Beet & Goat Cheese Crescents

These savory crescents are something a little different that I created to have as a side for a salad (jumbo crescents) or as appetizers (regular crescents).

Prep Time: 15 Minutes | Cook Time: 20 Minutes | Makes: 4-8 Crescents

1 tube Pillsbury Crescents (either regular or jumbo)
1 beet, grated
125g goat cheese, softened
3 tablespoons milk
1 tablespoon fresh dill, chopped
salt & pepper

- Combine goat cheese, milk, dill and generously season with salt and pepper.
- Grate 1 beet (give it a little squeeze to remove extra liquid).
- Spread out crescent dough and assemble by adding goat cheese mixture at large end of dough, then grated beets. Roll up, pinch ends and shape.
- Place on baking sheet and bake @ 375° for 20 minutes. Let cool for 5 minutes and serve immediately!


  1. Great idea!! Love the creativity!!! Kateiscooking

  2. How very interesting but delicious sounding! I love beets and goat cheese so I bet I would like this combo!

  3. I love goat cheese! You've got me sold!

  4. I love the combination of beet and goat cheese--it is one of my all time favorites. I can never resist anything beet and goat cheese on a menu. This is a really great way of using the Pillsbury crescents--which I think are so buttery and delicious. Thanks for the idea!

  5. I haven't experimented too much with beets but I think this gives me an excuse to try some!

  6. It's so beautiful, with that red, red beet contrasting with the white goat cheese! It's kind of sad you have to hid it inside the crescent dough...except that anything inside that crescent dough tends to taste divine!

    I'm going to store this up in my head, and next time I see beets for sale, I'm going to grab one and give it a try. It looks both special and *easy*!

    Thanks for linking to Food on Fridays!

  7. Hmmm...I haven't had beets in years and generally don't even think about having them. This recipe is really making me reconsider. I love how simple they are and it seems like everything would blend together perfectly! Thanks for linking up, I think this will be another popular one. :)

  8. I would have never thought of this - it sounds so very interesting - I am on a mission to eat beets this fall so I am going to have to try this!

  9. Hi! I am visiting for the first time and I am loving this great idea! Love butter crescents and LOVE goat cheese! Angie

  10. Wow, those look amazing. What was the flavor like???

  11. @The Mom Chef: They passed my panel of taste testers (husband and son). They tasted "Ukrainian" ...flavors I grew up with especially the fresh dill!

  12. I love stuffed crescents! These sound great!

    Thanks for linking up last week for Friday Favorites!

  13. I never met a beet I didn't like! And with goat cheese...YUMM!
