this recipe. I already had a package of crescent rolls and was about to head out for my walk to the farmer's market and trip to the grocery store. So I picked up some more crescents at Trader Joe's.
I liberally adjusted this recipe because I only had about 40 minutes, a few items, and I was tired. Had a SPLITTING headache most of the day, and napped to recover.
Sweet potato appetizers: (makes 16)
1-2 cups diced sweet potato
1 small onion, chopped
1 Tbsp olive oil
salt and pepper
sharp cheddar cheese
2 packages cresent rolls
Saute the onion in olive oil a few minutes until softening. Add the diced sweet potato (I diced this very fine, 1/2 inch x 1/4 inch pieces). I cooked this about 10 minutes on low-medium, covered, then increased the heat to brown the pieces a bit. Salt and pepper to taste.
When the filling is ready, open the crescent packages. Break into 4 pieces. Press the diagonal seams so that you have 4 rectangles. Cut each in half crosswise and press out to 4 inch square. Spoon filling into each square. Place a thin slice of cheddar on top. Fold up the corners and twist into a little "purse".
Bake about 15 min at 350F. Enjoy!
