Sloppy Joe Squares Recipe

For dinner tonight, I made Sloppy Joe Squares. I found this recipe last year on the Pillsburry website. It is very easy, everyone likes it & it freezes well! When I do freeze this recipe, I divide it in half making two meals! :)

Sloppy Joe Squares

1 lb lean (at least 80%) ground beef

1 can (16 oz) sloppy joe sauce

2 cans Pillsbury refrigerated Big & Buttery Crescent Dinner Rolls (10.1 oz each)

2 cups shredded cheddar cheese (8 oz)

1 T sesame seed (opional)

1. Heat oven to 350 degrees F. In 10-inch skillet, cook beef over medium heat 8-10 minutes, stirring occasionally, until thoroughly cooked; drain. Stir in sauce. Heat to boiling, stirring occasionally.

2. Unroll 1 can of the dough; place in ungreased 13x9-inch (3qt) glass baking dish. Press in bottom & 1/2-inch up sides of dish. Spread beef mixture over dough; sprinkle with cheese. Unroll second can of dough; place over cheese. Sprinkel with sesame seed.

3. Bake 30-35 minutes or until mixture is bubbly & dough is golden brown. Cut into squares to serve.

**When I freeze this recipe, I freeze after Step 2. I do not bake the dish until after I take it out of the freezer & let it thaw.**

  1. Good God! How have I missed this recipe for so long? Don't have "Pillsbury refrigerated Big & Buttery Crescent Dinner Rolls" in my part of the world as far as I know, so a reasonable substitute will need to be found. 'Cause I want to eat this.
