Oh My! Mini Beef Pot Pies with Crescent Rolls may be the tastiest recipe you’ve ever made with leftovers. These are filled with beef and vegetables soaked in a red wine sauce.
Do you hear this refrain at your house? But, I don’t waaaaant leftovers. I’m emphasizing the whiny tone. Sometimes, I’m the complainer. LOL!
Well, this recipe will solve that problem! It completely transforms last night’s dinner!
The filling of this pot pie is from our Slow Cooker Beef and Vegetables in Red Wine Sauce recipe. I ranted and raved about the delicious red wine sauce and suggested that you should do whatever it takes to make sure that you have leftovers. I hope you did! 🙂
The red wine sauce is paired, with mushrooms, onions, carrots, tomatoes and beef in a soft pastry package will make your heart sing. It’s perfectly sized to be an appetizer too!
How to Make Mini Beef Pot Pies with Crescent Rolls
Refrigerated crescent roll dough makes assembly of a “pot pie” very easy. We’ve played around with this easy to work with dough before in Three Cheese Rosemary Pizza Bites and Easy Sausage Stuffing Balls. It’s a good convenience product to have in the refrigerator for impromptu occasions.
The Filling for Crescent Roll Pot Pies
You need leftovers to make these easy pot pies. (Otherwise, it’s not quite so easy!)
About 2 cups of filling will make 8 mini pot pies. We used Crock Pot Beef and Vegetables in Red Wine Sauce for the pot pies pictured. Crock-Pot Beef Bourguignon is also a tasty option. Shred beef and cut the vegetables into smaller pieces if needed.
Another very delicious option is to crumble leftover meatloaves, such as Sun-dried Tomato and Mozzarella Meatloaf or Meatloaf Muffins with Spinach and Pine Nuts, and fill the pastry.
The meat filled pastry will melt in your mouth and warm your soul and make everybody very happy! Yummmmmmmmmmy!
How to Shape Crescent Roll Dough for Pot Pies
Roll the crescent roll dough out and press the seams together. Pastry sheets are also available so you can skip that step. I like the flexibility of having a can of rolls in the refrigerator.
Either way, cut the dough into 8 equal sized squares using a pizza cutter or knife. Press the dough into a muffin tin coated with cooking spray, allowing the corners to hang over the edge.
Fill the muffin tin with the beef and vegetable filling until it’s about level with the top of the muffin tin.
Pull the corners to the middle. There is no need to brush the top with anything.
The result is nothing short of an indulgent.
Beware – these are very addictive!
The lesson learned: Save your leftovers and make easy beef pot pies the next day. Cook once and eat twice that’s my motto!
