Tangy Beef Turnovers Recipe

"My mom's recipe for these flavorful pockets called for dough made from scratch, but I streamlined it by using crescent rolls," informs Claudia Bodecker of Ash Flat, Arkansas. "My children love them plain or dipped in ketchup."
TOTAL TIME: Prep/Total Time: 30 min. YIELD:12 servings


  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 1 jar (16 ounces) sauerkraut, rinsed, drained and chopped
  • 1 cup (4 ounces) shredded Swiss cheese
  • 3 tubes (8 ounces each) refrigerated crescent rolls


  • 1. In a large skillet, cook beef and onion over medium heat until meat is no longer pink; drain. Add sauerkraut and cheese.
  • 2. Unroll crescent roll dough and separate into rectangles. Place on greased baking sheets; pinch seams to seal. Place 1/2 cup beef mixture in the center of each rectangle. Bring corners to the center and pinch to seal. Bake at 375° for 15-18 minutes or until golden brown. Yield: 1 dozen.

"My husband loves these. I made them for a family get together and everyone thought they were great. My sister suggested to save time, just assemble and bake whole in a 9x13 pan instead of assembling the individual portions."
