Smoked Kielbasa and Irish Cheddar Cheese Crescent Rolls

On the menu tonight – Smoked Kielbasa and Irish Cheddar Cheese Crescent Rolls!

These are a variation of pigs in a blanket. When I was shopping the other day, they totally got me with the samples. I sampled both the smoked kielbasa and Irish Cheddar. I had already planned on making something with crescent rolls, but once I tried these things, the menu changed.

This dish goes together really quickly. All you need to do is prep the ingredients, have the oven pre-heated, and the sheet pan ready. Roll out the crescent dough, spread a layer of mustard on it, add the kielbasa and cheese, then roll dough as you would if you were making plain crescent rolls. Bake per package instructions, but check them before you take them out. Because you are wrapping up some other ingredients, you may need an additional 5-10 minutes to allow that inner dough to finish cooking.

Serve right away. These rolls are good hot or cold and would make a great picnic dish. Also, think breakfast. You could fill these with other fillings like bacon and cheese. I bet a little scrambled eggs with some ham and cheese would be fantastic.

I hope you will make these rolls for your next party.

Smoked Kielbasa and Irish Cheddar Cheese Crescent Rolls


  • 1 pkg crescent rolls
  • 1 lb Smoked Kielbasa
  • 4 oz grainy or yellow mustard
  • 8 oz Irish Cheddar cheese
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/2 stick butter



Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees


Melt the butter over low heat with the minced garlic


Un-roll the crescent rolls and break them apart to individual triangles


Cut the kielbasa to length, use the base of the dough triangle as a guide


Then quarter each piece length-wise (see if you can take off the kielbasa casing)


Cut your cheese into similar size blocks as the kielbasa


Brush each of the spread out crescent rolls with mustard (don't be shy with the mustard)


Take two pieces of kielbasa, two pieces of cheese, and roll them up in the crescent dough (starting with the base of the triangle)


Repeat with each piece of crescent dough, placing the rolls on the sheet pan (leave a couple of inches between each roll as the cheese will likely ooze out)


Brush each roll with the garlic butter


Bake until the rolls are golden brown and remove from the oven


If you have any leftover melted butter, you can brush them again with the rest of the garlic butter


When done, let them rest at least 5-10 minutes to let the cheese cool down a bit


Serve hot or cold with some mustard available for dipping (they are fantastic right out of the fridge and perfect for a picnic)


I've also made these leaving out the garlic butter and they are still fantastic. The crescent dough is already kind of buttery. Feel free to substitute the smoked kielbasa with other fillings.
