Tuna Crescent Ring

A few days ago I shared a Reddick family classic, Macaroni and Cheese, so I thought this week I would share another. I have no idea where we got the idea for the crescent ring, but as a kid my sister and I would make this all the time. I remember my mom finally saying, “Girls, I don’t think your dad can eat any more tuna.”

It’s a great pantry meal and it’s very kid-friendly if your kids are into cooking.  I always have tuna, and if you’re cooking for one or two you only need one can of crescent rolls. This is the most basic version you could make. You could mix this up by adding peas, onion, and celery.

This is a very visual recipe so we’re doing this photo tutorial style!

Servings: 4-6

  • 3 cans of tuna
  • 1/4 cup shredded cheese of choice
  • mayo (however much you like)
  • 2 cans crescent rolls
Tuna and Cheese
Drain tuna. Combine tuna, cheese, and mayo.
Tuna Crescent Ring
Arrange crescent triangles into a circle to look like a sun.

    I’ve done this with taco meat. You can also mix TVP with refried beans mixed with taco seasoning for the filling.
