The other day Reece was talking to me about what he wanted to be when he grew up.  The conversation went something like this:

Reece: I know what I want to be when I grow up!

Me: Oh yeah?  What’s that?

Reece: I want to be an engineer.  But not like an engineer like you and daddy.  I want to be a real engineer – a TRAIN engineer.

Me: Wow!  That would be cool!

Reece: Yeah.  And I wouldn’t need to learn that much because I already know A LOT about trains.  I mean, I’ve watched the Polar Express like at least 100 times.

Me:  That’s true….

As much as I think I know about cooking, I’m always looking for new, creative, delicious, and FAST dinner options for our family.  Sure, I’m a stay-at-home mom BUT I also work from home which can get a tad tricky from time to time.  No matter how much time I think I have there never seems to be enough when it comes to dinner.

Chris gets home between 5:30 and 5:45 ever night.  Soccer practice starts at 6.  And it’s not next door.

Anyone else doing the math here?

Yep.  Not only do we need fast meals, we need to be able to eat them quickly and sometimes, eat them on the run :)

I am officially a super-fan of this recipe and plan on making as many variations as my creativity allows for in the future.  These rolls were gobbled up SO fast and I didn’t hear any complaints.  That’s rare.

I made a honey-dijon sauce for the adults that also doubled as a quick salad dressing.  YUM.  I roasted up a couple chicken breasts real quick but you could easily substitute Rotisserie Chicken and it would be even easier.  The trick is making sure you slice the chicken thinly enough that it’s nice and flexible and rolls well.  But not too thin because then I run the the risk of my husband thinking I’m trying to feed him a vegetarian meal…and that is strictly forbidden ;)

Hands off ladies!  He’s all mine…

You make these just like cinnamon rolls using Pillsbury Crescent Rolls for the base.  I layered on cheese, ham, and chicken and then rolled it up.  Cut ‘em, bake ‘em, eat ‘em!  Dinner is served!

  3. These look delicious, Trish! Such a great idea! I love the conversation between you and Reece – so cute!

  4. SUCH a good idea – we don’t have much time for weeknight dinners either, so I’m always on the lookout for meal ideas like this. LOVE crescent rolls!

  5. I’m so making these…or a version (not huge into Swiss cheese…I’m weird). For some reason I have a few packs of crescent rolls in the refrigerator and haven’t decided what to do with them. I love this idea. Thanks!

  6. These look delicious….perfect for lunch! I’m constantly trying to come up with new lunch ideas for my son– these will be perfect!

  7. YUM!!! I just love all the things you can roll up into crescent rolls :-) And I am laughing at your comment about your hubby thinking you were trying to feed him vegetarian meals.

  8. Awesome idea so serve at the party! Definitely have to remember this :)

  9. So fabulous, Trish! I love anything wrapped in a crescent roll!

  10. Oh my goodness! I might have to make this tonight for dinner! These look delicious!!

  11. Yum! I love crescent rolls with just about anything and love that these could easily be eaten on the go!

  12. Love this idea Trish! Can’t wait to try this!

  13. This is such a great idea. I’m thinking these would be great to carry to a sick neighbor or friend. I’m always making cakes to carry to wakes and this could be a nice addition to that also. Sorry not meaning to bring anyone down just always trying to come up with things I can share with others. Thank you :)

  14. I made these tonight and they were fantastic! All 3 of my picky eaters gobbled them up!

  15. Made these for dinner. They were fantastic. Mine did not come out as pretty as yours though. Next time I think I will roll, cook, then cut.

  16. Sounds great but can u please tell me what crescent rolls are and were can I buy them ?

  17. These sound great! Did you know they make seamless crescent roll dough sheets? They make recipes like this even a little bit easier. :)

  18. These look so yummy! I’ll be making them for sure.
    I wonder how well they would freeze?

  19. I want to ask about the bread that is used. I am not from America and don’t have access to the product you are using. Is there any other way to make these (make the bread yourself) or is it just like regular dough? They look super yummy, really wanna try these :)

  20. Lisa Smart says:

    My daughter LOVES Cordon Bleu. Can’t wait to try this version for her…Will probably do a alfredo sauce to pour over the top…

  21. So I have never made cinnamon rolls using cresent. When you say in your instructions to roll it like a cinnamon roll which side are you suppose to roll from. One of the ends or the sides? I’m making them now and was looking at your pics and I think if did them wrong. I don’t know it it matters or not. But I just thought it would have been useful info if it does. :) So I guess we will see how these puppies turn out. I think they will be a hot mess since they seem more open then yours. The cheese will probably be all over the place rarer than in the roll itself. Haha. Oh well, it all goes down the same way right?

    • So these turned out great!! I don’t think it matters which end or side you roll. This is a great idea and will definitely be making these scrumptious morsels again. Thanks! :)

  22. I just found what I’m going to bring to my work Christmas party tomorrow night. Gonna triple the recipe so there is plenty.

  23. Tamie Cawley says:

    I’m thankful for joining Pillsbury.com. I have found several recipes I’m sure will be a hit. Thank you for sharing. After a while pigs in the blanket needs a twist. Now my family sure will enjoy these.

  24. Kati Hagerty says:

    Do y think these could be done as a freezer meal?

  25. Hi Trish,

    l made this recipe today for Sunday brunch for my family. They were delicious! l didn’t leave space between my pinwheels to allow them to expand, rise and bake. Because l didn’t do this, they took much longer to bake and were a little doughy inside. The next time l make them (…and there will definitely be a next time) l will know better. Learn from my mistakes people :-)

  26. Your conversation with Reece just got me thinking – I’ve never actually been on a “real” train. A bazillion subways, but that’s just not the same. By the time I finally do, I’ll have to ask who the engineer is… could be Reece. ;) Funny, I pinned a post last night and was just coming back to read some and noticed that we both posted Chicken Cordon Bleu dishes. Although I poached the chicken for mine, I also pointed out one of my favorite “cheat” … using a rotisserie chicken. Weird that they’re usually cheaper than buying and cooking your own too.

  31. This is a wonderful recipe! Husband and I loved it!! I made a couple of changes that just fit our tastes. I used the Swiss cheese and used thick slices of ham from the deli counter, Boars Head rosemary and thyme ham. Then added pickle spears. My dad always did that to his cordon bleu and so I do it. Thanks for the recipe. It is delish!! Definitely going into the weekly rotation. :)

  32. wow looks so delicious, I’ll try this for dinner. Thanks

  33. Chris Greek says:

    Hubby and I came across this recipe a few days ago and I knew we had to try it. Of course, living in an isolated town in the arctic means having to change things up a bit, especially as there were no crecent rolls in town! No worries – we whipped up a quick pie crust and made tarts. I filled them with cooked chicken and some left over ham and then drizzled the honey mustard sauce on before topping with some Swiss cheese. Oh my they were YUMMY! Thanks for the inspiration!!

  34. I just made these and they are sooo delicious!

  35. These look delicious! I’m making a grocery list now, and including all of the ingredients.

    By the way, watch out for Reece. For his entire life, all my son wanted to be when he grew up was an engineer. Just a couple of months ago, that dream came true. He’s 21 and this momma is very proud! :)
