I love creating recipes that are quick and easy to prepare during the work week and even for group gatherings.
This is a very simple ground meat recipe. It does not matter what type of ground meat used. I have made this recipe with beef, pork, veal, lamb and venison. The following recipe is basic for 4 servings, you can adjust accordingly to accommodate 4 to 40 or more.
Country Meat Rollups
1.5 pound ground meat
1 medium size onion (chopped)
1 can of sliced mushrooms
2 cloves of garlic(minced)
1 cup of sour cream
1 egg (beaten)
1 egg separated (make egg wash with white and add egg yolk to the beaten egg)
1 package of Crescent Rolls
1 can cream of mushroom soup
Brown the ground meat, onions, mushrooms and garlic till meat is no longer pink. Set aside to cool.
Take the Crescent Rolls, pull the rolls apart and then roll each one out as large as you can.
Once the meat mixture has cooled, add 1/2 cup of sour cream and the beaten egg, Mix well.
Now take a scoop of the meat mixture(approximately large egg in size) place this in center of each rolled out Crescent Roll. Once this is complete take each Crescent Roll and roll it around the meat mixture, complete seal the meat inside the roll.
Place rolls on a cooking sheet sprayed with cooking spray. Take the egg wash and brush over each roll.
Bake at 350 for approximately 15 -20 minutes rolls should be nice and brown.
While the rolls are baking, take the can of Cream of Mushroom soup and mix with remaining 1/2 cup of sour cream. Heat the soup mixture and serve as a sauce on the rolls.
Variations for this recipe: I have also taken French Onion Soup and Golden Mushroom soup together to create a sauce. I have also used Ready to Bake Bread dough for a large rollup for a group of 8-10. I let the dough thaw over night in frig. I then roll out the bread dough to the size of a cookie sheet. Place the meat mixture in the center of the dough and rollup. Bake this for 30-40 minutes.
I hope you enjoy this simple recipe. I have gotten so many compliments over the years. Enjoy and Bon Appetite!
