Crescent Roll Tomato-Basil Squares

Oh, the classic combination of tomato and basil!  It's truly one of summer's simple {and best} pleasures.  I love taking slices of garden-fresh tomatoes, laying a couple of basil leaves on top, sprinkling on a tiny touch of salt, and popping the stack straight in my mouth.

Or another favorite way to enjoy classic tomato and basil deliciousness?
As a tomato and basil sandwich, of course.  The classic summer Southern sandwich ... tomatoes on white bread with a generous slathering of mayonnaise ... gets even tastier with the addition of a bit of fresh basil.  There's simply not much better than this.

Well, unless it involves crescent rolls and melty cheese, that is!  Like in these super flavorful Crescent Roll Tomato-Basil Squares.

Make Crescent Roll Tomato-Basil Squares with fresh Roma tomatoes.

Yes, taking fresh tomatoes and basil, slathering them up with a melty-cheese-and-mayo mixture, and layering them on top of a crescent roll crust takes this classic tomato-basil flavor combination over the top.

Once the cheesy deliciousness is baked, simply cut into squares with a pizza cutter for easy slicing.  And then you've got one beautiful platter of tasty squares to enjoy.

  2. Made these a couple times now. Very good, however, I did make a few changes. First, I used puff pastry sheets (be sure to score with a fork or knife several times) and I added cream cheese to the cheese mixture. I made one with tomatoes, like above and the other with uncooked asparagus rolled in olive oil and salt and pepper. So, so delicious! Bake at 400 for 15 minutes. Everyone loved them! I also added some red pepper flakes to the tomato tart to give it a little kick. Enjoy!

  3. How clever is this!!! I Love using the crescent rolls here because it makes a homemade flatbread so simple and easy to put together -- no need for forethought or letting dough ferment. Awesome!
