[a.k.a. 'Glorias']*
Christmas version toppings: scallions, green pepper, broccoli, and red pepper.

christmas version of appetizer


  • 1 - package crescent dinner rolls in 9" x 13" pan
  • 1 - 8-ounce package of cream cheese, softened [light or regular]
  • - cup mayonnaise
  • - cup sour cream
  • 2 - tablespoons of Hidden Valley Ranch dressing [powder only]
  • Various - finely chopped veggies [possibilities: broccoli, red or green pepper, mushrooms, scallions, cauliflower, zucchini, etc.] depending on your taste and desired color.


  1. Roll out crescent dinner roll dough flat on baking pan. Scrunch together any of the pre-cuts for the dinner rolls. You want 1 flat piece. Bake until golden brown.
  2. Mix cream cheese, mayonnaise, sour cream, and Ranch powder in a bowl. Use a fork or whisk to blend in the cream cheese.
  3. Finely chop selected vegetables. [Having finely chopped veggies makes it easier to cut into bite size squares and gives better mix of colors.]
  4. Allow dinner roll dough to cool completely.
  5. Spread cream cheese mixture over the dinner roll dough.
  6. Sprinkle finely chopped veggies, one at a time.
  7. Once you have sprinkled all the veggies, gentle press the veggies into the cream cheese mixture.
  8. Keep refrigerated until ready to serve.


Nickname 'Glorias' is in honor of Gloria Zieziula, who first introduced us to this appetizer.
