Crescent Cabbage and Beef Bundles | www.tasteandtellblog.com

Years ago, my parents used to own a Play It Again Sports. Because of this, my mom spent just about every Saturday morning out at garage sales. She became quite the garage sale expert. One thing she kept her eyes open for were those little Pillsbury magazine/cookbook things that you can buy at the grocery store checkout. For some reason, they must have really appealed to her, and she could often find them for cheap at garage sales. And now I have a nice thick stack of them, most of them coming from my mom. For some reason, when I’m making my menu, I tend to forget about these little books, which is a shame, because they really do hold some great recipes in them. So I decided to pull a couple of them out the other day and find something for dinner. I knew I had some ground beef in the fridge that needed to be used, so on a search I went. And these little bundles are what I ended up deciding on.

Can you believe I used to not like horseradish? Now whenever I see it in a recipe, I want to make that recipe asap. I think that is why this one called out to me!

Recipe Notes:

  • I didn’t quite understand the directions on how to “bundle” these up. (Or maybe I was just too impatient!) So I just rolled them. It worked just fine!
  • I used some Napa cabbage that I had on hand, and I used twice as much as the recipe calls for. I think I would have liked even more!
  • Surprisingly, I would leave the cheese out next time. I couldn’t even really taste it in there, and that would be a great way to cut some calories out of this.
  • Don’t skip on the dipping sauce! That is what makes these delicious!

We loved these. So did Abbi. She couldn’t get enough! I love that they are super easy and use very few ingredients. Now I’m headed off to look through more of these little books!

Crescent Cabbage and Beef Bundles
from Pillsbury America’s Bake-Off Cookbook

serves 6-8

total time: about 45 minutes

1 pound ground beef
1/3 cup chopped onion
2 cups chopped cabbage
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
2 oz. (1/2 cup) shredded cheddar cheese
2 (8-oz) cans Quick Crescent Dinner rolls

Sauce
1/3 cup mayonnaise
2 tablespoons horseradish

Heat oven to 375°F. In large skillet, cook ground beef and onion over medium-high heat until beef is thoroughly cooked, stirring frequently. Drain.

Add cabbage, salt and pepper; mix well. Reduce heat to medium; cover and cook 10 to 15 minutes or until cabbage is crisp-tender, stirring occasionally. Cool 5 minutes. Stir in cheese.

Separate dough into 16 triangles; press or roll each until slightly larger. Spoon about 1/4 cup beef mixture on shortest side of each triangle. Roll up, starting at shortest side of triangle, gently wrapping dough around beef mixture and rolling to opposite point. Pinch edges to seal. Place point side down on ungreased large cookie sheet.

Bake at 375°F. for 15 to 20 minutes or until golden brown. Meanwhile, in small bowl, combine mayonnaise and horseradish sauce; blend well. Serve sauce with sandwiches.

    I'm not big with directions for exactly how to fold things and how to present them. I probably would have just rolled them. They look great and delicious! Thanks!

    Sounds delish!

  3. Pam says:

    Oh my gosh! Lucky you with the Pillsbury cookbooks! I had so many of them and have no idea what happened to them, probably in a box somewhere. The bundles look delicious! The sauce is simple and sounds great. Isn't horseradish the best? Love it and thanks for the great recipe!

    Those are delicious looking crescents! A wonderful combination.

    Cheers,

    I love those little books at the checkout too. This looks like a very tasty meal that is great for families. Gotta love that horseradish!

    There is something really appealing about this recipe.

  7. Cassie says:

    These contain everything I love. I'm definitely going to try them.

  8. Barbara says:

    Those Bake-Off books are marvelous, Deborah. I used to have every single one back to the early 60's. And used the recipes too. There're not all instant recipes as some people think. I finally gave my collection to my daughter in law and she loves them.
    Always felt the same way about a collection called Make It Now, Bake It Later, which you can still buy at Amazon.

    Oh YUMMY!!!

    My Mom always picked up those little cookbooks too. And I have several of hers and then used to pick on up every now and then. But I haven't for a long time. Looking for them at Garage Sales is a great idea.

    This recipe sounds like it is a recreation of a Runza. I grew up in Nebraska and they were quite popular there.

    The change that you did that I like is using the Napa Cabbage. I am sure I would like them better that way.

  11. Joanne says:

    I'm pretty sure that anything wrapped in a crescent roll would turn out to be delicious but these look especially good. I'm with you on the horseradish – amazing!

  12. Julie says:

    Hmm…I think I don't like horseradish, maybe I should think again. Love the crescent rolls any way!

  13. grace says:

    how cool. i've done plenty of shopping at play it again sports–it's a great chain. meanwhile, these little bundles are quite a find! canned crescent rolls just so happen to have recently become an obsession of mine, and it's time they took a turn for the savory. :)

  14. Abby says:

    I wish Abbi would rub off on C. He will not try anything for me! This would be a fab weeknight meal for us.

    And I've read that tastebuds change every so many years. That would explain your new loves, such as horseradish!
