I have no idea if these are an actual food with an actual name, but we just call them "Pillsbury Sandwiches" at our house!

You're gonna need:
2 tubes of Pillsbury croissant rolls (we're bad... we like the extra buttery, extra flaky kind)
Various deli meat & cheese or other filler (we like to make "baked mac&cheese sandwiches")
Shredded cheese

What you need to do:
Preheat the oven to the temp on the croissants.
Spray/line a cookie sheet.
Unroll 1 tube of pillsbury croissants... so they're laying flat on the baking sheet.
Pinch together the areas where they are precut to be croissants... so you have a 1 big dough piece.
Put ingredients in! Leave about a 1/2" border around the edges.
Unroll the other tube, pinch together seams, and lay it on top of your meat&cheese and pinch together the whole outside edges.
Now it's a giant, rectangle calzone!
Sprinkle shredded cheese on top and bake!
(just follow the croissant baking instructions or eyeball it)

When it's done, let it cool and then cut with a pizza cutter!!

***Please note, the one in my photo is a mini one... it's just 2 croissants on the bottom and 2 on the top, made into a pocket.

EDIT! My friend told me that this is very similar to something they made as kids and he said his mom used a fork to "pinch" together the outside seam so it made a decorative edge! Definitely gonna try it that way next time!

We've made broccoli and cheese, pepperoni pizza, mac and cheese (which I mentioned), spinach and grilled chicken "panini's", and other random sandwiches with leftovers!

You are evil. I love you.

I went to the grocery store and got some crescent rolls and these are so good. I bought the reduced fat ones so I could pretend it was better for me.

They were on sale and I got a couple butter flake, a couple reduced fat (which I tried, yum!) and one original. So I can, you know, make an informed decision Wink Plus I will make these for my brother and he will not eat reduced fat!

PS, if you have Albertson's they are on sale for $1.69 a tube for PIlsbury this week (even cheaper than house brand). There was a sign up saying if you bought five you got free butter, which is why I bought five. Turns out they forgot to take the sign down from the sale last week, but the manager still gave me the butter! Good customer service!

MacesMeMe - I'm sure I've told you this, but I LOVE your boxer! (See my icon, I'm a pretty big boxer fan myself, lol) And they are so super easy! One of my favorite "go to" meals because we always have things to stuff our sandwiches with. I'm a nanny and it's hard to find easy meals that everyone likes. Plus, it's so easy that the kids can all help me prepare it... and we all know how much kids love to help!

MareMare- We have Albertson's sister company here, Jewel... and they're almost always overpriced =(
But thanks for the tip!!

Twylag- Not gonna lie, salad and rice sounds pretty good right now... at this particular moment, it's looking like pizza for us.

Craftyredhead- Slightly off topic, but I was recently served an apparently local treat... drunken weenies! (pigs in a blanket, style) they were weenies soaked in different alcohol/barbecue sauce combos... surprisingly very tasty! **Credit where credit is due: Duncan's Drunken' Weenies are in Joliet, Illinois***

I know, I usually don't shop there, but I was going out for only crescent rolls lol! I checked the grocery ads before I left and they were on sale there.

I'm making more of these right now for dinner for my mom...tuna melt version!  Wink

MareMare- My husband would gladly join you for the tuna, since I really don't like seafood, lol!

CraftyDeJa- I loooove them the next day. After they have fully cooled, they take on a better form, I think. A couple seconds in the microwave and you're back in business! I just pop them in the fridge, no freezer.

McJulie-O- Oh, good news! You must not have heard, but calories taken in during November and December don't count!

Snips and snails he is actually an Olde English Bulldog, but I do think you have told me before, hehe! He looks a lot like a boxer marking wise but his full wide (getting wider with old age) you can see he's not.  And when I see your avatar the one in the back reminds me of him.

Coralia- I just recently learned of Runza's! and I believe these are quite similiar... but I've never been to Nebraska and I've never heard of a ruzna (I think Im missing out!!)

MacesMeMe- The second dog in my pic is totally an olde english! His name is Brutus, lol. They do look like very similar breeds, the boxer being much taller (in our case, at least) And that picture of him? TOO CUTE!

Zombiekilla- Thanks for the picture!! I bet it was awesome "canadian bacon ala pizza", lol.

Muria & Kjlutz - Leftovers = great combos. nuff' said! (Last year there was a turkey and stuffing sandwich created by my little sister, soooo yummy!)

I make ham and cheese sandwiches like this...
I place a small piece of cheese in the center of a slice of ham, and roll up burrito style so the cheese is enclosed. Then roll your ham tube up inside one crescent and bake. Because you only use one crescent per 'sandwich' they're the right size for the kids, and you can eat them with your hands... and the cheese doesn't melt out because you wrap it in the ham.

Now I'm hungry.

My local grocery store was making a version of these just this week.  Instead of baking one giant beast, they divided the dough into smaller rectangles and cooked them in a frying pan like grilled cheese sandwiches.  Delicious.

I used to make something quite similar to this, but instead of layering 2 pieces of dough I would roll one (with the fillings inside) and slice into little rounds. They were great as hors d'oeuvres!
