Neat-To-Eat Sloppy Joe Crescents (Pillsbury Bake-Off Finalist)

"This sloppy sandwich is given a new twist when it's baked into a crescent. You can still lick your fingers, but you won't have to wash as many shirts! This was a finalist recipe in Bake-Off #24."

    These were SO GOOD! I only had about 1/4 cup ketchup but I had some honey BBQ sauce on hand so I used that to make 1/2 cup and they were good anyway! But beware these babies are HOT when you get them out of the oven! My 2-1/2 year old burned his tongue on them, I ended up cutting his in bites and letting him eat it with a fork but he still loved it!

    This turned out nicely!! I added BBQ sauce because my husband puts it on everything, but other than that I followed the recipe exactly. Thanks.

    These were very good. (Simple too). The filling was excellent, I wouldn't change a thing. I made them exactly as posted except for 1 thing. I only had garlic flavored crescent rolls so I used them rather than going to the store. Very tasty! Thanks for posting DuChick! Made for 1-2-3 Hit Wonders Tag.

    So sorry to give a low review but considering no one in my family liked them I had to do it. Even my daughter was making faces during dinner. I ended up tossing them and going out for dinner instead.


I am... ~a mother of 2 kids (19 and 22) who are extremely picky eaters. The mere mention of "healthy" sends them running in the opposite direction. They prefer the creamy, cheesy, fried stuff that they weren't brought up on! ~a wife of a wonderful man who fights an expanding waistline and will lovingly eat most anything I set before him. Everything is 5 stars to him. :) He's the easiest customer a cook could ask for! ~a teacher who tends to reach for comfort foods to relieve stress. I am a middle school reading specialist. The miracles I see on a daily basis keeps me going! But it's also stressful, so keep me away from the cookie jar! I really have to fight off the sugary, fat-laden stuff that has no worth beyond the momentary comfort in my mouth. ~and I'm also a daughter who was brought up on home cooked meals back when calories meant nothing and taste was everything! That is an idea built into my system that's hard to shake! My mother raised 8 kids (I'm #7) on her home-cooking and I always teased her that she didn't raise a single skinny kid! I luckily inherited her great love of cooking and baking. (I miss you Mom!) ~finally, I'm "mom" to the best Bichon in the world. He is Quincy, our kid in a dogsuit. He's 13 years old, but still a puppy to us. <img src=> Below are photos I've taken of some of my favorite recipes found on Recipezaar: <embed type="application/x-shockwave-flash" wmode="transparent" src="" height="300" width="400"><a href="" target="_blank"><img src="" style="float:left;border-width: 0;" ></a><a href="¤t=5b275464.pbw" target="_blank"><img src="" style="float:left;border-width: 0;" ></a> <style>body{background:url("");background-repeat:repeat;}</style>
