Easy Ground Beef Roll

READY IN: 1hr 10mins
Recipe by Mandy-H

This is a great recipe that I use often. The kids love it. The ground beef is rolled in a lovely dough. When baked, the dough has a light sconey texture to it. A 'must try' when you are tired of all the stock-standard ground beef options.

I'll review after I make it.
