“This is my version of a Pillsbury recipe. I just think they are better if you add the cheese after partially baked and not at the beginning. When I made it the cheese was over-baked and hard. I also tried them with Bulls-eye BBQ sauce and the Open Pit was liked much more. I made them for my neice and nephews for one of their birthdays and this recipe has been a staple in their house also. Good for kids, but I like them too.”
