Buttery crescent rolls are folded over a generous amount of cream cheese, pickles and salami. These little bundles are a nice change for your lunchtime routine!
My daughter is a creature of habit when it comes to her lunch. She will eat one type of sandwich for months on end (or so it seems). For a while, she would only eat cookie butter sandwiches. Then it was Nutella and peanut butter before she moved on to a turkey and lettuce sandwich. Then, about two months ago, I introduced her to salami and cream cheese. She’s had a salami and cream cheese bagel for lunch every single day since then.
I’m in awe of her endurance. I couldn’t eat the same thing every single day. In fact, I’m having a hard time just making the same sandwich each day. I finally begged and pleaded with her to try something new. I suggested trying wraps; she hasn’t gone through a wrap phase yet. I was thrilled when she agreed to try a wrap for lunch, until she requested a salami and cream cheese wrap! Oh well. I can’t blame her. Salami and cream cheese are one of my favorite combinations too!
If my daughter was going to eat salami and cream cheese very single day, I figured the least I could do was try to serve up a new way to enjoy them.
These bundles are so, so easy. They start with crescent roll dough. I often use crescent roll dough for sweet recipes like these peach cinnamon rolls or these Payday crescents, but these savory bundles might me my favorite! Softened and seasoned cream cheese is spread over the crescent squares and then topped with salami slices and pickles. Tangy, creamy, buttery flavors spill out in each bite.
Turns out I just made more work for myself. My daughter loved these bundles so much; I have had to make a quick run on crescent rolls! Actually, buying them in bulk would be much better. I have a feeling I’ll be making this recipe A LOT!
