French Dip Crescents

These French Dip Crescents are the perfect handheld sandwich with only 4 ingredients. They're ready in less than 30 minutes and they make a great appetizer, lunch, or dinner.

Need dinner ready in less than 30 minutes? And using just 4 easy ingredients? We’ve got you covered.

These easy french dip crescents are a version of your favorite french dip slider – all wrapped up and easily dippable – which makes them a win for little kids, too.

They make a great appetizer, lunch, or dinner. Perfect for tailgating or nights when you don’t have a lot of time.

Au Jus Recipe

When we’re short on time, we always use an Au Jus packet (we like the one pictured below).

If you want to try making your own, this quick Au Jus recipe from All Recipes is one of our favorites. We usually omit the fat drippings and add a pinch of garlic powder.

4 simple ingredients

Any recipe that only takes a few ingredients is a total win in our book. With just some refrigerated crescent rolls, provolone cheese, roast beef, and au jus mix, this recipe is good to go.

We use deli sliced roast beef in a pinch, but this recipe tastes even better with Sunday dinner pot roast leftovers.

How to make french dip crescents

Unroll crescents onto a large ungreased cookie sheet. We like to line ours with foil for a quick and easy cleanup. Place a slice or two of roast beef and a piece of cheese on each crescent.

Roll crescents starting from the wide end and ending at the narrow end.


Bake at 375 degrees for 13 to 15 minutes, until crescents are a golden color.

*Baking tip: if you find that your crescents aren’t cooking all the way through, you may need to decrease the temperature to 350 and cook them for a bit longer (around 18-20 minutes).


While the crescents are baking, prepare au jus. Dip freshly baked crescent rolls into au jus.

Other variations

We love this recipe as is, but it would be good served with a few extra additions, too.

Try adding extra veggies like caramelized onions or sautéed green peppers.

Substitute your favorite cheese (like pepper jack) in place of provolone.

Add a bit of horseradish inside the crescents (or use it to dip). My kids don’t love this option as much, but I think it’s so tasty with that added kick.

  1. I make these all the time for my preschoolers lunch box! The only tweak is that I add a bit of caramelized onion and garlic into it as well (which softens up the cheese a bit for easier rolling!). They freeze well so I can just use them as needed.

    Hello there! I first discovered you gals (on YouTube) while searching recipes for the IP I received for Christmas and then I just kinda started stalking you 🤣 While we’re here staying at home like the rest of the country I was searching for something easy to make for dinner (just me and my 15 y/o daughter) and happened across this recipe. It was super easy and I had practically everything right here at home (crazy how that happened). It made quite a big batch (for just 2) but these were as good the next day (I just ate them without reheating) while working from home. I found several other recipes I plan on making soon! Thank you for taking the time to put your recipes out there for the rest of us to enjoy! Especially those of us that have no imagination when it comes to cooking!
    • Hi Laura. This is the sweetest comment we have received in a long time. I hope you and your daughter are doing well while being quarantined. So glad you found us. We have weekly videos on You-tube and a lot of them are for the Instant Pot. Let us know if you have any questions on recipes. We would love to help. Stay home and stay safe!!! The Six Sisters

        Cyd, best wishes to you and all your families! We are both staying home and health! I’ve been watching your YouTube channel a lot more lately looking for more recipes and this weekend we’re planning on making the Lasagna in the springform pan and D&G IP Apple Crisp dessert recipe. One question?!? Do you think I should consider purchasing an extra IP pot and do you prefer a non-stick pot or a stainless steel one?
        • You can easily make both of these recipes with one instant pot. You may the additional accessories (pans) to make certain recipes. Some of the sisters have 2 instant pots and it is really helpful. But know that you can also get buy with one. Here is the amazon link to our favorite instant pot. It's the Instant Pot 6 quart duo. If you have a large family you can get it in the 8 quart size. https://amzn.to/2ye9W3J
