Prep/Total Time: 30 min.

Ingredients

  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 1/2 cup chopped onion
  • 3 cups frozen chopped broccoli
  • 1 cup (4 ounces) shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 2 tubes (8 ounces each) refrigerated crescent rolls

Directions

Preheat oven to 350°. In a large skillet, cook beef and onion over medium heat 6-8 minutes or until beef is no longer pink, breaking up beef into crumbles; drain. Stir in broccoli, cheese, sour cream, salt and pepper; heat through.
Unroll one tube of crescent dough onto a greased baking sheet; form into a 12x8-in. rectangle, pressing perforations to seal. Spoon half of the beef mixture lengthwise down center of rectangle.
On each long side, cut 1-in.-wide strips at an angle, about 3 in. into the center. Fold one strip from each side over filling and pinch ends together; repeat.
Repeat with remaining ingredients to make second braid. Bake 15-20 minutes or until golden brown. Yield: 2 loaves (4 servings each).

"This was super easy to make & looks like you spent a lot of time making it. Very flavorful and will surprise broccoli haters, lol. Also this dish allows you to do a quick clean up so you can spend more time with the family after dinner!"

"This was yummy! Will definitely make it again! I didn't do the braid, but instead just folded the dough over the top, and I added extra cheese on top of the mixture before closing it up. Then sprinkled a little on the top when it came out of the oven."
