"Made in regular muffins tins and got a batch of 16 when I used two cans of crescent dough. I substituted an Italian mix of cheese in the place of Swiss. So good! Will make again!"

"These were definitely a hit at the brunch baby shower today! I could only get around 30 out of the can of crescent rolls which meant I had filling left over. No worries saved the excess filling for us to make a few more for a quick breakfast."

MY REVIEW

"Another hit for Christmas breakfast, made ahead then froze and taken out of the freezer first thing in the morning and placed in an oven on low, made in regular muffins tins, yum yum, I made it with ricotta."
