whoa, these are fantastic! I'm on a budget so had some creative stretching to do. I used two cans of crescent rolls and 1 frozen chub of pork sausage meat (the kind some use for stuffing). I sprinkled fresh chives and parsley from the garden on the first batch and dried italian seasoning on the second. Used only enough grated cheese to say there was some on it and rolled, sliced and baked. While mine aren't as generously filled as yours, these are most welcome at my table. We will enjoy these again and again over the winter. Thanks for a great recipe. P.S. my daughter has asked for these to take to school. Now that's a compliment!
