Salmon & Goat Cheese Puffs

Hi Friends!

Today I’ve got some nice little puffs of deliciousness to share with you! These would make a great party appetizer. They’re super easy to make and come together in a flash, especially if you use leftover salmon so it’s already cooked! But even if you have to cook the salmon, they still don’t take long…

These only require a few ingredients. You could add some roasted red peppers if you want to but I didn’t have any on hand and was too lazy to roast one! These could also be made with wonton wrappers, but I like the cresecent roll dough because it stretches more and it’s easier to fit everything inside if you accidentally scoop too much.
