Sloppy Joe Pizza Rolls Recipe

Let me start off with a big WELCOME to the new WhitneyBond.com! I’m so excited that you’re here 🙂

If you’ve been visiting LittleLeopardBook.com for the last 4 years you might have noticed that over the weekend the website began redirecting all LLB links to WhitneyBond.com and the header on the website changed from “LittleLeopardBook.com – Cooking Secrets of Whitney Bond” to “WhitneyBond.com – Traditional Recipes With A Bond Girl Twist!

I wrote a post last week talking all about the rebranding and I’m so excited that it’s all happening now!

Just in case you missed the post, don’t worry, nothing is changing except for the name! You can still expect delicious new recipes coming at you every week on WhitneyBond.com, starting with these scrumptious Sloppy Joe Pizza Rolls, combining two of my childhood favorites!

This recipe took a couple of tries to perfect (you’ll see three lessons I learned throughout the recipe post!), but was well worth the time and effort to make it an absolutely amazing first recipe post on the new WhitneyBond.com!

Pumpkin Filled Pastries

Pumpkin Filled PastriesThey’re pastries, they’re filled with pumpkin…. they’re amazing!

I was originally inspired to create this delicious breakfast treat when my bestie Amy (fabulous fashion blogger!) said “You have to try the pumpkin filled croissants at Starbucks!” I was immediately on board with this, but when I arrived at my beloved downtown Starbucks, there were no pumpkin filled croissants, only pumpkin muffins, scones and bread.

I then remembered one of my favorite breakfast treats of all time…. Blueberry Pastry Delights and thought “I could basically do the same thing, but with pumpkin instead of blueberries.”  Two weeks later, here we are… sitting in the middle of Pumpkin Pastry heaven!

When I decided to serve Mexican food for my one year blog anniversary dinner I knew I had to stick with this cuisine throughout the whole meal, including the dessert.  So instead of baking a one year anniversary cake, I went with one year anniversary nutmeg and cream cheese stuffed sopapillas complemented by a delicious side of homemade coffee ice cream.

The result was an entire house that smelled like cinnamon heaven and a sweet, creamy, delicious dessert!

Crescent rolls, cream cheese, cinnamon, nutmeg, vanilla, sugar, butter

Ingredients

  • 2 8 oz packages cream cheese
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 2 tbsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp nutmeg
  • 1 tbsp vanilla
  • 2 8 oz packages crescent rolls
  • 3 tbsp butter (melted)
  • 1/4 cup honey (not pictured/for topping)

Start by adding the cream cheese, 1/2 cup sugar, 1 tbsp cinnamon, nutmeg and vanilla in a large mixing bowl.

Use beaters to mix well. Roll out the Crescent roll dough and separate into the 4 perforated rectangles in each can using your fingers to press together the two triangles.

Taco Ring with a Twist

This 45 Minute Taco Ring Recipe combines colorful bell peppers and red onions with taco seasoned ground beef and cheddar cheese inside a crescent roll crust.

Crescent Roll Taco Ring

Yes, yes, yes!  I’ve never been so excited to not be doing homework, but instead to be doing my new favorite thing, blogging!!! I have 5 words of advice for all of you in the blogging world… NEVER TAKE AN ONLINE CLASS!!!!! I’m serious, you’re basically saying, I would like to teach myself the entire subject of ___________(fill in the blank) and then do the readings and homework as well! So just don’t do it to yourselves, I beg of you, you will regret it!  Ok, I’ve warned you, I feel like I’ve done my civic duties for the day, and if that wasn’t enough now I’m also going to share with you my yummy dinner recipe from tonight! Aren’t I just the best??!!

Crescent Roll Taco Ring with a Twist

So today’s recipe comes from a childhood favorite of mine. When I was probably 11 or 12 years old my Mom took me to a Pampered Chef party (and people wonder why I love cooking so much!) and we made a taco ring recipe, it instantly became a fav at the Bond household of picky eaters.

Southwest Taco Ring Recipe

Yes, growing up I took after my Mom and her horrible pickiness in food. There is no greater person in the world than my Mom, but there’s gotta be something a little weird about you if you don’t like food 😉 Luckily after moving across the country to the West Coast and into the land of fresh veggies, fruits and fish I broadened my horizons and now love every aspect of food, from shopping for it, to cooking it, to eating it (that part is probably my favorite!) Although most of my recipes I post are somewhat new or innovative, I like to throw in an old classic here and there as well, ie. the taco ring of today! I added some peppers and onions to the ground beef to give it a little more flavor and texture (that’s the twist part!)

Taco Ring Ingredients

Ingredients (serves 4)

  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 red onion (chopped)
  • 1 bell pepper (chopped)
  • 1 lb ground beef
  • 2 (8 oz) cans of refrigerated crescent rolls
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1 tbsp homemade taco seasoning
  • 1 tbsp water

Optional Toppings

  • sour cream
  • diced jalapeños
  • salsa

Begin by heating the olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Next, add the bell peppers and onions.

Colorful Bell Peppers and Onions

Sauté for 5 minutes then add the ground beef and brown. In the meantime, pre-heat the oven to 375°.

Taco Ring Ground Beef Filling

Drain the grease from the ground beef, then add the taco seasoning, water and cheese.

Taco Ring Meat Cheese and Seasoning

Now it’s time to form a ring with the crescent rolls!

Start by placing a small glass on the center of a Baking Stone to get that perfect circle in the middle! Next, stagger the crescent rolls around with the wide ends overlapping in the center. Once they’re all on there it should look something like this ↓

Crescent Roll Ring

Next, pile the meaty, cheesy mixture of yummyness onto the crescent roll ring!

How to make the perfect taco ring

Now it’s time to get a little messy, you basically need a system of how to roll the dough up around that mound of meat after removing the glass without it all dumping into the middle.

Bell Pepper Ground Beef Taco Ring Filling

My recommendation: slow and steady! Look at that perfect little middle circle!

Once it’s all rolled up it should look something like this ↓

Now it’s time to pop this baby in the oven. Cook for 20-25 minutes or until golden brown and beautiful.

Bell Pepper Ground Beef Taco Ring

Place a ramekin filled with your favorite optional toppings in the middle such as sour cream topped with tomatoes and jalapeños, salsa or guacamole.
