"Hi Spiritvamp,

The dough is on the bottom, the filling spilled over in the center hiding it. What you're seeing on top is all the glorious cheese.
Hope that helps,

"The picture is very misleading. Recipe calls for the dough on the bottom topped with meat and cheese mixture, but it actually looks like the meat is on the bottom and the dough on top. Guess it go either way?"

"Very quick to make and tasty too! Only change I made was the use of reduced fat crescent rolls for the crust in order to make this a bit healthier. My Family Is NOT a big fan of lettuce as a topping. I served with salsa and no fat sour cream. Delicious!!"

"This was a treat. The combination of the Mexican spice & the sweetness of the crescent dough made this delectable. Didn't want to stop eating."

"A quick and easy meal! I usually substitute refrigerated biscuits or a refrigerated pie crust for the crescent rolls. My family LOVES when I make it!"

"Have been baking this Burrito Bake for several years now(since it appeared in TOH cookbook)--everyone that has tried it loves it-both those preparing and those eating! It is not only tasty, and if you use low-fat ingredients-it is also healthy and sooo easy to prepare!
