My FAVORITE dinner to make used all of these readily available, fresh from your refrigerator ingredients.
Who doesn't have a pack of Crescent rolls laying around?
Here is the actual orange recipe card from Mom's orange box. I must have pulled this card out countless dozens of times. Look at the stains, the water marks and the love. Typed on her Smith-Corona.
Without further ado, I bring you Easy Beef and Cheese Pie.
Now for the step by step with pictures!!!! And you will understand how EASY this was, even for a 12-year-old girl.
Mix in the spices and egg.
Add your Lawry's Spaghetti Sauce mix to the spaghetti sauce in your Pyrex cup. Okay, the recipe said tomato sauce. I substituted.
Put your shredded cheddar cheese on top.
Now the hard part. I suck at crust.
While waiting for Easy Beef and Cheese Pie to finish cooking, wash up the very few dishes. Another benefit. Before serving, add water to remaining sauce and put in colorful fiesta gravy dish (substitution).
Let stand for about ten minutes. Heat up sauce in microwave. Cut into slices and top with sauce!
Yum Yum. Seriously tasty. My son and husband think this is the bomb. About 1200 calories a slice. Estimation only.
The idea for this post originated in Australia with these two bloggers. They posted at noon on Saturday and I posted Friday night (yes, it is confusing). See their Retro Cook-Off Recipes and also links to other bloggers' fabulous concoctions here:
