Recipe #5 - Another Good One! :)

This past week, I tried out another new recipe. This is #5 for me this year....halfway to my goal of trying out 10 new recipes for 2010. Yay! :)

I found this one on the Pillsbury website. They've got a lot of good, easy recipes. I can't wait to try out some of their baked goods...they all look so yummy! This was a breeze to make, and my family loved it.

My little sister ate with us when I made this, so it fed my family of 4, plus my sister, plus I had 2 servings left over. I had my hubby take these 2 extra servings to his grandparents' house so that they could have lunch the next day. We had Van's uncle's funeral on Thursday, so I wanted to give Van's grandmother a break from having to worry about a meal.

Here ya go!

Crescent-topped Burger Bake:

1 1/2 lb. lean ground beef
1/4 cup chopped onion
3 cups frozen seasoned chunky-style hash-brown potatoes (from 28-oz. pkg.)
1 bag (12 oz) Green Giant® Valley Fresh Steamers™ frozen mixed vegetables
2 (12-oz.) jars beef gravy
1 (8-oz.) can Pillsbury® Refrigerated Crescent Dinner Rolls

1. Heat oven to 375°F. In 12-inch skillet or Dutch oven, brown ground beef and onion over medium heat until beef is thoroughly cooked, stirring frequently. Drain.
2. Add potatoes, mixed vegetables and gravy; mix well. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium; cover and cook 8 to 10 minutes or until vegetables are tender, stirring occasionally.
3. Spoon hot beef and vegetable mixture into ungreased 2 1/2 to 3-quart shallow casserole or 13x9-inch (3-quart) baking dish. Separate crescent dough into 8 triangles. Place triangles over hot mixture with points in center and wide ends around outer edge of casserole.
4. Bake at 375°F. for 14 to 17 minutes or until crescents are golden brown and mixture is bubbly around edge.

This is a great, home-cooked tasting, hearty, fill-you-up meal. Another great thing about it is...you don't necessarily have to make any side dishes or anything to go with it since it contains so many veggies, meat, and bread. Enjoy!
