It’s time for the next installment of “Cooking with Courtney” where I teach my newly married daughter how to cook! Yesterday it was this Pampered Chef recipe which I’ve been making since my kids were a lot smaller because they used to really like it. The picture above shows the basic recipe but you can dress it up with all kinds of toppings to make it look even yummier. Haven’t heard back from her as to whether or not Jaren was a fan but how could he not be?
1 1/2 pounds hamburger
1 (1 – 1.25 oz) envelope taco seasoning mix
1 3/4 cups (7 oz) shredded cheddar cheese, divided
2 tablespoons water
1 egg white, lightly beaten
2 (8 oz each) packages crescent rolls
toppings: salsa, lettuce, onion, tomato, olives, sour cream
Heat oven to 375. Cook hamburger. Stir in seasoning, 1 1/2 cups cheese and water. Arrange rolls in sunshine patter on stone (wide end of rolls towards center of pan in overlapping circular pattern with pointy ends pointing out off of stone). Scoop filling onto large ends of rolls. Pull tips of rolls over filling to make ring (make sure you secure the pointy end under wide end so it doesn’t come up during baking). Brush tops with egg and then top with remaining cheese. Bake 25 – 30 minutes or until golden brown.
