A Cheesy Twist on Broccoli

What is it about wrapping food in Crescent Rolls that makes it so darn special? I don’t know about you, but I have a can or two in my refrigerator at all times, and almost never make Crescent Dinner Rolls.

If you have picky “no vegetable” eaters in your house, this is one way to get Broccoli on the table without a big fuss. I’m even looking down the line at an Easter Buffet Table. Perfect. Or family game night. Great. It’s packed with veggies, sure. But it’s also dripping with cheese. Most of us are fans of cheese. Especially creamy cream cheese. And better yet, it’s warm. After all, nothin’ says lovin’ like something from the oven.

Cheesy Broccoli Twist
3 cups  frozen Broccoli
8 oz Brown Mushrooms
1/2 cup  small Red Tomatoes
4  Green Onions
2  Eggs
4 oz Cream Cheese, softened
1/2 cup  Italian Cheese Blend
2 cans  refrigerated Crescent Dinner Rolls

Heat oven to 375-degrees. Cover a round baking sheet such as a pizza pan with foil. Set aside. Remove broccoli from the freezer. Place in a colander, thaw under cold running water. Drain well and set aside.

Clean mushrooms, cut into quarters and set aside. Cut tomatoes in half, set aside. Slice green onions, set aside.

Mix cream eggs, cream cheese and Italian Cheese blend together in large bowl until well blended. Stir in the broccoli, mushrooms, tomatoes and green onions. Set aside.

Unroll the dough; separate into 16 triangles. Arrange crescent triangles in 11-inch circle on the prepared baking sheet, with short sides of triangles overlapping in center and points of triangles toward outside.

Note: There should be a 5-inch diameter opening in center of circle. If possible, place a small bowl or bread plate in the center as a guide.

Spoon cheese mixture onto dough near center of circle. Bring outside points of triangles up over filling, then tuck under dough in center of ring to cover filling.

Place Broccoli Twist into the heated oven. Bake for 30 to 35 minutes or until the crust is golden brown and filling is heated through.

Remove from oven. Place on a serving platter. The is best enjoyed warm but can be served at room temperature.
