Great use for pork roast leftovers! Creamy inside, crispy outside. Good with different cheeses besides cheddar. Sometimes I assemble the meat mixture earlier so it is ready for later.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 2 ounces neufachel cream cheese, room temperature
  • 1 tablespoon butter, room temperature
  • 12 teaspoon balsamic vinegar
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 18 teaspoon salt
  • 14 teaspoon black pepper
  • 12 teaspoon italian seasoning
  • 12 cup cheddar cheese, diced
  • 2 tablespoons onions, diced
  • 13 cup roasted red pepper, diced
  • 8 ounces cooked pork, cubed
  • 1 (8 ounce) can refrigerated crescent dinner rolls
  • 1 teaspoon butter, melted
  • 1 tablespoon buttery cracker, one crushed


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. In medium bowl, mix Neufachel and butter until smooth; blend in balsamic, garlic, salt, pepper, Italian seasoning, cheese, onion, roasted pepper, and pork.
  3. Separate dough into four rectangles, spread out a bit, onto ungreased cookie sheet.
  4. Divide pork mixture between rectangles, pull 4 corners of each to center, twist and pinch to seal.
  5. Brush with butter, and dust with crushed cracker.
  6. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes, or until golden brown.
  7. To reheat leftovers, put in 250 degree oven until warmed--about 20 minutes.

Oh my gracious this is good! I used 95% fat free cream cheese, subbed Swiss for the Cheddar as I have a good amount of it currently. Not sure that the cracker crumbs really added anything but they didn't hurt anything either. These have a beautiful richness of taste and are something a bit different (for us). It's easy enough for family week nights but I would also serve it to guests because it's just that good. We loved it!!

5 stars all of the way! I had leftover smoked pork chunks (no sauce) on hand so searched for a recipe. I'm so glad I stumbled across this recipe. The square bundles were so pretty & definitely delicious! The filling sets the tone and then surrounded by flaky pastry. Yum! I substituted 1 teaspoon of sesame seeds for the butter cracker. Thank you for sharing the recipe!
