads is an area I haven’t really explored yet. Hence the Pillsbury crescent rolls. I know, I KNOW, shame on me.

Anyway, these are simple to make and always a great addition to a meal. Enjoy!

Windy City Crescent Rolls

Serves 6-8

Ingredients

  • 2 tubes Pillsbury (or whatever brand) crescent rolls, 8 ct
  • 4 oz crumbled feta cheese
  • 4 oz shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 3 oz fresh baby spinach (about half of a pre-washed bag), chopped
  • 2 oz black olives, finely diced (*this ingredient is optional)
  • 1 egg white, beaten
  • 1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • dash salt and pepper

Preheat oven to 350. Begin by chopping the spinach and olives and putting them in a large mixing bowl. Add the feta, mozzarella, red pepper flakes and salt and pepper. Toss thoroughly and set bowl aside.

DSC_3490

Unroll the crescent dough and divide into triangles. Using a spoon, place tiny heaps of spinach mixture on the wide part of the dough triangle.

Roll them up! (Thanks to my mother-in-law for this demonstration. Hi Rita!)

DSC_3507

Place on a greased cookie sheet. Before putting them in the oven lightly brush each roll with the egg white. Bake for 15 minutes or until golden brown.

  7. Claire – I have been dreaming about these since I read your recipe!!! Just one Q………….how big should I cut the triangles into??

    Comment by Kyelie on January 24, 2010 at 4:32 am

  8. In my experience the store bought dough (Pillsbury for example) comes with pre-cut triangles!

  15. Hi Claire,
    I want to make these for my boyfriend this weekend. I was wondering if I could use something other then feta? He’s not a fan of it. What side dish would be a good compliment to these? Any help would be greatly appreciated. These sound yummy!!!

    Comment by Kayla on June 10, 2012 at 3:58 pm

  28. These were good-I had way more filling than I needed and saved it

    I am going to add a clove of minced garlic and a 1/4 teaspoon of lemon juice to remaining filling and see if it makes a difference in taste for next batch

    Comment by victoria lynn on June 11, 2012 at 5:44 pm

  29. Just found these on Pinterest earlier this week and made them today for lunch. YUM! Thanks for such an easy recipe!! :)

    Comment by April H on June 13, 2012 at 10:11 am

  30. Saw this post and thought to add, the original dough that the wife used was probably filo dough. The traditional Greek dish is called spanakopita. This is definitely a good “short cut” alternative though! Filo is not easy to work with if you never have before. Anyway, great post :) .

    Comment by Victoria on June 16, 2012 at 9:17 am

  31. Thanks, Victoria! I’m familiar with spanakopita with phyllo dough and that was definitely not what the wife made. Whatever it was she created was pretty much what I’ve shared here, except her dough was from scratch. Thanks for your input though!

    Comment by Claire Bidwell Smith on June 17, 2012 at 1:35 pm

  32. Just found this on Pinterest! Looks so awesome! Love these two-bite size snackies for TGIF, quick lunches or when friends drop over unexpectedly….I’ll bet these would freeze like a dream…(all the more reason to make lots!! lol) Thanks so much!

    Comment by Kat on June 17, 2012 at 3:20 pm

  53. I have another recipe similar to this one w/ chicken & cheddar cheese –it’s good too –so in answer to your question, Linda, instead of feta, try cheddar. karenbomagat.etsy.com

  54. Yum! This sounds great. I might add some very finely diced shallot.

    I’m thinking of having an appetizer party — lots of food but all appetizers — and this recipe would be perfect. Thanks for posting!

    Comment by Jean on August 3, 2012 at 6:44 am

  58. I wanted to thank you for posting this recipe ( I saw it on Pinterest). I made them today and they were delicious! My husband and I entertain a lot so these will be a good addition to my appetizer list. I made them just a little differently from the recipe since I didn’t have any black olives. Instead, I used kalamata olives and finely diced red pepper with the fresh spinach, fresh mozzarella and feta cheese. Thanks again!

    Comment by Amy on August 8, 2012 at 6:22 pm

  59. I made these but instead of olives I added shredded chicken and then sprinkled lightly with mozzarella a few minutes before they were supposed to come out. Came out delicious!!! Thank you saw this on pinterest!

    Comment by Victoria on August 9, 2012 at 12:58 pm

  60. I just found these (Pinterest) can’t wait to try them. My husband says they sound scrumptious. I think I’ll add a little minced onion. I’d also like to try them with a little crumble of cooked sausage.

    Comment by Mary Carol on August 10, 2012 at 9:06 am

  61. O.M.G….This are soooo good! I did add a can of shredded chicken and diced onion & garlic. This has endless combination possibilities. Thanks for posting. I will be making these again soon and often! Both my husband and teenage son loved them!

    Comment by Renee H. on August 11, 2012 at 3:52 pm

  62. Literally just got done making and eating these! They are phenomenal! I made 32 of them and within 10 minutes my family devoured them. Thanks for such an amazing recipe!!! We also put some of the mixture into Scoops tortilla chips and put a little extra cheese on top, threw them in the oven until the cheese melted, I must say it was amazing as well!

    Comment by Lindsey on August 12, 2012 at 6:02 pm

  63. I found this recipe on pinterest and made them tonight. I’m not a cook by any stretch, and my family didn’t believe me when I said I made them. The recipe was super easy. I changed it up a little bit (no olives or red pepper flakes; and I added in some olive oil and garlic powder).

    They were gone within minutes. Everyone loved them!

    Comment by Kate on August 13, 2012 at 6:13 pm

  64. Try sprinkling the top with shredded or grated parmesan as well! mmmmm! My husband and I LOVE cheese- the more the better! I think I will try these with goat cheese instead of feta, and tomatoes instead of olives (we aren’t olive fans…) we have made pizzas with this combo before and it has been AMAZING!

    Comment by Jenn on August 14, 2012 at 6:25 pm

  65. I’m going to have to try this recipe, it sounds delicious.

    Comment by maria on August 18, 2012 at 7:23 am

  66. These are delicious, but a little too salty…They make a great snack or appetizer for a party!! The only thing I will do next time is eliminate the dash of salt…In my opinion, the feta is salty enough :)

    Comment by Diane on August 26, 2012 at 8:48 am

  67. Easy and so so so good! I ate about three right out of the oven! Id like to try the Filo pastry next!

  94. I am hosting a bridal shower this weekend and these look phenomenal!
    We have about 50 guests coming. Is this recipe doable for that many people?
    How many batches should I make?

    I am thinking of doing the freeze before cooking method, so they can be assembled the day before

    Comment by Shannon on October 24, 2012 at 9:58 am

  95. Hi Shannon, I think these would be great for a bridal shower! I would make enough for each person to have two. That way I think some people will not have any, and some people might have three and then you’re all set! If I were you I would just assemble them altogether one or two days before and just keep them refrigerated until it’s time to bake them. I believe the crescent roll containers make either 8 or 10, so you’ll just need to figure out how many to make for 100. Good luck!

  116. Just finished eating these for dinner. I forgot to buy feta this weekend, so I doubled the mozz. Was still delicious, but I’ll try again with feta. Thanks for sharing!

  118. I think I’m going to try these for Superbowl Sunday. Do you have to brush them with egg whites? I’m wondering what will happen if I brush them with butter instead?

  119. Making these today for Super Bowl guests-can’t wait to try them.

  120. I made these for the Superbowl today and they look delish! I live at an elevation of 5200 and the cook time was longer as usual (about 20-21 minutes)

  121. these were a hit tonight for both Super bowl parties we went to.!!!

    Comment by Betty CHRISTOPHER on February 3, 2013 at 8:24 pm

  122. Made these to take to a superbowl party. The ingredients are things I normally keep on hand, so I was able to whip them together pretty quickly. Rolling them is a messy job!! I finally figured out to put the spinach mixture more lengthwise at the wide end than width wise. That way I could fold the corners in around the mixture and make a little pocket. Worked much better. I also had enough mixture for three rolls of crescent dough. Even though they are a little bit of a pain to “stuff” I will DEFINITELY be making these again. Everybody loved them…. Oh, I meant to say, I omitted the olives (nasty little buggers). Thanks for the recipe!

  123. I make something similar….I don’t use the mozzy but I do use the spinach, feta, olives and I add a touch of olive oil and garlic. I use the buttermilk biscuits. You separate each biscuit by the layers in half. They separate easily from the side. Place one half in a muffin tin, top with the mixture, then place the second half on top. Very easy and delish!

  125. I like to make these crescents for an upcoming party. Can they be made ahead of time and warmed up later or does it have to be freshly made?
