Broccoli-Cheese Crescent Squares

Broccoli-Cheese Crescent Squares created by Asha1126

These are so yummy, and easy to make too, a favorite in my house for a long time, they make a great snack or a main meal, served with a side salad. If desired the recipe may be doubled without any problem, it's a good idea to prepare a double batch of these, cause they won't last long!

  • In a medium bowl, combine the cooked rice, broccoli in cheese sauce, 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese, salt, pepper and pepper; mix well.
  • Separate the dough into 4 rectangles.
  • Firmly press perforations to seal.
  • Press each to form a 6x3-inch rectangle.
  • Mound generous 1/3 cup of broccoli mixture evenly onto one end of each dough rectangle.
  • Fold and strech dough over the filling; press the edges to seal well (squares will be very full).
  • With a fork, crimp the edges.
  • Place on a cookie sheet.
  • Brush with melted butter, sprinkle with 2 Tbsp of Parmesan cheese.
  • Bake for 19-24 minutes, or until golden brown.

    These were made for DD who enjoyed them a lot but would have preferred a different (more savory) pastry. We used Pillsbury Crescent Rolls. Also, I used frozen broccoli which I mixed with cheese sauce. I'll definitely be making this again and experimenting with different pastries.

    Followed your recipe right on down just to get their intended taste & wasn't disappointed ~ Absolutely great in every way, right down to the final morsel! Would be satisfying for any meal, & I plan to try them every which way! Thanks so much for posting this keeper! [Tagged, made & reviewed in Zaar Stars Tag Game]

    So much better than hot pockets. Next time I'll try this with breakfast ingredients.

    Good idea! Wonderful flavor and texture and so very easy to make. Followed the recipe exactly, except that I cooked the rice with a little butter (used 1/4 tsp each salt & pepper). Next time I'll probably use brown Minute Rice, just to be a little healthier. I'll definately be making these again and again. If these freeze and reheat well in the microwave, I may never buy hot pockets again. So much potential for variety too. I had some diced ham that I considered throwing in, but then forgot about until I was sealing the last square. And I think there's a lot of frozen vegetables in different sauces now that could be tried in place of the broccoli. Thanks so much for posting this! It's a real keeper.

    I used romano cheese instead of parmesan, and I omitted the butter because I didn't have any, but these came out fantastic! I didn't want one of those instant "hot-pockets" from the freezer isle, and when I made this thingie, I was so glad I didn't bother with them! These freeze well and when heated in a toaster oven, they still taste amazingly fresh! Excellent recipe, Kittencal.
