Scallion Cream Cheese Crescent Sandwiches - 52 Simple but Next Level Dishes

Pin It Now!

A very simple warm sandwich.  Cream cheese flavored with herbal onion Cream Cheese is baked inside a crescent roll.  Best when served warm, right out of the oven.

These wonderfully delicious yet oh so simple to make sandwiches were served as a lunch for my wife last Friday.  During the season of Lent, she is programmed by the ruler wielding Nuns of her youth to have no meat on Friday.  A delicious way to sacrifice for her faith.

But of course these are a breakfast sandwich (think Bagel and cream cheese just much lower in calories).  They are a snack, an appetizer, even a surprise dinner roll.

And about as easy as it gets!

This simple recipe has been added to my growing list of "52 Simple but Next Level Dishes"!

Kind of an odd title for these posts. But the longer sentence is... Simple recipes that are easy and inexpensive that will take your cooking to the next level... Things like easy pickled items (I always have a jar of Pickled Red Onions for sandwiches in my fridge). Or how about the easiest bread to make in the world... Beer Bread that is tasty on it's own but also makes a wonderful open face pizza style sandwich... With easy to make Tomato Sauce. Or how about Roasting Garlic for a spread on toast points for a unique appetizer. Infusing Oil with Herbs or spices or spicy peppers. Or how about making your own BBQ sauce. Nothing sets you apart as a grill master like setting out a jar of your own specialty BBQ Sauce.

You get the idea. These recipes are very simple, take very little time but will set you apart as a better cook...
