These French Dip Crescent Rolls are perfect for a light lunch or appetizer!
Kids also love them, which is a huge bonus. With kids about to be out of school for the summer I’m always looking for something WW friendly I can feed them and myself.
Another bonus is they are extremely easy to make.
What you need to make French Dip Crescent Rolls:
- Pillsbury reduced fat crescent rolls
- Roast beef lunch meat (I used 6 ounces of Boar’s Head roast beef)
- Sargento light string cheese
- Optional: Au Jus (I bought a packet of McCormick’s Au Jus)
There are a few things I did to lighten up this recipe. The first thing was to buy the reduced fat crescent rolls. They are 3 points each while the original crescent rolls are 4 points each.
I used 6 ounces of Boar’s Head roast beef which I divided into 8. It was approximately 1.3 ounces for each crescent roll.
The most accurate way to do evenly divide the roast beef is to use a food scale.
It may not seem like a lot of lunch meat but it really is the perfect amount for the crescent rolls.
For the string cheese I used Sargento light string cheese. It’s 3 points for two pieces of string cheese. I cut both pieces of string cheese in half, then cut each piece in half lengthwise.
This gave me 8 pieces of string cheese that were the perfect size for the crescent rolls.
Each crescent roll is only 4 points each with blue, green and purple. I didn’t include the points for the Au Jus because it’s optional and won’t add much as far as points.
These took 10 minutes (at the most) to prepare, then 12 minutes to bake. They’re super easy to make and delicious!
Yield: 8 (4 points each for blue, green and purple)
- 1 tube reduced fat crescent rolls
- 6 ounces roast beef lunch meat (I used Boar's Head)
- 2 pieces Sargento light string cheese
- Optional: Au Jus (I used a packet of McCormick Au Jus mix)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
Unroll the crescent roll dough on a baking sheet. Tear apart dough on the perforated lines making 8 pieces.
Cut the string cheese in half, then cut each piece in half lengthwise making 8 pieces of cheese. Divide the roast beef into 8.
Lay the roast beef and cheese at the wide end of the crescent roll then roll up. Repeat until all 8 are made.
Bake 9-12 minutes or until the crescent rolls are golden and cooked through.
If using Au Jus make that while the crescent rolls are baking.
