A couple of weeks ago I shared a snack made with dough from a tube. This week I looked in my kitchen and saw more dough (we ran out of mini hot dogs) so it was time to check the Pillsbury website for ideas on how to use the dough we have on hand.
Nochebuena (the Latino name for Christmas Eve) and Christmas Day are all about spending time with the family, so of course there is a lot of food. The family doesn’t always help with cooking … lots of people just show up with a growly stomach, and expect to find food. I came across this recipe and thought it would be great, to disguise some leftovers after the big holiday meals (or while the main meal is finishing in the oven).
All text and photo for the recipe are from the Pillsbury website, where they have recipes for all kinds of foods, including their crescent rolls, pie crust and biscuits.
Dinner ready in 25 minutes! Mix Bac~Os® bacon flavor bits and ham with mashed potatoes and fill in Pillsbury® dinner rolls to make these cheesy sandwiches – a tasty baked meal.
- In large bowl, mix the mashed potatoes and hot water. Add cream cheese; beat until blended. Stir in the ham, onions, bacon and Cheddar cheese.
- Separate crescent dough into 8 triangles. Slightly stretch corners of short side of each triangle to make longer. Place on ungreased cookie sheet. Spoon 1/3 cup potato mixture on center of each triangle. Bring corners to center over filling, overlapping ends; press gently to seal.
- Mix butter and pepper sauce; brush over tops. Bake at 375°F 10 to 12 minutes or until golden brown.
