Taco Roll-Ups

Good morning! It seems as my successes in cooking and baking add up, so does my list of "I want/need to try that". In fact, I tried four new recipes yesterday and they all were definite keepers. Not only is my family eating better, but I am having so much fun too!

These roll-ups lasted about 5 minutes. If you like tacos, this is a neat way to add a twist (literally) to your menu.

1 lb. ground beef
1 envelope taco seasoning
2/3 cup water
1 lb. frozen bread dough, thawed
2 cups grated medium cheddar cheese

Brown ground beef. Drain. Add taco seasoning and water. Simmer for 5 - 10 minutes. Remove from heat and allow to cool.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Roll thawed dough into a long rectangle, about 20 x 8 inches.

Spread ground beef over dough, leaving about 1 inch of dough on each long side free of filling. Top with grated cheese. Roll up as for cinnamon rolls, starting with the long edge closest to you. Pinch seam to seal.

Slice the roll into 1 inch thick slices with a serrated knife. Place rolls 2 inches apart onto a cookie sheet that has been sprayed with cooking spray.

If any filling falls out, just press it into the top of the rolls. Bake at 350 degrees for about 25 minutes or until golden brown.

Serve warm with salsa or sour cream for dipping. Yum!
