I’m not really sure where this recipe came from, my mom made it when I was growing up and I’ve fixed it many times for my family. It’s very easy, feeds 4 people, and costs about $10.00 to make. You make the “ring” and then you can serve it with any toppings or sides that you like. This would make a great appetizer too, I think this might be how this recipe originated, but it makes a very good and filling dinner which is how me & my family like to eat it!
What you need;
1 pound ground beef (or use ground turkey)
1 packet taco seasoning mix
2 cans of crescent rolls
1 cup of shredded cheddar cheese
Any toppings you desire…..lettuce, black olives, tomatoes, cheese, salsa, sour cream, hot sauce, avocado, etc, etc
How to make;
Start browning the ground beef, while it’s browning, pre-heat your oven to the temperature on the crescent roll package. Unroll the crescent dough and lay it out on a greased, round baking sheet like this….
Press the seams together and bake in the preheated oven for 5 minutes, remove from the oven and set aside. This step should not be skipped, if you do not pre-bake the crescents, there may be gooey, un-cooked crescent pieces at the end.
Once the ground beef is browned, drain it and return to the pan. Mix in the packet of taco seasoning and 1/4 cup of water (you don’t want this mixture runny) and a cup of shredded cheese. Scoop spoonful’s of the ground beef mixture onto the widest part of the crescent ring. Once all the meat is transferred to the ring, fold the skinny end of the crescent over the ground beef and tuck under. Do this all the way around creating a ring. Bake for an additional 8-10 minutes until the ring is lightly brown and the crescents are cooked. Serve with your favorite toppings and sides and enjoy!
