This recipe is a favorite by all who have tried it. It is a great idea for any potluck get together or just a nice dinner at home. My family loves this recipe it is great with steamed vegetables and rice. We are not sure of the origin of it, we have just been making it for years and it gets better every time.

- (careful not to burn the tops of the crescents) Serve over a bed of rice with steamed vegetables and VOILA!
