These were DELICIOUS! I had some leftover steamed broccoli and some leftover crescent rolls so I used this recipe! To add an extra flare, I sprinkled some real bacon bits on top of the cheese before topping with the broccoli. I think next time I might put in even more bacon. I'd be interested in trying other cheeses too. Very yummy!

Haven't made them yet - and I will because they sound awesome! Just a bit confused - said it had cream cheese filling, but none in the ingredient list. Typo on 'cream' (should be 'creamy') or omission on ingredients?
