This sounds excellent, but I haven't tried the casserole yet. I have, however, tried the Sloppy Joes and they are fabulous (it's a modified version of My Family's Favorite Sloppy Joes). The original recipe for the crescent casserole simply called for a package of the sloppy joe mix which would be prepared according to instructions on the package, but now that I've had home made Sloppy Joes I don't want to go back to the packaged stuff.
- 2 (8 ounce) packages refrigerated crescent dinner rolls
- 1 1⁄2 lbs hamburger
- 3⁄4 cup green pepper, diced
- 3⁄4 cup onion, diced
- 3⁄4 cup ketchup
- 3⁄4 cup barbecue sauce
- 1 1⁄2 teaspoons brown sugar
- 2 teaspoons mustard
- 1 1⁄2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
- 1 1⁄2 tablespoons vinegar
- 1 cup mozzarella cheese, grated
- 1 cup cheddar cheese, grated
- Brown the hamburger, green pepper and onion; drain fat.
- Stir in the remaining ingredients.
- Simmer, covered, 15-20 minutes, stirring occasionally.
- Cook, uncovered, until it’s the consistency you like.
- Place 1 package rolls flat in bottom of 9 inch baking pan; seal perforations.
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
- Cover with hamburger mixture.
- Top with cheeses.
- Place second package of rolls on top of cheese; seal those perforations.
- Bake for 30 minutes.
I liked this alot, though the kids found it a bit spicy.... I'll definately try and make this again though I'll have to try and cut doen on the "spice" factor a bit. It may have been the Worcestershire sauce they didn't like, theough the vinegar cut that down nicely. This was a quick to make meal, as I had some precooked ground beef in the frezzer.
