Back-to-school is now upon us and everyone is thinking of easy lunch boxes to easy dinner ideas that kids will eat. These “Everything Bagel” Turkey Cheddar Crescent Rolls fit the bill for the lunch box to dinner and everything in between.
I know our daughter would have loved these coming home from school as an after-school snack even. She was always starving when she was in grade school. She would eat hardy after school and then a few hours later still have a great dinner.
Canadian Turkey can make quick work of any meal when it comes to prepared sliced smoked turkey and kids love it too. It is a quick fix for mom or dad and a tasty and nutritious protein also. If you love how easy this recipe is you will also love these crescent rolls too.
These turkey crescent rolls are packed with flavour and perfect hot out of the oven or still great cold in a lunch box. They would be delicious for a dinner or an at home lunch too.
The added “Everything Bagel” seasoning makes them wonderfully flavorful also!! And it is a great seasoning to have on hand for so many recipes too!
