cheddar puffsThis recipe utilizes one of my favorite low-cal, very versatile products!  The reduced fat crescent rolls by Pillsbury.  And no, they didn’t pay me to say that!

First things first, you need to unroll your crescent rolls and cut into triangles, you should get 3 triangles per roll.  There are 8 rolls in a can, so this will give you 24 pieces total.
