After tasting this savory recipe, you'll find yourself turning to this recipe time and again. Prepared crescent roll dough makes the lattice crust a snap. Enjoy it with a side dish of cranberry relish and mint brownies for dessert or whip up an apple Waldorf salad and round out the menu with raspberry sherbet.— Taste of Home Test Kitchen, Greendale, Wisconsin
