Can I Use A Different Type of Meat
Deli turkey, roast beef, or even ham would be a great alternative. We love serving up with corned beef but feel free to do different meat if you would like.
You could even use leftover turkey from a holiday or ham. It would be a tasty option. I love the tang from the sauerkraut paired with the crescent rolls. The Swiss cheese is the perfect cheese for this recipe.
