BEEF Tacos in a Sleeping Bag

Here is a neat idea for a make-ahead and freeze BEEF treat that everyone will love!

2 packages refrigerated crescent roll or biscuit dough
1 lbs. lean ground BEEF
1 package taco seasoning
.5 cup cheddar or mozzarella cheese, shredded
shredded lettuce, tomatoes, sour cream, etc. if desired

Preheat oven to 375ºF. Brown the ground BEEF in a skillet. Drain in a colander and rinse well in hot water to remove fat. Return to skillet. Add taco seasoning; mix well. Unroll crescent rolls or biscuits. Top each piece of dough with approx. 2 TBSP taco meat and a sprinkling of cheese. Roll crescent roll around filling (fold over and pinch edges to seal if using biscuit dough). Place on a baking sheet at bake at 375ºF for 12-15 minutes or until golden brown. Serve with shredded lettuce, chopped tomatoes, and a dollop of sour cream, if desired.

Freezing Directions:
Follow directions as above. When finished baking, allow to cool completely then flash freeze on a cool cookie sheet. When frozen, place in a gallon freezer bag.

To serve: Heat frozen taco rolls in microwave for about a minute or reheat in the oven until heated through.

Servings: 16 rolls
