Create your own version of Chopped at home

Everybody loves the shows Chopped and Chopped Junior. Have you ever wondered if *you* could make it as one of the contestants? Well, now you can find out with our GL Chopped challenge. We came up with a list of random ingredients you probably have laying around your house. Try coming up with your own culinary creation first, then peep our own recipes using the items below if you're stumped.

The ingredients: 

- One tube of crescent roll dough
- Lunch meat
- Cheese
- Peaches
- Apples
- Ice cream

Recipe #1- Dough way!
You might need some supervision with this one, but put some vegetable oil into a pan, roll your crescent dough into doughnuts and pop them in the pan. Use tongs to make sure they are cooked all the way through. Once they are cooked, use the tongs to cover them in cinnamon sugar or icing. Top that off with some ice cream and you have the perfect dessert.

Recipe #2- Apple cinnamon ice cream cradles
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Use the crescent dough to form large triangle shapes. Peel some peaches or apples, cut them into thin slices and cover them in a tablespoon of melted butter. Then, sprinkle the triangles of dough with a cinnamon sugar mixture and place a couple of thin apple or peach slices in the center and fold it up. Bake until they are golden brown. Take them out of the oven, open them up and put a scoop of ice cream inside.

Recipe #3- Ham and cheese...and peaches, oh my!
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Roll your crescent dough out into a flat rectangle. On one half of the dough, lay out thin slices of peeled peaches, ham and cheese. Afterwards, cover the ingredients with the other half of the dough and cinch the edges, sealing everything inside. Make cuts in the top of your pouch and put it in the oven. Once it’s out of the oven, dip the cut sections into mustard.

Recipe #4- Meat and cheese crescent classics
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Take thin pre-cut sections of your crescent roll and place a slice of cheese and a bit of folded lunch meat in the center. Roll up the dough into crescents, enclosing the ham and cheese, and pop them in the oven for 18-20 minutes.
