    These are delish – my kids love them.
    Maybe it’s just me, but I ended up using 3 containers of crescent rolls with the ingredients listed above. I also add Parmesan cheese to the bread crumbs and sprinkle.

    Using about a tablespoon of filling per triangle as directed, I needed 2 containers of crescent rolls. The packets look delicious!
