    Filling was good but I'll make it with pie crust next time. We'd prefer a pastry texture instead of crescent rolls.

    I have made this several times now. It is a great appetizer and a must have at our Christmas Brunch. Easy to make the night ahead and refrigerate. Baste with yolk in the morning and throw in the oven.

    I just made this a little over an hour ago and can I say yummm? It would be great appetizer or just a snack. I did not use any onions because my husband and I do not like onions... I substituted the onions with onion powder. They were awesome! I will def. be making this again... thanks!!

    Oh My Gosh!!! This was just wonderful. I fixed this for the Super Bowl yesterday and only 3 slices were left. Mind you there were only 5 adults and 2 children to eat it and I had a ton of food. My dtr-in-law almost foundered herself with it. Yes, I will be making it again, soon.
