Cheese Steak Crescent Braid Recipe

Cheese Steak


A little more than a week ago we had our annual Build Your Blog Conference here in Salt Lake City.  We had over 400 bloggers come.  It was a complete BLAST!  A few lucky bloggers got to go to Christopher’s Steak House and I only heard rave reviews.  Just the thought of steak makes my mouth water, so when I got home I decided to cook up some steak myself.  You can check out how I cook my steak HERE).  With the leftovers I made these amazing Cheese Steak Crescent Braids.  They were a huge hit!


Cheese Steak Crescent Braid 


1 Tablespoon of butter

4-6 ounces of cooked steak (find out how I cook my Steak HERE)

1 small red pepper, chopped

1 bunch of green onion, chopped (about 1/2 cup)

1 (10 oz ) container of refrigerated crescent dinner rolls

1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese

1 egg, beaten,



Heat oven to 350°F.

In a skillet, melt you butter and cook your pepper and onion at medium high heat. Cook until veggies are soft and tender.

Mix your veggies and steak together.

Unroll 1 can of dough onto an ungreased cookie sheet, firmly press to make the dough into one big piece. Press or roll into a rectangle.

Spoon the steak mixture down center of dough to within 1/4 inch of each end. Sprinkle the cheese over the steak mixture.

Make cuts 1 inch apart on long sides of rectangle just to edge of filling (I used a pizza cutter to cut my dough).  For braided appearance, fold strips of dough at an angle halfway across filling with ends slightly overlapping, alternating from side to side. Fold ends of braid under to seal. Brush braid with beaten egg. (You don’t have to use all of the egg, just brush enough on to cover the top).

Bake 16 to 22 minutes or until golden brown, switching position of cookie sheet in your oven halfway through baking. Cool 1 minute; remove braid from cookie sheet. Let stand 5 minutes before serving. Cut into slices.

    I’ve found that the pizza dough works better than the crescent rolls for these braids. It’s faster at least. My mom and I have been doing “braids” for years. Ham & cheese, pizza, dessert braids…everything we can think of! In a pinch the pizza dough is already rectangle (usually the generic I buy is) and doesn’t require crimping and meshing of seams! We usually season the top according the the meal we’re making.
