My husband came up with this last night for dinner. I was making regular shepherds pie and he decided to take over my kitchen and this is what he came up with. The time does not include the cooking time for mash potatoes.
- 8 cups prepared mashed potatoes
- 1 lb ground beef
- 4 cups shredded cheese
- 8 ounces refrigerated crescent dinner rolls (the ones from the store)
- 2 teaspoons seasoning, your choice
- 1 teaspoon of melted real butter
- Cook the ground beef with seasonings.
- Preheat oven according to directions on the crescent package.
- Lay out the crescent rolls and butter the bottom of your baking pan.
- Take the prepared mash potatoes and put a spoonful in the middle of two crescent rolls.
- After draining the ground beef, add some of that to the rolls as well.
- Put cheese on top of this (we added a lot of cheese).
- Fold the sides up and around the mixture.
- brush melted butter on the tops and sides of rolls.
- Place in baking pan.
- Add more cheese to the top.
- Bake in the oven for about 15 -20 minutes until tops are golden brown.
I found the proportions a tad off in this recipe for my family. I elected to cut the amount of potatoes in half and still struggled to get the ingredients rolled into the crescents. I used Montreal seasoning as I was unsure what complete seasoning was. I think this recipe might be a nice jumping off point for a creative cook. Deciding how to change the flavors by adding different seasonings & additional ingredients might be fun. Thank you for sharing your recipe! Reviewed for PAC Spring 2007.
