Every Monday evening I meet with a group of friends, which is a great place to try out the appetizer recipes that I have found. The possibilities for this concept are endless! I could make mini pizzas, pigs in a crescent (instead of a blanket), even go the sweet route and fill with apples and cinnamon, chocolate, really there are so many things to try out. While explaining what I was making to a friend as I picked her up from the airport I mistakenly said that I would be smashing the egg whites on to the crescent rolls, ha! It may be one of those things where you have to be there to appreciate it, but we were cracking up and I will always think of it whenever I make these rolls. One of the things I would recommend is that if you have the space roll out all the crescent roll and fill them all before you roll them up. Trust me it’s really hard to try and shove spinach and cheese into the side of an already rolled up crescent roll! If you were wondering the ladies approved of this one
