This Pulled Pork Crescent Ring is easy to make and stuffed with pulled pork, cheese and more! A crowd favorite party appetizer or game day recipe!
There have been so many big game days around here lately. With the Super Bowl followed so quickly by March Madness, I have been coming up with all kinds of new game day eats. Jorge went to Syracuse, so you can imagine how closely we have been following the games around these parts!
This Pulled Pork Crescent Ring is one we have made numerous times now and I could not wait to share how easy and delicious this recipe is! We use a package of crescent dough for the base, just pop that baby open and lay it around in a circle. We will it with pulled pork, cheese, onions, jalapeno and cilantro and bake it till golden.
This Pulled Pork Crescent is a great party appetizer or game day recipe. Honestly, Jorge just requests I make it for dinner sometimes too! It’s delicious, easy and filling!
Pulled Pork Crescent Ring
This Pulled Pork Crescent Ring only takes 30 minutes to make (20 minutes of that is baking time) and it’s crazy delicious! You can easily customize the recipe to your tastes and make it your own. It’s a great game day appetizer or party appetizer to set out and watch it disappear. It’s so good, I usually have to make at least 3 rings for a party and it’s still one of the firsts to go!
This Pulled Pork Crescent Ring is stuffed with pulled pork, cheese and whatever toppings you would like. It’s served warm and hot out of the oven. I have made this for many of our friends now and it has become one of my most requested party apps!
- Pulled Pork
- Crescent Dough
- Provolone Cheese
- Red Onion
- Fresh Cilantro
You can use store bought already made pulled pork to make this recipe extra fast or you can make your own homemade pulled pork. Both ways are delicious, it is up to you and how much time you have! If you are making your own, I recommend my Crockpot Pulled Pork or my mom’s famous Pulled Pork recipe with a little liquid smoke for an extra authentic flavor!
Make it your own!
Sometimes I add pineapple (I love BBQ & pineapple together) and I have also added corn a few times when I had it on hand. The cilantro and jalapeños can be skipped if you aren’t a fan, but they do add great flavor!
How to make Pulled Pork Crescent Ring:
You only need about 10 minutes to prep this crescent ring and into the oven it goes. Watch the video in this post to see how to form the crescent ring. While it looks like it might be a little tricky in the photos, I promise it is super easy to do!
- Unroll: Open a can of crescent dough; separate into triangles Arrange triangles in ring so short sides of triangles form a 5-inch circle in center. Dough will overlap. Dough ring should look like the sun.
- Fill: Place cheese on the half of each triangle closest to center of ring. Spoon pulled pork onto the cheese and top with onion, jalapeño and cilantro.
- Fold: Bring each dough triangle up over filling, tucking dough under bottom layer of dough to secure it. Repeat around ring until entire filling is enclosed (some filling will show).
- Bake: Bake for 20 minutes at 375°F, or until dough is golden brown. Cool for 5 minutes before serving!
