Easy Snackadium for Super Bowl (or other Football Game) Parties

There are two reasons that I would attend (or throw) a Super Bowl party (or any other football game party).

1.  Friends – It’s always fun to get together with friends.

2.  Food – Any excuse to share food with friends!

So when Pillsbury asked me to create a Snackadium using their Crescent Roll Dough and Pizza Dough, I was in!  You know I love canned dough products.

What’s a snackadium, you ask?  It’s a stadium made of snacks.   [Read more…]

Pear Tart with Cream Cheese Icing (using Crescent Rolls)

Simple is sometimes best and this is surely an easy way to make a pear tart.
I had a couple of pears I needed to use up, a can of crescent rolls, and some leftover cream cheese icing.  The end result was delicious, and I’m not even a big fan of pears!  Of course, you could sub pears for apples, and probably peaches too.  This came together in just a few minutes, which is always a plus around here!
I keep cinnamon sugar mixed together in my pantry, so I did not measure this. I just sprinkled it over the pears until they were covered. This recipe is so simple, you can’t really go wrong.  Add or delete whatever you like!  I also had some leftover cream cheese icing already in the fridge, but you could make a simple icing of confectioner’s sugar and milk too.  It was a quick, yet tasty way to use up fruit that my kids begged me to buy, yet hadn’t eaten!
I think from now on, I’m going to keep an extra can or two of crescent rolls, so if I need an impromptu dessert…I’ll be ready!
  • 1 can of crescent rolls
  • 1 T. softened butter*
  • 1-2 Pears, thinly sliced
  • 2 T. brown sugar
  • cinnamon sugar
  • cream cheese icing (optional)
  • chopped walnuts (optional)
  • *I used Smart Balance in the tub
  1. Lightly spray a baking pan with cooking spray.
  2. Preheat oven to temperature on crescent rolls.
  3. Unroll crescent roll dough onto prepared pan, sealing perforations.
  4. Spread butter over dough.
  5. In a bowl, add pear slices and pour cinnamon sugar over them. Toss to coat.
  6. Spread pear slices evenly over dough.
  7. Sprinkle brown sugar over pears.
  8. Bake in oven until crescent dough is cooked through. (I followed baking time on can)
  9. Once done, drizzle with icing & sprinkle with nuts if desired.

Turtle Crescents

We’re no stranger to crescent rolls here at Eat at Home. They are so convenient to have on hand, and so versatile! There were some great recipes linked up at the last Ingredient Spotlight: Canned Biscuits, Crescent Rolls etc.  Here is another you can add to your arsenal of quick and easy things to do with canned crescent rolls.  And I’ve got one more to share with you next week.

Today’s recipe is a spin off of Tiffany’s Chocolate Croissants.  I’m calling them Turtle Crescents!

They could be made to look a lot prettier with caramel instead of caramel sauce, and maybe a chocolate drizzle over the top too.  The inside however…will keep you coming back for more!  That melted chocolate-y goodness, topped with the sweet caramel and crunchy nuts..pretty tasty.  The best part is, they can be made quick, fast and in a hurry!

Turtle Crescents
  • 1 can Crescent Rolls
  • ¼-1/2 cup Hershey's Baking Melts*

  • caramel (I used caramel sauce, which is a little thin)
  • *or chocolate chips
  1. Preheat oven to temperature on crescent rolls.
  2. Unroll crescent roll dough and divide into triangles.
  3. Add baking melts (or sprinkle with chocolate chips)
  4. Roll dough into crescents
  5. Bake according to package directions.
  6. Once crescent rolls are done, drizzle with caramel and nuts. Enjoy!

Kentucky Hot Brown Bake

kentucky hot brown bake

This is not your traditional Kentucky Hot Brown.  If you’ve ever had the real deal, then you already know that.  If you’ve never had a Hot Brown, here’s a description for you:  Turkey, bacon, tomato on toast, served under so much cheese sauce that you can’t find the sandwich.  Amazing!

This bake is adapted from a recipe I found via Pinterest on Mr. Food for Italian Layer Bake.  I adapted the layers to make it a KY Hot Brown Bake.

This bake is easy to put together, although you do need to allow time for it to bake and set a few minutes before serving.  It’s delicious, with gooey cheese and bacon.  Everyone in the family loved this one.

Here’s what you’ll need:  [Read more…]

Ingredient Spotlight: Canned Biscuits, Crescent Rolls etc.

There’s no doubt about it.  Canned biscuits, crescent rolls, cinnamon rolls, pizza dough are all super convenient.  There are so many ways to use them that go beyond popping open the tube and baking.

One of the first recipes I learned how to cook (at a 4-H meeting) was donuts made with canned biscuits.  Anyone else?  Love those things!

Here are my recipes that use canned doughs of various types:  [Read more…]

Chocolate Croissants

This is the easiest thing ever.  I read the idea on Disboards.com budget forum (great place to hang out if you’re planning a Disney trip).  I’m not sure which member over there mentioned it, but I’m glad they did.  Yum!

I didn’t take an ingredient picture, but I do have a photo showing how to assemble them. [Read more…]
