Potato Packets

I tried another recipe from the Pillsbury.com website using those wonderful Crescent dinner rolls. We really liked these little guys. The recipe was easy and they were so tasty. Give them a try.
1 pouch (3.3 oz) Betty Crocker Cheddar and Sour Cream Instant mashed potatoes (don't tell Betty, but I used another brand that was on sale, and it worked just as well )
1 3/4 cup hot water (microwave it)
1 3oz pkg. cream cheese
3/4 cup finely chopped ham (I just used a few slices of ham lunch meat)
1/4 cup crumbled bacon (honestly, I don't think you need both the bacon and the ham, so if you don't have it, don't stress)
2 medium green onion, chopped
1/4 cup (more or less) shredded cheddar cheese
1 can Pillsbury refrigerated crescent dinner rolls
1 T. butter, melted
1 tsp. Tabasco sauce

In a large bowl, mix the potatoes and hot water. Add cream cheese. Beat well until blended. Stir in the ham, bacon, onions, and cheddar cheese.
Separate the crescent dough into 8 triangles. Spray a cookie sheet. Divide the potatoes onto the 8 eight crescents, then stretch dough to encase the potatoes in each one.
Mix together the butter and tabasco sauce and brush over the tops of the packets. Bake at 375 for 10-12 minutes or until golden brown.
