Ground beef wrapped in crescents gets all spiced up, Jamaican style. Found this on the Pillsbury site recipe by Diane Joyce Phillips from Va. in the 2002 bake-off. We have them a lot down here and I like this crust better - no lard ! This is my first recipe I am at your mercy !

Excellent!! I loved the spice combo! I didn't do the water and breadcrumbs, and I used rolled out Pillsbury Grands Biscuits. I also mixed mango chutney and salsa for the dipping sauce. Super awesome! Thanks for this naughty little pouch of goodness ;)
Very tasty and relatively easy to make. I have never made anything like this before but once I got going it was pretty straight forward. I followed the recipe exactly up to the point of baking. I decided to freeze them, which turned out to be a good idea for later use as an appetizer for Thanksgiving. All I did was fill each one and put them all on a freezer tray. Once frozen, I popped them into a freezer bag and took them out to thaw the morning I intended to cook them. They were very flavourful and served with salsa and sour cream were lovely ! Thank you so much for a recipe I can use over and over !
This made for another great lunch Manami... We really loved it. I did cut recipe in half since we were just two. I only had the Progresso Italian breadcrumbs so I used that but I don't think that made a big difference. But I did find I needed to add a little more water than stated. The flavor of the meat mixture was so yummy !! And the taste of the salsa was absolutely delicious. These were very filling little things. I loved the Pillsbury Crescent rolls, they were just so flaky with this dish. Thanks for sharing a great recipe Manami....I will be having these again. We loved them.
