appetizer wreath

This appetizer wreath was easy to make ahead. I changed a few things. Their version served 16. Mine will make 28 or more servings.

My version:

3 tubes (8 oz. each) refrigerated crescent rolls
16 oz. cream cheese, softened
1 cup sour cream
2 teaspoons dill weed
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
2 teaspoons dried onion flakes
1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 cups chopped fresh broccoli florets
1 1/2 cup finely chopped celery
3/4 cup finely chopped sweet red pepper ~ Reserve enough of the red pepper to create a bow for the wreath. I made the bow first and diced the remaining pepper for the wreath.

I’m guessing on the amount of broccoli, celery and diced red pepper. I just diced and sprinkled it on until it looked full enough.

Remove crescent dough from packaging, but do not unroll it. Cut each tube into ten [rather than eight] slices. Arrange in a circle on an ungreased 16-in. pizza pan. I lined my pan with parchment paper. Arrange the remaining crescent rolls in a smaller circle just inside the first one.

Bake at 375° for 15-20 minutes or until golden brown. Cool for 5 minutes before carefully removing to a serving platter; cool completely.

In a small bowl, beat the cream cheese, sour cream, dill, garlic powder, dry onion, Worcestershire sauce and salt until smooth. Spread a little under the wreath to keep it from sliding off the platter. Spread mixture over the wreath; top with broccoli, celery and sweet red pepper. Create a bow with sweet red pepper to garnish the wreath. If I had had some cherry tomatoes handy, I would have dotted some of those on the wreath, as well.

Slice into 28 or more servings.

I’ll make this again. It was easy and so pretty! ~~Rhonda

    Nancy, if you look at this wreath (which uses two tubes of dough), it may give you a better picture.

    I used 3 tubes of dough and added a smaller circle within the larger one so it would serve more. Hope that helps! ~~Rhonda

    I am thinking this may also work with
    the fruit pizza using the sugar cookie tubes,
    and red , and green fruit maybe.

    Not following how the crescent rolls are placed
    in circle without unrolling.

    I make a breakfast pizza with crescent roll but they are
    unrolled and placed in a circle.
    Guess one could cut the center out and make it into an
    ornament on a separate pan.

    This is so pretty. I definitely will make this. Dad and wife are coming in the 28th. We will be having friends and Jen and hubby and kids. I’ll probably make it then.

    So it’s really a different shape of a veggie pizza, very creative. I would use veggie dip to make the already easy easier.

    I am going to give it a try because it looks so cute and yummy. Is there a trick to slicing the dough? I tried this on another recipe and it did not work, it just smooshed the dough down? Thanks!

    You said that this is easy to make ahead. How far ahead did you make it, and didn’t the bread part get soggy? Did you wait to assemble it until right before, or did you assemble it and refrigerate it until needed?
