    Do you have pictues of your food when its done or when your making it so we can see what it looks like…

    I made this for dinner last night and my family loved it. I tweeked it just a bit, I added whole kernel corn and made it on cresent rolls instead (because that is what I had on hand). Very yummy, and so easy! Thanks!

    When you thaw it how long does it take? do you just leave it in the foil and plastic on the counter to thaw?

      I would leave it in the fridge to thaw and then unwrap it when you take it out of the fridge or you will have a mess. Let it rise on the counter.

    You freeze it on a cookie sheet? I have a smaller deep freezer so I don’t have much room for a whole cookie sheet, what do you recommend I can use as well?

    If you go look at the ham & cheese braid recipe, they have images and instructions enough to figure this recipe out. Otherwise this recipe is pretty incoherent.

    I am really happy that I found this site! I am BRAND NEW to freezer cooking (havent even done 1 meal yet!) and I really want to try this recipe. Can you tell me….do you use homemade dough that you have frozen or the dough that can be bought at the store frozen? Would either work?
