Crescent Cheesy Puffs are a great addition to your holiday table.

The season of good food is upon us. With Thanksgiving just around the corner and Christmas following quickly on its heels, thoughts of cooking -- and eating -- are on everyone’s mind. It is always so much fun to have a brand new, but tried-and-true, recipe to take to holiday parties or to serve at home when guests arrive.

These Crescent Cheesy Puffs are a hit every time I serve them. Starting off your holiday party with these bite-size treats gets everything off to a good start. If cooking for a crowd, figure four appetizers per person.

Crescent Cheesy Puffs

1 pkg. crescent dinner rolls ( 8 oz.)

1 brick Monterey Jack or Mozzarella cheese ( 8 oz.)

1/2 cup Italian salad dressing

1/2 cup seasoned bread crumbs (finely crushed)

1/2 to 3/4 cup Parmesan cheese, grated

Cut cheese into 24 cubes. Unroll crescent rolls. Wrap each cube of cheese into 1/3 of a crescent dough triangle. Wrap and seal.

Dip the sealed ball into Italian dressing. Roll in the bread crumbs and then in Parmesan cheese.

Place in greased mini-muffin pans. Bake for 15 minutes at 375 degrees.
