It’s Friday!  And Friday at our house means I work at night, so Corey gets Taco Pockets to heat up when he gets home.  This is one of the first meals I made for Corey when we were dating and living in Greensboro.  He was suspicious at first, but tasted it and loved it!  I mean, its meat, cheese and bread – whats not to love?   Its total Man Food.

This is technically Pampered Chef’s Taco Ring, but I modify it so its easier to portion and freeze.  I don’t really follow a recipe any more because each pocket just gets a couple tablespoons of meat with cheese sprinkled on top.  But the basics are as follows:


1 lb ground beef, browned with 1 pkg taco seasoning added

shredded cheddar cheese

2 tubes of crescent rolls



Unroll the crescent rolls, and put two triangles together to

make a square.

Mash the seams together then roll out to a bigger rectangle shape.

Add a little pile of taco meat to one side of the rectangle.

Top with cheese.

Fold the dough over, and roll up the edges to seal.

Sprinkle a little cheese on top and dust with some paprika.

Bake according to the directions on the crescent roll package.  Usually at 375 degrees for 11-13 minutes.  I usually bake them for the lesser amount of time if I’m making them ahead of time to put in the freezer.  From the freezer, reheat the pockets for about 15-20 minutes.

All the men in your house will rejoice!  🙂
