Meat Rolls

My daughter has been ribbing me about this recipe ever since I made it, but I actually like it. This is something my mother made occasionally when I was young, and I most recently used my Aunt's recipe to make it for my family. There really isn't much recipe to it, but for those cooking challenged, here is how I made it.

First make biscuit dough. I have posted a recipe once before that you could use. Click here for that recipe.

Roll out the dough to about 1/4 to 1/2 inch thick.

In a bowl combine:

About a pound of uncooked ground beef
About 1 can vegetable soup (concentrated)

I didn't have vegetable soup when I made it, so I used 1/2 can of tomato soup, and one can of mixed vegetables (drained).

Spread meat mixture on top of biscuit dough. Roll up and slice like you would if you were making cinnamon rolls. Bake at 325 degrees for about 25 -30 minutes or until lightly browned.

Meanwhile, melt about 2 tbl. butter in a pan. Add about 2 tbl. flour. When it is combined well, add about 1 cup of milk, stirring constantly. I also like to add about a teaspoon of chicken soup base or bouillion. You are making a white sauce. You can adjust the amount of milk if you like the sauce to be thinner or thicker. Serve the white sauce over the meat rolls.

My daughter asked if I was going to make meat cupcakes the next night for dinner. I don't think she could get past the cinnamon roll effect. My husband suggested I make individual meat loafs in a muffin pan. ;D

I make this occasionally for my family, and they love it!
I use vegetable beef soup, but have tried other soups, and made my own like you did. Try making this with taco seasoned meat and peppers and onions. Add a little cheese on top the last few minutes if you want. Serve it with sour cream and salsa. instead of the gravy for a change.

I saw you said your daughter was asking if you were going to make "meat" cupcakes.

I was thinking about that, have you ever made shepherds pie? You could make that in muffin papers and top them with the mashed potato and call them meat cupcakes. LOL, Rick

LOL I might have to do that. Dang, I made shepherd's pie this past week, I could have done it then! I think I am going to try that just to tease her. :)
