Crescent Roll Goodness

The days have seemed to becoming more busy as the semester approaches. Because of this, and some work potlucks, I have been busy doing some quick and cheap cooking. Crescent rolls are perfect for both of these. I love crescent rolls and you can use them for any course. Here are a few of my favorite easy recipes:

Crescent Roll Taco Bake

1 lb. Ground Beef
2 packages of Crescent Rolls
Cheddar Cheese
1 Package Taco Seasoning

Step 1: Brown ground beef. Add taco seasoning. 
Step 2: While beef is browning, prepare your crescent rolls. Spread crescent rolls in pie or square pan. See picture above. 
Step 3: Spread ground beef over the crescent rolls. Add desired amount of cheese on top.
Step 4: Wrap crescent rolls over the meat and cheese. TIP: don't overlap crescent rolls too much or they won't cook all the way through. 
Step 5: Cook at 350 degrees for about 10-15 minutes depending. The top should be golden brown. If you take it out too soon, you will find that some of the crescent rolls may not have cooked all the way through. 
Step 6: Add desired toppings to the piece of crescent roll taco bake. 
Step 7: Enjoy! :)
