Swiss & Beef Crescent Ring

Total Time

This was one of my dh's favourite dishes, when we were first married, it was a great way to use up leftover roast beef with Pillsbury crescents dough. It's tasty, quick and easy to make and best of all it looks like it took awhile to make. Only you need to know how easy this was.

We all really liked this dish tonight. I made this pretty much as directed - I only used orange peppers instead of red and yellow peppers, skipped the mushrooms and used whole wheat rolls. After cooking, the dough on the bottom was quite raw but I think that's because I used a pizza stone and they take a while to heat up. I would use a cookie sheet next time. This would be great with pretty much any filling! Made for Went To The Market tag game. Thanks Baby Kato! :)

Hub wants this again! I pretty much made as posted, did halve the salt, and omitted the mustard as we are not too keen on it. Think the reduced salt for us was perfect. IMO, there is too much filling, I threw away about 1 cup b/c I just could not get it in. Next time for us, I would reduce the filling by 25%. Am confused about AZ's pic because inside my cookbook a different one shows up which I think is the correct pic, and at the recipe itself I see sometimes a meat filling in a pie dish being covered with a pastry with a rolling pin and then that pic will disappear and the other correct pic with blue background shows up--weird to say the least.

I really enjoyed this (DH said wouldhave been better w/out the peppers). I didn't have leftover meat so used some beef stew meat I had in the freezer and cooked it with the mushrooms, some garlic and seasoning in a 300 degree oven for 2 hrs the day before. When ready to make I just added the mushrooms and diced the meat. Will be making this again!! Made for ZWT-7~THE HOT PINK LADIES.
