veggie pizza

Saw a post for veggie pizza that reminded me of my mother-in-law’s Veggie Bars! Football season is here so we make these a lot this time of year! Also great for parties!
Veggie Bars
1 pkg cream cheese softened
1 pkg ranch dressing mix
Fine shredded cheddar
Sheet of crescent roll dough
One small peeled carrot or a few baby carrots
A few raw broccoli florets
A few raw cauli florets
(You don’t need very many veggies at all! Once it’s all chopped it should be about a cup or so)
Roll dough onto cookie sheet and bake as directed. In a bowl mix together softened cream cheese and ranch mix. After making sure veggies are rinsed remove excess water and place in food processor and chop until really fine. Put veggies onto paper towels to press out any remaining moisture. One dough is done let completely cool. It helps to go ahead and remove the crescent dough from the sheet pan since it tends to stick just a little. You can put it on a cutting board or on parchment paper. Spread cream cheese mixture evenly onto the top. Sprinkle with a little bit of cheddar. Sprinkle veggies evenly over the top. Sprinkle more cheese on top. Press everything down lightly to help it bind down into the cream cheese. Cool in the fridge for a few minute to make it easier to cut. Cut into bars. Makes about 20.
