Cajun Stuffed Crescent Rolls

The Discovery

Who knew a random accident could turn into a beautiful solution? A few days ago I was in my kitchen making stuffed peppers. But the time every green pepper had been stuffed to capacity, I knew they were ready to go.

But then I had left over filling. I hate having left overs of some of the ingredients but not all ingredients.

I didn’t know what to do. So I freaked out for a bit and relied on google. Because of the kind people who respond to Reddit questions, I found an answer to my question.

I found that I can use leftover pepper filling in crescent rolls. After changing some of the ingredients, I came up with a yummy new recipe.

Two different recipes, similar fillings!

This is where I started:

Stuffed Peppers with Brown Rice and Ground Beef.

I was able to use just the ground beef and veggies for the crescent rolls because they were made separately from the rice. In all honesty, I don’t eat green peppers by themselves. Instead of throwing them out when they’re all empty, I use it as additional filling in the crescent rolls.

So I was on to the next one. I can eat these for breakfast, lunch, or part of dinner. They are oh so savory! I wonder what these taste like with a sweet, fruity center. But I guess that’d basically be a toaster strudel.

So I’m SUPER excited to share one of my friend’s take on these Stuffed Crescents. She shared her pic with me the day after I made them on my IG Story. Check her out!

Let me know what you think in the comments below. Feel free to send me a picture too. I love to see pics of food!

  • What a great idea! I love making stuffed peppers, and sometimes I freeze leftover filling for another batch, but this is a great option for when there’s not quite enough for more peppers!

  • This reminds me of our Greek food ‘Gemista’ which literaly means ‘stuffed’. We make stuffed peppers, tomatoes, vine leaves, onion…you name it! So this is really another twist on our traditional food! I guess this is a good solution to when you need something on the go! Thank you for this idea.
