"We thought these were pretty good. I used the 1/4 lb it asked for but found that it wasn't really enough to fill the crescent rolls. While they were delicious after first making them, they did not reheat as well - the crescent roll became gummy. These are good if you plan on eating it all in one sitting."

"breakfast is my favorite meal and what is not to like with this recipe? Sausage, cheese and I added some scrambled eggs to mine! These are easy to make and easy to take. Just the thing for a breakfast on the road or for a great addition to a breakfast buffet! I might try these with ham instead of sausage."

"Very good! Super easy !! I used reduced fat Crescent dough and 2% fat free cheddar cheese to decrease some excess calories. This recipe doubles well."

"I made this for a food day at work and everyone loved them! I made 4X the recipe and made them mini so I had a few left to take home. Both of my kids really enjoyed and asked when I would make them at home."
