Easter this year may be a little different for most families around the world. To keep a sense of normalcy, I’m encouraging celebrating the way we would before— but only with the smaller guest list of those that live with us at home.
Our families hunkered down with us at home are some of the most important people, anyway! I’ve been rewarding the ones in my house with easy Easter treats like this carrot-shaped crescent roll recipe.
The fastest way to warm the hearts of The Mister and my son is through their bellies!
Crescent rolls are already a fan favorite here, so I baked this fun 15-minute dish to keep our traditions of Easter going while celebrating this year as just the three of us at home.
Next year, I’ll make this easy and delicious recipe again as a new tradition and a reminder of how we’re stronger together and how we made it through!
Kind of like dangling a carrot of hope— Happy Easter!

Stuffed Tuna Salad, Carrot-Shaped Crescent Rolls
- (1) can of 8 crescent rolls
- approx 15 inches of aluminum foil
For the curry tuna salad
- 1 can of tuna packed in water
- 1 tablespoon of sweet relish
- 1/2 stick of celery diced
- 1 tablespoon of lemon juice
- 1 teaspoon of red onions
- 1 teaspoon of fresh garlic or garlic powder
- 1 tablespoon of yellow curry
- 1/4 teaspoon of sea salt
- 1/4 teaspoon of ground black pepper
- 1 tablespoon of plain greek yogurt
- 1 tablespoon of mayo
1. Fold the aluminum foil sheet into 8 equal sections and tear or cut them out.
2. Shape each foil section longwise into 3-D hollow rods, pinched at each end.
3. In a long, downward motion, wrap each crescent roll triangle onto the hollow foil rods. The ideas is to shape each triangle into a carrot/cone form on the rod.
Be careful not to flatten the 3-D rods as you wrap the crescent rolls around them. The foil rods create the opening to fill your carrot-shaped crescent rolls with the tuna salad.
4. Place the wrapped crescent rolls on a baking sheet and bake for 9-12 minutes.
5. Remove the foil placeholders from the baked crescent rolls. Gently slide them out.
6. With a very small spoon or spatula, fill each crescent roll with tuna salad.
7. Garnish with fresh kale (that’s what I used) or parsley as your carrot topper!
8. Optional- sprinkle your favorite orange cheese over your carrot-shaped crescent rolls. You may also choose to bake the cheese onto the finished rolls by placing then back in the oven for only a couple of minutes.
9. Enjoy & “hoppy” Easter!
