French Dip Crescent Sandwiches

IMG_8536

Whenever we happen to eat in a diner, I like to get the French Dip sandwich.  Something about the crunchy bread, the warm meat, and the salty au jus…yum!  I have made them a handful of times for the family, but no one seems to eat their whole sandwich, and a lot of the food goes to waste, as after you bake them in the oven, the bread just dries out.  When I came across this recipe, I thought it would be a quick, easy, and tasty take on the traditional French Dip, and we possibly wouldn’t waste too much food.  I changed the recipe up a bit, and we all enjoyed it!  Made for great leftovers the next day too, no dried out bread!  These would make for a great party food as well, easy finger food.

Serves 8 for about $1.75/serving

INGREDIENTS:

2 Package Crescent Rolls – ($4.76)

1 Pound Deli Roast Beef – ($6.53) You could probably get it for much cheaper if you don’t buy it at Costco!

2 Ounces Pepper Jack Cheese, cut into 8 equal pieces

2 Ounces Cheddar Cheese, cut into 8 equal pieces

Au Jus for dipping- we used Johnny’s French Dip Au Jus ($0.62)

DIRECTIONS:

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.  Unroll crescents onto a cookie sheet.

Place a slice of cheese on each crescent; I cut my cheese into triangles to fit easily on the crescents.

Lay a slice of roast beef on cheese, and roll up crescents, starting from the wide end.

Bake for about 12-14 minutes, or until golden brown.  While crescents are baking, make your Au Jus.

ENJOY!
