Holly’s Note:

To freeze:  place unbaked hamsters on a cookie sheet and freeze until firm.  Wrap and store in freezer bags.  To cook frozen hamsters, thaw and bake as directed.

It’s really good for having missionaries over for dinner. If you want to double it, don’t add more cream cheese, it gets runny. Just keep adding veggies and chicken and crescent rolls.

I think my brother-in-law actually came up with the name “Hamsters” because we thought that rolled up, they looked like headless hamsters. Kind of gross, but the name just stuck, at least in our family!
