    This is a nice, different way to prepare tuna. I tried the tuna mixture before putting it in the crescent rolls and decided to throw in some powdered onion too, which worked out great. Thanks for posting!

    What a GEM of a recipe! And so versatile, too, as this could easily be a snack, an appetizer, or a light lunch. But the best part is that these were so easy to make, and the recipe called for common ingredients that I always have on hand. They would make a great appetizer for just about any kind of party. Thanks, tomsawyer. Made for 2009 Fall Pick-A-Chef.

    Great easy snack/light dinner - when I want something easy when my husband is working late and it is just me and the kids. My kids love these and they are really easy to throw together, with ingredients we usually have in the kitchen.
