Great recipe - the filling tastes just like the traditional runzas I've had (and I live in Nebraska - I've eaten a lot of runzas, though this was the first time I've made them myself). I used a whole large onion instead of measuring out 1/2 cup, and used 6 celery stalks. Also, I used fresh minced garlic instead of garlic salt. I added salt to the mixture. I cooked everything together first, too (in a skillet on the stove). The crescent rolls gave the crust/bread a light, buttery flavor that I really enjoyed. All in all, I really liked this recipe and will make them again. Thank you for posting!
