Recipe by Kittencal@recipezazz
Sauteed mushrooms with cheese baked inside flakey crescent dough. You will get 16 mushroom crescents from two 8-ounce packages of crescent rolls, you can easily double the recipe to serve a large crowd.. I usually sprinkle half of the crescents with grated Parmesan cheese and the other half with sesame seeds before baking.

While this recipe tasted OK, it reinforced my hatred for working with crescent dough. I could NOT get my edges to seal, had filling oozing out and then they went flat right after taking them out of the oven. There was no way I could fit all of the filling into my rectangles. I ended up heating the leftover filling in a small dish and served it with triscuts. I love mushrooms and onions but I will not make this again.
