As a Kansas native, I must say this recipe is so delicious and I have made it SEVERAL times! Just as good as Beirocks but without all the hassle and time extensive preparation- genius! A couple tweaks, first I used 2 lbs of hamburger meat. I hate recipes that half stuff - what's the point of putting 1/2 lb back in the fridge? The extra meat makes it a fuller casserole and is needed in my opinion. Also, one time I made this and the only crescent rolls I had on hand were the "big and buttery" kind and I will never use the skimpy original crescent rolls again. Big difference, and it was delicious! I like to also half-way cook the bottom layer of crescent rolls first in the oven before adding filling. I add extra onion because my family loves onion and if you cook it down it adds tons of flavor. I also like to hit this recipe heavy with extra pepper and whatever salty seasonings (Jack's Gourmet Seasoning made in Russell, KS) is AMAZING. I literally put it in everything and LOTS of it. Overall this recipe is incredibly easy and it's wonderful every time!
My picky wife requested this , after having making it the first time a few months ago. I have to say, this recipe must be good for her to request it again, and it is. The only tweak I did was add some worcestershire sauce.
Excellent recipe! My whole family loves it, even my picky 3 year old. I have made a different recipe but the carrots and cooking the bottom shell before adding mixture really improved the it. Thank you for your brilliant ideas. This is our favorite meal!
