Jalapeno Popper Crescent Roll Ring

Author: Colleen Kennedy

Ingredients

  • 12 oz cream cheese
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese blend
  • 4 jalapeno’s chopped (with or without seeds & stems, see note)
  • ¼ cup scallions thinly sliced
  • Salt & pepper
  • 2 packages Pillsbury Original Crescent Rolls

Instructions

  • In a mixing bowl, combine the cream cheese, shredded cheese, jalapenos, scallions and salt & pepper. Mix until fully blended.
  • Open one crescent roll can, carefully separate the roll from the tube into 2 halves.
  • Unroll one half, you will then break that into two rectangular pieces and place them on the baking sheet, you want to create a plus sign on the sheet, leaving the center with an open hole.
  • Open the second can and repeat the process, filling in the open areas yet still leaving an open center.
  • Gently pat down where the dough is perforated to seal and pat down dough pieces to one another just a bit.
  • Scrape the filling onto the crescent roll dough in a circle (as pictured).
  • Fold the edges up around the filling into the middle forming a ring, leaving a hole in the center.
  • Bake in a preheated 375 degree oven for 20-25 minutes or until crust is golden brown.
  • Remove, allow it to cool for 5-10 minutes and then cut into slices and enjoy!

Notes

If you like things spicy leave either all of the seeds and stems or some of the seeds and stems in the mixture. If you want it milder, remove seeds and stems by first halving each jalapeno and then using a small spoon to scrape out the seeds and stems before chopping. Jalapeno’s vary in heat, you may want to taste yours to gauge how hot or mild they are.
You can also use a food processor, first pulse the jalapenos, then drop in the remaining ingredients and pulse just until incorporated.
If you want to add some meat to your Jalapeno Popper Crescent Roll Ring, add in either 1 cup of cooked and crumbled bacon or 1 cup of cooked loose sausage (blotted) to your filling mixture.
