Many readers scored big with free and even money-maker Pillsbury Crescent Rolls. These triangles haped dough- gems provide mountains of dinner and snack possibilities. So pull the little tab, brace yourself for the inevitable POP of the package, and do some experimenting in the kitchen–on the cheap!
The following recipe uses just one can of Pillsbury Crescent Rolls. You can also double and freeze leftover filling.
Chicken Cordon Bleu Bites
2 cups cooked chicken (canned chicken will work if you’re in a hurry)
1/2 can condensed cream of chicken soup
1/2 cup shredded Swiss cheese
1/4 cup fresh green onion (finely chopped)
2 oz cream cheese (softened)
1/8 t salt
1/8 t pepper
dash of garlic salt
Preheat oven to 375. Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil for easy cleanup. Spray with cooking oil. Unfold two crescent triangles and lay them side-by-side on the greased pan. Place a 1-2 tablespoon scoop of filling in the middle of the largest part of each triangle. Fold two corners over the filling as shown, then roll the remaining crescent as usual. Continue with the last 6 triangles until you have 2 rows of 4 Cordon Bleu Bites. Bake in the oven for 12 minutes.
These taste best when warm and would go perfect with rice or salad. You can make a healthier version
by using low calorie cream cheese and cream of chicken soup. You could also omit the cream cheese
altogether. Add some broth to the mixture for a more runny, top-the-rice result.
This is just one example of how to put those crescent rolls to good use. If you can imagine it, you can
Try some of the following:
• Pizza bites with sauce, pepperoni, and mozzarella
• Tuna melt bites with tuna and cheese
• Cheeseburger bites
• Egg cheese and bacon bites
• Club sandwich bites with turkey, cheese and bacon, top with fresh tomato and lettuce on the side
Just one rule: stick with savory. Savory ingredients compliment the flavor of the dough. Avoid sweet fillings as they will have a bitter aftertaste (she finds out after 2 hours in the kitchen trying to make applepie bites!) Have fun with this, and invite your kids. This is a great hands-on recipe to share with your little helpers!
