Every month we have a potluck for the North American Women's group here in Eindhoven, so I try to come up with something new to take. It needs to travel well, since 90% of the time I'm going by bike. Certain things just don't look terribly pretty after they've been jostled around for a half an hour on a bike rack. Luckily, you people see the before bike carnage photos. That said, I don't think these babies will have that problem.
I started out thinking that I was going to make a taco ring, but after I bought the crescent rolls I decided to do something a little easier to transport.
1 can refrigerated crescent roll dough*
1/2 cup shredded cheese (I used swiss for these)
2 green onions, chopped
1 roasted red pepper (roast your own, or used jarred), chopped
5 tbsp cream
Preheat the oven to 175 C (350 F).
Unroll the dough and make a large rectangle. Press the perforations together to form one large piece. Cut rectangle into 3-4" squares. I got 18 from my dough, but I know cans of dough are different sizes so you may end up with more or less.
Grease a muffin tin and lay each square of dough into a muffin cup. The corners will stick out of the tops. Sprinkle a little bit of cheese in the bottom of each muffin cup. Then a few pieces of green onion, and a small amount of the red pepper. There isn't really a set amount to add, just eyeball it and distribute things evenly.
Next, whisk the egg and the cream into a small bowl. Spoon about a tablespoon of the egg mixture into each muffin cup. If you have a bit leftover, just distribute it through the cups, but don't add too much liquid or it'll puff too much and flow out of the muffin tin.
Bake for 20 minutes or until the dough is a nice golden brown.
*Puff pastry would work too, but you'll get a slightly different texture in the dough.
You really could put whatever the heck you felt like in these. I think it'd be fun to experiment with different savory fillings, as well as making a nice little dessert of them.
