Sloppy Joe Squares

Pillsbury crescent rolls are good with anything or just by themselves I believe. But this is a quick and easy recipe. Is great as leftovers also. Gets soggy when reheated in microwave but a couple of minutes in toaster oven or conventional oven solves that.

1 lb lean ground beef
1 lb lean ground beef
1 (8 oz) can tomato sauce
1 cup water
1 (1.5 oz) package sloppy joe mix (see options)
1 tsp dried onion flakes
2 (8 oz) cans refrigerated reduced– fat crescent rolls
1 cup (4 oz) shredded Cheddar cheese
1 Tbsp. Milk
1 Tbsp. Sesame seeds (optional)

Preheat oven to 425*. Brown ground beef in a large skillet over medium-high heat, stirring until it crumbles and is no longer pink. Drain and pat dry with paper towels. Wipe skillet clean. Return beef to skillet; stir in tomato sauce and next 3 ingredients. Bring to a boil; reduce heat and simmer 10 minutes. Stirring occasionally.

Unroll 1 can crescent rolls into a lightly greased 13×9 backing dish. Press seams together to seal perforations. Spread beef mixture over dough; sprinkle with cheese. Unroll remaining can of rolls over cheese, pinching seams together to seal perforations. Brush dough with milk and sprinkle with sesame seeds, if desired. Bake at 425* for 15 minutes or until golden.

* Instead of tomato sauce, water, sloppy joe mix try Manwich
* Add a couple tablespoons of dehydrated red and green bell pepper
