Crescent Roll Taco Pizza

Crescent Roll Taco Pizza Crescent Roll Taco Pizza

  • 1 tube crescent rolls
  • 1 lb hamburger
  • 1 cup black beans (drained)
  • 1 cup canned diced tomatoes (drained)
  • 2 cups cheese (I used cheddar and mozzarella)
  • taco seasoning

Preheat oven to 350F.

Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil and spray with cooking spray.

Unroll the crescent rolls on the baking sheet. Press together the crescent roll’s seams (very important step! Make sure you seal it well so it won’t break apart, you don’t want your pizza flopping! You can even roll all the dough into a ball then use a rolling pin and roll it out to make sure there are no holes).

Brown hamburger and pre-bake the crust in the oven for 5 mins .

Drain meat, then mix in taco seasoning and make according to package.

Assemble your pizza, spread around the taco meat, black beans & tomatoes then top off with the cheese.

Bake for 15min until the cheese is melted and the crust is light brown

Gobble this up and don’t regret it!! 🙂

Strawberry Cream Cheese Cresents

Here is a recipe I made a while ago for an old blog that some friends started (and is no longer really active). These were so good, we ate them for breakfast but they are deliciously sweet and you can have them for dessert or all day like I’m pretty sure I did 🙂

Ingredients:

1 package of  Crescent Rolls
1/4 cup of Jam (I used Strawberry)
4 oz cream cheese, room temperature
1/4 cup granulated sugar
1/2 tsp lemon juice
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1 egg + 1 tsp of water for egg wash

Directions:

Preheat the oven to 375° and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

In a mixer fitted with a paddle attachment, mix cream cheese, sugar, lemon juice and vanilla. Cream until there are no lumps.

Unroll each crescent roll. On the fattest part of the triangle place 1 tsp on cream cheese mixture and one tsp of jam. Roll into a croissant shape.

Whisk together egg and water for egg wash and brush over each croissant.

Bake for 8-10 minutes until crescents are golden brown and inside is no longer doughy.

EAT & ENJOY!!! (My Favorite part!!!)

Here is the horrible picture, you know, before I was a “pro” at picture taking (pretty sure I still suck but they tend to look a little better than this!)

What are you waiting for,  bake this! You won’t be sorry!

Easy Crescent Danish

Normally my husband A and I only eat cereal for breakfast. Well, I came across this easy danish on Pinterest and figured what the heck lets give it a shot. What do you know we LOVED them! The best part was that it is SUPER EASY! Anyone that knows me knows that I am a simple kind of girl, if a recipe has more than 5 ingredients (not including spices) and more than 10 easy steps then you can forget about it, I am probably not going to be making it!

This recipe was adapted from here:  http://www.foodlushblog.com/2011/02/simple-cream-cheese-danish.html

Since only A & I would be enjoying them, I split the recipe in half. We also used Jelly instead of pie filling.

Ingredients: 1 can crescent rolls, cream cheese, lemon juice, vanilla, sour cream & sugar (and Jelly if you want)

Cream together the cream cheese, sour cream, vanilla, lemon juice & sugar.

Leave the crescent rolls in the shape as they are in the roll, it makes it easier to slice.

I was able to get about 10 slices out of the roll. Then I uses my knucle and indent the middle of each slice to make room for the filling. I put about a tablespoon or so of cream cheese filling into each then put jelly on top of some (I like them plain but A likes them with jelly)

The crescent rolls sliced up (can normally get 10 slices) and indenting the center of the slices to make a spot for the filling

They don’t puff up too much so you can place them all on the same sheet and pretty close together.

After they come out we drizzled some royal icing (powdered sugar, milk & butter) on some of them (this makes it for me but A doesn’t like it, it’s all preference)
