This doesn't really have a name, but take the rolls and spread them all over with breakfast sausage (uncooked). About the same thickness of sausage as rolls. Roll up and cut into disks and bake till done.

I make some really tasty marshmallow puffs. Truth be told the recipe is something from 8th grade Home Ec.

Ingredients:
* 8 crescent rolls
* 8 large marshmallows
* margarine/butter
* cinnamon
* granulated sugar

Directions:
* Heat oven to 350 degrees
* Grease 8 cups in a muffin pan. Do not use papers as this doesn't turn out quite right that way.
* Prepare a cinnamon and sugar mixture to your taste. I do equal parts cinnamon and equal parts sugar but I really like cinnamon.
* Melt your butter or margarine. Usually 4 tablespoons is enough to work with.
* Unroll each crescent roll and lay them out neatly within easy reach.
* Coat each large marshmallow in butter and then roll them in your cinnamon and sugar mixture.
* Place the covered marshmallow inside the crescent roll and roll it shut. I like to pinch all the edges together and seal the marshmallow in so less is likely to "ooze" out while baking. Then put each roll in a greased cup of the muffin pan.
* Bake until crescent rolls have turned slightly golden just like if you were baking the crescent rolls alone. It usually takes about ten minutes.

I've made this so many times I can't even count. It's easy and cheap too, so that's an added bonus. : )

You can also drizzle them with a powdered sugar, milk, vanilla glaze, but they taste good plain as well.

Got this one from a good friend, it's a staple at our Christmas Eve dinner table now.
Quiche Antipasto

2 packages (8 each) refrigerated crescent rolls
1/4 pound provolone cheese slices
1/4 pound Swiss cheese slices
1/4 pound baked ham slices
1/4 pounc hard salami slices
1 jar (24 oz) roasted red peppers, drained (or use 3-4 fresh roasted peppers)
3 large eggs
1/4 cup Parmesan cheese
1/8 teaspoon black pepper

Lightly grease a 9x13 pan or coat with cooking spray. Unroll 1 package of rolls and cover the
bottom of the pan, pressing perforations to seal. Layer one layer of cheese, covering all the
dough, then layer the second cheese over the first. Next lay ham over the cheese; cover with
salami. Lay peppers flat over salami.

Mix eggs, Parmesan and pepper together. Pour 3/4 of the mixture over the peppers.

Unroll the remaining can of rolls over the top of the peppers and eggs mixture (press perforations
to seal). Stretch dough to cover peppers.

Brush the top of the dough with the remaining egg mixture. Cover the pan with foil and bake 30
minutes at 350 degrees. Remove foil and bake an additional 10-15 minutes or until top is golden
brown. Remove from oven and cool slightly before cutting.

Chessy Ham Puffs

1 c. Shredded Swiss cheese (I've even made them with Shredded Sharp Cheddar)
1 c. cooked ham, diced
1 egg
8 - oz tube refrigerated crescent rolls


In a medium mixing bowl, combine the first 3 ingredients. Roll out dough and cut into 12 small squareds that will fit inside mini muffin tin cups. Lightly oil muffin cups and press the square piece of dough into each. Spoon cheese mixture into the center of each dough square. Bake at 350 degrees for 10 minutes or until a knife inserted comes out clean.
