I will start by saying that I am not a baker, not by a long shot. On those very rare occasions that I want one of these decadent items from Panera, they are always out. They make one of each in the morning and once they are gone, they are gone. I rarely want one, but when I do... I DO! And it's even more rarely that I actually get one.

So... I'm on a quest to make this at home. My favorite is the 4-cheese, which according to the ingredient list has white cheddar, romano, parmesan and Neufchâtel cheeses. I do like quiche and soufflé, so I think have figured out the filling by trial, error and looking at copycat recipes online.

The crust is the tricky part. It's not quite a puff pastry. It is more of a croissant. It is NOT the pillsbury crescent rolls. That was an epic disaster of taste and texture.

Any thoughts on using the Trader Joe's frozen croissant dough to try to make these? I wonder exactly how, not being a baker and not understanding rising, dough handling, etc.

Here is a link to the nutrition information on the soufflé:
