I got this recipe from a friend years ago and still make these cheesy sandwiches regularly. I serve them for dinner along with a steaming bowl of soup or fresh green salad. Any leftovers taste even better the next day for lunch. A helpful hint: Plain refrigerated biscuits seal together better than buttermilk types. —Jan Schmid Hibbing Minnesota

"We made this recipe with crescent roll dough (we prefer the taste). The taste was fantastic, but the amount of prep work for the final product was not justified. It took us almost an hour total to make the puffs. My fiance has been calling them glorified Hot Pockets."

"I have been making this recipe for years. It is requested every time my daughter returns from college. We top them with all the good taco stuff...more cheese, lettuce, salsa, sour cream & black olives. ONE is a meal. Leftovers are awesome."
