Crab & Cream Cheese Filled Crescent Rolls

Crab and cheese Crescent Rolls are an excellent easy appetizer that's also kinda’ fancy at an equivalent time. So elegant, so tasty, and oh, so simple that you simply can whip these up in but half-hour from start to finish!

Similar in flavor to crab dip,  this tender and flakey appetizer takes it up a notch wrapping the crab and cheese mixture inside a croissant. Serve them hot alongside your other favorite appetizers!

Unlike some crab filled appetizers that use wonton wrappers and are deep fried, these Crab and cheese Crescents use a more delicate crescent dough and are baked, supplying you with a more tender and flaky appetizer, instead of a crispy one.

Garnish with fresh green onions and serve with duck sauce, soy sauce, teriyaki sauce or sriracha for dipping!

If making beforehand, keep the filling chilled until you're able to assemble. If you cooking them beforehand, allow to chill, mist with cold water and reheat during a kitchen appliance or microwave and that they will look and taste freshly made!
