1 ½ pounds ground beef
¼ cup onion, diced
¼ cup green pepper, diced
½ cup shredded cheddar cheese
½ cup shredded mozzarella cheese
¼ cup shredded colby-jack cheese
1 tube of refrigerated sheet crescent dough
1 T water
Salt and pepper
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Foil line a baking pan and spray with cooking spray.
Brown ground beef in a pan on the stovetop. Once browned, drain grease and empty the beef into a large bowl and set aside to cool. Using the same pan that is slightly greased from the ground beef, sauté onion and green pepper until soft. Add to ground beef. Add all cheese to the ground beef and onion mixture and toss.
Unroll crescent dough sheet onto prepared baking pan. Gently press larger to flatten curly end. Pour beef mixture down the center lengthwise of the crescent dough, leaving about 2” on each end. Cut slits into the sides of the dough approximately 1” wide. Fold up the starting end of dough, then alternate sides, bringing 1’ strips one at a time to the top and layer down the beef mixture to create a semi braid. Fold up final end and press gently to secure.
In a separate small bowl, beat egg with 1 tablespoon of water and brush over the top of the braid.
Bake for 25-35 minutes or until the crust is golden brown. Serve with a fresh lettuce salad and light vinaigrette dressing.
