- 8 oz cream cheese, softened

- 1/2 t pepper
- 2-3 chicken breasts, cooked and shredded
- 3 tubes refrigerated crescent rolls

- Roll out crescent rolls.
- Place ~1 to 1/2 T chicken mixture into the center of a crescent and wrap it up, sealing the edges.
- Roll the hamster in breadcrumbs.
- Place on cookie sheet.
- Bake at 375° for about 20 minutes.
Serve with the following gravy:
- 1 can Cream of Chicken Soup
- 1/2 can milk
- 2 t beef bouillon
- In a sauce pan, mix soup, milk and bouillon together.
- Cook on stoptop until hot, stirring occasionally.

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!
