Ask me what "comfort food" is, and this is the first meal that comes to mind.
Easy Cheesy Beefy Crescent Squares.
Just say it a few times. It is so much fun to say.
This is a family favorite. It is not necessarily an exciting meal but it is tasty, easy to make, and just comfort for the soul.
This recipe came from my mom. We had this growing up as a child, so it has been around for a while.
1+ pounds ground beef, browned and drained. I always throw in onion and garlic for a little taste
1 package/roll of crescent rolls
1 can cream of mushroom soup
1 package (or two cups) shredded cheddar cheese
Heat oven to 350.
Spray a 9 x 13 pan. Unroll crescent rolls dough into one large rectangle. The original recipe said to go up the sides of the pan but I haven't been overly successful with that. I just make sure to cover the bottom.
Mix the browned ground beef and the can of cream of mushroom soup. Pour mixture over the crescent roll rectangle.
Bake at 350 for 30 minutes. During the last ten minutes, sprinkle cheese over the top and finish baking. (Since I use low fat, this part if important. If I put it on any earlier, it gets too tough.)
To help make a "balanced meal", I threw some carrots and some strawberries on the table to munch on during slow periods. It worked. They are eating up both!
