Mini French Dips

    These days, it is absolutely essential that dinner be easy and simple. I get "night sickness" as opposed to morning sickness, so the thought of standing and chopping stuff for a long time doesn't really appeal to me. But, my family still needs to eat, so I look for things that I don't really have to do a lot of prep work for. Heck, even when I'm not pregnant, it's super nice to have those type of meals that you can just throw together at the last minute! Every lady needs a break now and then when it comes to getting dinner ready! Well, that's why I absolutely adore these Mini French Dips. I love French Dip, and it's usually a really easy meal to put together, but they can be kind of hard to eat, especially for children! So, when I found a mini version on Pinterest, I was super giddy.
     My kids gobbled these up, which means a lot because they tend to be really finicky when it comes to food. They will eat things that I thought they wouldn't like, and they won't touch things that I was positive they would like.... so I was super happy when they ate these!

The ingredient list is super long and tricky, so pay close attention (just kidding. Ha, ha, ha!)

2 packages of crescent rolls, 8 count
1 lb. thinly sliced deli roast beef
Swiss, Provolone, or Mozzarella cheese, cut into 16 pieces. I just used string cheese and stuck some on the sandwiches.
Some Au Jus for dipping.
Optional: Horseradish

     I lined a cookie sheet with tinfoil, because I always like an easy cleanup, but don't feel like you have to use tinfoil. Unroll the crescent rolls, stick a couple of slices of the roast beef on top, and add the cheese.

     Then roll them up, and bake according to the crescent roll instructions. 

     Wow, can it really get any easier than that? I think not! Thank heavens for Pinterest. It's loaded with tons of amazing ideas and recipes that make me think "Huh, why didn't I think of that?"


  1. These are amazing!! I am in love with french dip, so these are perfect.

  2. What a great summer food. Yum! I would love for you to share these on my linky party!
