Expired Crescent Rolls
Expired Crescent Rolls - Ham & Cheese Crescents
Opening this “expired” crescent roll can, we could see that the dough was ever so slightly softer and puffier than cans opened prior to their eatbydate (see additional info below). It was also slightly stickier, but we un-rolled the package anyways and proceeded to press a slice of white cheddar cheese and then a thin slice of deli ham onto each section of dough and then roll them all up to make ham and cheese crescents. We did this on Monday – May 2, 2016.
Nothing “expired” about these crescents! Baked as usual for about 10 minutes, they looked and tasted as they usually would and they all disappeared quickly.

Note: You will notice that we recommend 1-2 weeks beyond a best-by date for refrigerated dough rolls, this is pretty standard to get the absolute best taste and quality from refrigerated dough products. Although many products will begin to break down after this point, many do remain strong for a longer period of time as witnessed with this can of “expired” crescent rolls.
