Cream Cheese Puff Rolls

Oh yes, another recipe so soon. This one is adapted from my college days. One of my roommates made these, and I'm pretty sure they're one of the main reasons why I gained ten pounds. Going by this recipe, I'd estimate these to be about 180-200 calories each without chicken. If you DO add chicken to make this a fun meal, they'll be about 250 calories each. Two of them are pretty filling.

What's fun is that you can get creative with what you put inside. Make the taste completely different by putting a different chunk of cheese in the middle, or make it healthier with veggies in the middle.

Cream Cheese Puff Rolls

- 8 oz. lite cream cheese, soft
- 1 package Pillsbury rolls of your choice - I used Grands Original
- 1/2 c. bread crumbs
- 1/3 c. almond milk
- 1 T herbs providence (or basil or any garnish on top you'd like for a hint of extra flavor)
- [optional] 4-6 oz. shredded chicken

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Take each roll one by one, and flatten them out to pancake thickness. Place a dollop of cream cheese in the center of each one, and seal it inside the roll, making a puffy ball shape. [If you're adding chicken, mix it in a bowl with the cream cheese, then enclose in rolls.]
2. Place almond milk and bread crumbs in separate bowls. Take each roll and roll it around in the almond milk. Then, roll it around in the bread crumbs until completely covered. Place roll on ungreased baking sheet and repeat. Sprinkle herbs providence (or garnish of your choice) on top of each roll. You can also mix in the herbs with the bread crumbs.
3. Bake rolls for 10-15 minutes, until golden brown, or until the recommended time on the Pillsbury container you chose.
4. Eat. Say "mmm."
