Indulge your little sweethearts with a heart-shaped dinner, it’s a fun way to celebrate Valentine’s Day as a family. I’m not talking about lobster tails or expensive steaks, but a meal that everyone can appreciate. My recipe for Italian Roast Beef Crescent Ring is cheesy, meaty goodness shaped like a heart to win hearts!
Speaking of food crushes, I first made this recipe for BeefLovingTexans.com and have become obsessed with it, making it again and again for casual weeknight dinners and to take to a Super Bowl party (in a football shape, naturally)! It can be cut into small pieces for an appetizer or paired a larger portion with a green salad for a well-balanced meal.
Thinly slice roast beef, fresh spinach leaves, smoky provolone cheese and sun-dried tomatoes play peek-a-boo inside buttery, crescent dinner roll crust that has been seasoned with Italian herbs. Use beef from the delicatessen and dough from the refrigerated section of your market, this 30-minute meal is just that easy!
Older kids can help whip up this dish, or even make it on their own! Let younger children in on the fun too, give them a small cookie cutter to create heart-shaped ingredients for a fruit or green salad.
Here are some of my other Family-Friendly Valentine’s Day Dinner Ideas including heart-shaped cottage fries, a pepperoni “heart” pizza and delicious desserts.
Serve “Kiss of Honey” Strawberry Hot Chocolate for the kids – grown-ups can share a bottle of wine!
Also, did you see my Strawberry Protein Truffles, a great homemade gift for any sweetheart who loves to sweat and make muscles!
So, what are you doing for Valentine’s Day — big date night or do you prefer to stay home with the kids? Please share in the comments – XOXO, Jennifer
