Cheesy Turkey Pesto Rolls

Cheesy Turkey Pesto Rolls
I can't believe I did it. This is something I practically never do. I...I used crescent rolls in a recipe. And I didn't make the crescent roll dough from scratch. This is not a thing I usually do but I know we don't always have time and...I wanted to make these. So I bit the bullet and used crescent roll dough. I hope we're all ok with this? Everything in moderation, am I right?

I feel like I've been pretty firmly in the old-for-my-age camp in a lot of ways for awhile. You know, I'd rather sit and watch Netflix or a movie than go out, I like to cook/bake (obviously), Michael and I bicker like an old married couple...etc. One of the few things that kept me from being too far over the edge is that I've never cared much for HGTV...and I don't knit. Well...now that I'm starting to get into the idea of house hunting...I am sorta loving HGTV all of a sudden.

...but so far I still don't knit.

But whether you're young-at-heart or old-for-your-age...or anywhere in between, you're gonna be all about these rolls! They're crazy easy to throw together and they make an awesome lunch or snack or appetizer or just grab-and-go sustenance! They're cheesy and pesto-y (so make sure to use a pesto you love!) and there's turkey so yay protein! They're also super customizable so feel free to play around with the fillings, and you can totally make them vegetarian (just...don't add any meat--ta da!)

Cheesy Turkey Pesto Rolls
Makes 9 rolls.
Ingredients:
  • 1 tube Pillsbury crescent rolls
  • 1/4 cup pesto (I recommend this recipe
  • 3/4 lb. thin-sliced deli turkey
  • 1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese + more for topping
Preparation:
  • Preheat oven to 350F degrees and grease a 9"x13" baking dish with nonstick cooking spray.
  • On a floured surface, roll out the crescent dough and press together seams to keep them from splitting--roll out into an approximately 13"x18" rectangle.
  • Spread the dough evenly with pesto and then sprinkle with mozzarella. Top evenly with the slices of turkey.
  • From the longer side of the rectangle, roll the dough up tightly, pinch the ends together, and place with the seam down. Cut into 9 equal pieces.
  • Place the roll-ups face up in the prepared baking dish. Sprinkle with extra mozzarella.
  • Bake for 25-35 minutes until lightly browned. Let cool and serve!
  • Store leftovers in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 5 days.
