This recipe is a favorite of my friend Bevrs on the IBS boards. She says it's like the best cheeseburger you've ever had. I'm storing it here so I don't lose it. It looks like total comfort food! Use the turkey and Reduced Fat Crescent Rolls to make this decently healthy, and the soy cheese to make it dairy-free.
- 1 lb ground turkey or 1 lb ground beef
- 1⁄4 cup finely chopped onion
- 3⁄4 cup barbecue sauce
- 6 slices cheese (Cheddar or American) or 6 slices soy cheese (Cheddar or American)
- 2 (8 ounce) cans refrigerated crescent dinner rolls or 2 (8 ounce) cans refrigerated reduced-fat crescent rolls
- 2 teaspoons toasted sesame seeds
- Brown meat and onion; stir in barbecue sauce and set aside.
- Heat oven to 375.
- Unroll crescent dough into four long rectangles on Pam-sprayed cookie sheet. Overlap long sides; firmly press perforations and edges to seal. Pat to form a 15x13-inch rectangle.
- Spread meat mixture lengthwise, in a 4-inch wide strip, down center of dough to within 1 inch of ends. Top meat with cheese slices.
- Fold shorter sides of dough 1-inch over filling. Bring long sides of dough rectangle over filling, overlapping edges; pinch edge to seal. Sprinkle with sesame seeds.
- Bake at 375 for 20-25 minutes or until golden brown. Let stand 5 minutes.
This was really easy to throw together. I used ground turkey. Chopped a whole small onion, added a clove of garlic, a scant 3/4 cups bbq sauce, and just sprinkled on some grated cheddar cheese rather than use slices, but basically I followed the recipe. I thought it was just ok, but Dh and dd absolutely loved it, and even Mr. Picky tried it, which is high praise indeed.
I had to give this 5 stars because DH keeps asking me to make it again! I added garlic and some crushed red peppers to the meat, along with diced onions as recommended by another reviewer. I also used pepper-jack cheese slices. The BBQ sauce adds a nice flavor, without looking like there's BBQ sauce in it. Really good. Next time I'll try some reduced-fat slices. Thank you for posting!
These went down a treat. I added a whole (chopped) small onion - I'm not much for measuring, and 2 cloves of garlic as well. The bbq sauce added a nice sweet/sour/spicy touch. Very easy to make - too easy to eat. Kids loved it.
