thankfully these turned out- in fact, they turned out wicked & i've been patting my back ever since.
Cheesy Mashed Potato Crescent Pockets
1 roll of crescent rolls (i used the big & flaky ones)
1 heavy cup of leftover mashed potatoes (mine were already buttered & seasoned)
2 slices of American cheese
1 1/2 cups shredded cheese (i used Monterey jack)
3/4 container Tomato & Basil Cooking Creme
smoked paprika, salt & pepper
Directions: Pre heat the oven to 375. Spray a casserole dish with cooking spray.
Mix together the mashed potatoes & 3/4 cup shredded cheese.
Unroll the can of crescent rolls & split into 4 large rectangles (pinch seams together)
Evenly spoon the potato/cheese mix between the 4 rectangles & season with the spoked paprika, salt & pepper. Then top each with 1/2 slice of American cheese.
Roll & pinch the dough to form a fat little packet & place the 4 packets in the baking dish.
Spread the Tomato & Basil Cooking Creme over the top of each packet.
Then sprinkle with the remaining shredded cheese.
bake (un covered) in the oven for 25-30 min.
remove & let sit for about 3 min or so (just to let it set)
Then dish out & enjoy.
Seriously you guys- these things are fabulous. Cheesy & creamy & doughy.
You can also change them up by making your own cooking creme or using different flavors.
You can also stuff them with some meat or vegetables- there's a reason i always keep crescent rolls on hand!
