Tasty Tuesday: Crescent Roll Taco Bake

I'm not going to lie to you and tell you I plan on sharing healthy recipes. I like healthy but sometimes not so healthy is good too. This is ground beef in this image but my sister and I just made this with leftover shredded crockpot chicken and it was fantastic. I really want to make it with Ground Turkey (adding Worcestershire Sauce and Chili Powder to give it that beef likeness) but I'm going to wait awhile as we just had this and I can't see eating it again so soon. Remember not that healthy.

I don't know where my mom got this, likely Pillsbury's site, but it sounded interesting and we decided to steal the recipe. I thought it was delicious but it is really one of those quick meals that you have once in a blue moon. While the majority of ingredients aren't all that bad for you the crescents give it that almost junk food category. Still it is worth a try even if you one have it once.

2 crescent roll tubes
1 LB ground beef (or ground turkey)
1 packet of taco seasoning
1 1/2 cups grated cheddar cheese
Shredded lettuce
1 or 2 diced tomatoes depending on size
1/2 small can sliced olives if desired
Sour cream optional
sliced avocado optional

Mix It Up
Lay out the two tubes of crescent pastry (thick sides in) into a circle. You are essentially making a sun look on a pizza pan. You should have a couple crescent left over for the center. Press together seams in the middle.

Brown beef or turkey and add taco seasoning (to taste).

Lay beef in a circle inside of the laid out crescent rolls in a ring shape. Top meat with cheese.

Pull over crescent rolls and tuck in under meat and cheese.

Follow cook time on the pack of crescent rolls (or however they cook best in your oven).

Add lettuce, tomato, black olives, sour cream or whatever you desire for your tacos, in the middle.

Cut similar to a pizza and serve.
