I almost always get stuck when trying to decide what to bring to a potluck. My bible study was having a potluck this week and it was an appetizer theme. One of my best friends reminded me of these veggie squares that I've made before. It's actually a recipe from my sweet Nana. I grew up eating these at all sorts of family events. They are easy to make, taste delicious and bring out a little bit of nostalgia.
-Raw veggies of your choice, I usually use: a bell pepper, broccoli, cauliflower
-1/4 cup grated carrot
-1/4-1/2 cup of finely chopped fresh parsley
-1 can of Pillsbury crescent rolls
-1 container of cream cheese at room temperature (whipped cream cheese makes it even easier)
-1/4 cup of mayonnaise (I use olive oil mayo)
-a dash of lemon juice
1.) Open up Pillsbury crescent rolls and roll them out onto a greased cookie sheet. Some of the rolls will fall apart, so just pinch them together. Basically you want to create one giant rectangular sheet made of crescent rolls.
2.) Bake according to directions. Keep an eye on it near the end so you don't over bake it.
3.) Chop and dice your veggies while it's baking.
4.) Whip together the cream cheese, mayo, chopped parsley and dash of lemon juice. Depending on how much parsley you like, you can add 1/4 cup or 1/2 cup.
5.) Let crescent roll sheet cool.
6.) Spread cream cheese mixture onto the crescent roll sheet.
7.) Press your desired veggies into the cream cheese mixture.
8.) Top it with the grated carrot.You can also add little bit of chopped parsley if desired.
9.) Let cool in fridge for 1-2 hours.
10.) Cut into desired square sizes of your choice.
I'm so excited it's Friday! I hope you all have a lovely weekend!
