READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by NcMysteryShopper

A super cute alternative to the pig-in-blanket, these easy sandwiches layer ham, cheese and chicken patties inside crescent-roll covers. You can use mustard or ketchup to draw eyes and a mouth on your campers or use make eyes with pickle relish pieces. Your kids will love them!!!!

My five year old and I had a great time making these. My family all put in their votes, and while one loved them and the other didn't finish it averages out to an "okay" rating. Thanks for posting this creative and fun recipe!
