This is a start to a really wonderful recipe. As is it didn't have a lot of flavor but it could be jazzed up by using different spices and maybe some different cheeses. I really liked the change of pace with a crescent roll crust. Don't let it sit for too long though because it does get soggy rather fast.Reply
