Salmon Dill Croissants Recipe

From Orleans, Ontario, Maya Whittier shares Salmon Dill Croissants. "The original recipe made a cheese ball that my parents only served at Christmas parties," she recalls. "It was so delicious on crackers that I decided to try it as a filling inside croissants. "These smoky salmon sandwiches taste so wonderfully rich that everyone assumes they're gourmet," Maya writes. "No one needs to know they're so fast and easy to prepare by using canned salmon."

"I think that this recipe is something you'll either love or not love. I found the spread to be really rich (mostly because of the full block of cream cheese in it) and a little too much for a sandwich spread. I do think it would be great on crackers, as an appetizer. I served mine on Kaiser rolls instead of the croissants. I probably won't make it again, just because it was too much. I wanted a few bites of it, but it got to be a little overwhelming after that."
