Cheese Stuffed Crescent Rolls – Healthy Super Bowl Snack

When the smell of melting cheese inside a steaming pastry filling up the kitchen just pop open a bottle and enjoy the game!

Cheese-stuffed-crescent-roll-13-SunCakeMomChoosing between cheese scones and crescent rolls is a really a taxing decision. Which one should be brought to a deserted island?  Luckily we can’t go wrong with any of it but still having both at the same time is the best solution.

To be honest these rolls are filled with cheese so they just couldn’t survive an island trip. They hardly survive the trip to the dinning table but that’s for a different reason. It doesn’t matter how much is baked, surely nothing will be left on the plate by the end of the day. Especially not when there is a game going on TV. It’s worth to mention that this probably isn’t the healthiest super bowl recipe ever but definitely one of the tastiest. Especially if there is a bottle of beer to wash it down.Cheese-stuffed-crescent-roll-11-SunCakeMom

  2. Whilst we are waiting, measure and put the flour, butter, yogurt and eggs  in a large bowl. When it’s ready, pour in yeast mixture too. Make the dough.Cheese-stuffed-crescent-rolls-process-3-SunCakeMom
  3. After we finished with kneading it, we don’t need to wait for it to raise.Cheese-stuffed-crescent-rolls-process-5-SunCakeMom
  4. Divide the dough into 4 balls, set them somewhere warm cover 3 and we can start working with the fourth straight away.Cheese-stuffed-crescent-rolls-process
  5. Put the ball in the middle of the desk and roll it flat into a shape of a circle.
  6. Cut it into 8 equal pieces like a pizza.Cheese-stuffed-crescent-rolls-process-10-SunCakeMom
  7. Put cheese on top each piece then roll them up and bend them into a crescent shape. Then put them on the tray.Cheese-stuffed-crescent-rolls-process-11-SunCakeMom
  8. Use the egg yolk to brush it on top of the rolls and sprinkle some salt on it. Now it’s ready to pop it into the preheated 356°F / 180°C oven for half an hour.Cheese-stuffed-crescent-rolls-process-12-SunCakeMom
