- 8 oz. ground chuck
- 2 tsp. minced fresh garlic
- 2 tsp. Italian seasoning
- 1 can tomato sauce (8 oz.)
- 2 tubes crescent dinner rolls, such as Pillsbury (8 oz. each)
- 8 mozzarella cheese sticks
- 2 Tbsp. unsalted butter, melted
- 1/2 tsp. garlic salt
- 1/4 tsp. dried oregano
- 1 cup purchased marinara sauce, warmed
- Preheat your oven to 425 degrees. Take a baking sheet and line it with parchment paper.
- Take a sauté pan out and set it over medium-high heat. Add the chuck to the pan, breaking it up and stirring it around until it’s fully cooked. Drain any grease that may have accumulated in the pan, keeping the meat in the pan. Toss the garlic and Italian seasoning in, stirring constantly for a minute. Pour the tomato sauce in, stirring to combine. Let the sauce simmer for 3 minutes or until it gets bubbly.
- Take the crescent roll dough and divide it into 8 rectangles, pinching the seams together. Put 2 tablespoons of the chuck mixture along the long side of each rectangle, topping the chuck with a cheese stick. Roll the dough up so the filling’s enclosed. Pinch the seams closed and put the roll-ups on the lined baking sheet, seam side down.
- Take a small bowl and mix the butter, garlic salt and oregano together in it. Brush the butter mixture over the roll-ups. Place the baking sheet in the oven for 10-12 minutes or until the roll-ups look golden brown. Serve with the marinara sauce on the side.
This picture doesn’t properly convey just how ooey, gooey, melty and stretchy the cheese got in this. This is a great snack to enjoy !
