    mammamia #2's Note:

    The dough is made from Crescent refrigerated rolls. The filling is richly scrumptious, and the final product looks very impressive--your secret is that its production is easier than it looks. My dear junior high friend made this for me when we found each other after 45 years. The recipe is a keeper, just as Lucia is!

      Made this for Christmas eve breakfast for family - it was a solid hit. Did not use celery or green onions or parsley and used about half of an 8 ounce cream cheese package. Used lowfat crescent rolls. Thanks for sharing this.

      This recipe has an outstanding blend of flavours. My braid was less than beautiful (which is why I did not post a photo!) but I will make this regularly as it is a very easy and inexpensive meal to prepare. Thanks for posting.
