Crescent Mac and Cheese Bites

Total Time

Prep/Total Time: 30 min.


8 servings

My kids love macaroni and cheese, and they love crescent rolls. With the help of my daughter Lula, I decided to put the two together in one yummy recipe. They are perfect either as an appetizer for adults (who love them, too) or as an entree for the little ones. —Suzanne Gerrety, Jacksonville, Florida
