"Fast, easy, elegant. Great to take to a party. TIP: I freeze the rolls before cutting to make the slices more attractive. Also, smoked Muenster is great if you can find it. I added more green onion. Yummo!!!"

"I regret rating this as just average when everyone seemed to love it, however, I found this appetizer to be very bland and tasteless. The puff pastry has a nice texture, however, when making again, I will definitely add more seasonings to the filling and possibly sausage. Also, when serving, I will add a small dollup of sour cream and french onion dip on the top to give these a little more flavor. I hope this helps someone."
