roast beef crescents

I've been posting a lot of roll ups lately. A lot. First the Giant Pigs in a Blanket. Then, the Stromboli Roll Ups. Now, these. What a strange coincidence. I definitely didn't plan it. But, a delicious coincidence none the less.
Link certainly doesn't mind all the roll ups!
These are beyond easy. There only like, 4 steps. The first step is to lay out the crescent.
Step 2 is to lay out a few slices of thinly sliced deli roast beef on top of the crescent.
Next, step number 3, is to add a chunk of cheese. This is mozzarella, but you can use Swiss or provolone... what ever you have around.
Step 4 is to roll it up! And then, repeat and repeat until all the crescents and all the meat are gone.
What a beautiful sight. These go into the oven at 350 degrees for 20 minutes, or until they are brown and perfect.
Ah ha, ah ha. Very nice. These are good as they are, dipped into a little horseradish, or even into au jus. No drippings? No problems- just check out my how to on making Au Jus from Scratch!
Roast Beef Crescents
1 lb deli roast beef, sliced thin
4 oz. mozzarella cheese, cut into 8 chunks
1 package refrigerator crescents

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Lay out a single crescent and top with 2 slices of roast beef. Place a chunk of cheese at the wider end of the crescent and roll up, with the skinnier end out. Repeat until all the crescents are gone. Place on a lightly greased baking pan and place in preheated oven. Bake for 20 minutes, or until crescents are browned and golden. Serve with au jus and enjoy!
