There’s thinly shaved beef, onions, peppers, and gooey, melted white American cheese. Cut into slices for a great gameday treat or family meal.

Tips for making Cheesesteak Crescent Braid:

  • I love the buttery taste of crescent dough for this recipe, but you could use refrigerated pizza dough instead.
  • Add mushrooms if you like them or jalapenos or banana peppers for some heat.

  • Look for a tube with a Crescent dough sheet in it. If you can’t find it, you can use Crescent Roll Dough and press the perforations together.
  • I love the taste of White American cheese. It’s so creamy and melty, but you could use Provolone cheese or mozzarella. If you use White American cheese get a good quality one from the deli counter.

Place filling on the Crescent dough


  • Drain your cooked steak, onions and peppers on paper towels before placing them on the crescent dough. Any excess moisture will make for a soggy crescent braid.
  • I use Steak-Uums for this recipe but you can use any brand of frozen sandwich steaks that are thin-sliced. No need to thaw before cooking.
