there is a chicken jalapeno version of these on the pillsbury website that i love!!!! i left out the cilantro in that recipe and used canned shredded chicken - yummy. don't refrdigerate well - nothing withe cooked pillsbury dough does :(
Pretty, and probably would've been great if they weren't so salty. It just killed the flavor for me. Next time I'll try salami and mozzarella and see how they come out, I guess.
Five stars because it was yummy, inexpensive, and soooo easy to make! The first time I made it, I used dried basil since I didnt have fresh and added spinach for color. I tried it again with the fresh basil and it was equally as good, so you have a lot of flexibility here! Everyone loved them!
I added salami to this recipe and substituted mozzarella cheese for the feta and it was a big hit to dip in marinara sauce.
These were positively DELICIOUS! I used a crescent roll sheet, deli thin shaved honey ham, the whole container of cheese (5oz.) and dried basil. I made 1 log and cut this in 12 pieces. Excellent recipe! Tasted much like pizza without the sauce.
These were delicious and easy. The saltiness of the feta combined with the fresh basil and olive oil really is reminiscent of "mediterranean" or greek. Don't skimp on the basil, it's key to the flavor. They're flaky and tender, and the filling just melts in your mouth. Next time, I will add some chopped sun dried tomato to the filling, not only to enhance taste but to give this appetizer a little pop of color. Best served warm, and they reheat well. This is a keeper.
We thought these were delicious. I used seasoned feta (containing basil and sun-dried tomatoes) and thought that additional sun-dried tomatoes would be an excellent addition in the future. However, I have to knock off a star for 2 reasons. #1. It would be extremely hard to get 5 segments from each rectangle; I only got 4, and each of my end pieces was a little skimpy (and I doubled the feta in these). #2. At 375, 16 minutes over-browned mine; I'll use 350 next time. Thanks for the recipe, I'm sure I'll use this, (or some combination of this) again!
Brought to a friend's home and they flew off the plate. Easy to prepare and a definite winner.
