As a college student with not very many kitchen resources, ingredients, or dishes, these were so easy to make! Made them with friends and they turned out wonderfully. Will be making again!

Super easy, but not super flavorful. Definitely did not turn out like the picture. I used turkey bacon and onion powder.

These had a really good flavor and everyone who tried them liked them, but I couldn't cut them into circles. Even with a serrated knife, they came out like little blobs and kind of sealed themselves shut. Not sure if I rolled them too small, or maybe I need to chill them first next time.

This looks wonderful, but is the carb count correct? I'm a diabetic and am not sure 4 carbs is correct. Please let me know. I would Love to make this...

So good and SO easy to make. I roasted a turkey on Superbowl weekend and had these for an appetizer. The kitchen was so crowded but I still made them!

Delicious! Instead of the regular cream cheese, milk and chopped onion - I bought a tub of onion and chive flavor soft cream cheese. It spread on easily and was delicious with the bacon. As mentioned in TOH magazine, I dipped each one in shredded Parmesan cheese before baking. I will definitely make these again.

So easy, so good, and so versatile. I played around with the ingredients, as did some other reviewers, and I lightly brushed the tops with olive oil, then sprinkled with Parm and garlic salt before baking. That was a real winner.

These were good, easy , and versatile. I've made them three times and used different fillings each time - sausage and green chile, chopped olives and sausage, and sharp cheddar and parmesan.

These are good and super easy to make. You can used flavored cream cheese and any meats you like. The bacon cream cheese with bacon pieces was a hit this year!

These were good. I made them for a Christmas party and the kids loved them. I made them ahead of time and then sliced and baked when I needed them.
