Great idea. I used string cheese as suggested by JPerez, and added a couple slices of spicy pepperoni (hot by Hormel). To make sure they weren't too greasy, I microwaved the pepperoni slices on high for 1 min, sandwiched between paper towels. There is no end to the cheese/meat combinations I might try next: Ham and Swiss, Italian sausage and parmesan. Beef and cheddar. Can't wait. Thanks for posting.

The title says it all "silly-simple"...but they are also silly-delicious! I did mod the recipe slightly, using reduced-fat crescents and low-fat shredded cheese (i had planned to use WW string cheese but it'd gone bad). With my modifications, I figured these to be 2 to 3 WW pts/roll (depending on the amount of cheese used). The most difficult part of this recipe was rolling the loose cheese up in the crescent (i'm not good at rolling pretty crescents anway, the escaping cheese just made it harder) but when they came out of the oven they actually looked nice. We gobbled these up, there aren't any leftovers! Thanks for sharing, we will definitely be making these again!

I used actual cheddar (not processed cheese) cut into small strips for this recipe, becaue I didn't have any American processed cheese on hand...these I will definitely make again and again! I have probably 4-5 recipes that I make at least twice a month, this is definitely going to be added to that list. My fiance didn't believe be when I told him that the only ingredients where refrigerated crescent rolls, cheese, and garlic powder. Served with mushroom soup, awesome :)

mmmm, yummy! I used slices of marble cheese in them. We had them with some Hamburger Stew. Very very tasty! There's something about the crescent rolls that I don't care for, the cheese and garlic powder totally covered whatever it is I normally don't care for because I loved them so much I want more.

Five stars for taste and ease of prep! I used string cheese cut into pieces and drizzled melted butter and parmesan cheese on top before baking.

Very tasty and easy. I used 2 pieces of string cheese, quartered, instead of the American. It was a great side to a pasta dinner. Thanks.
