This filling sandwich looks fancy but is really simple to make.  Each slice is packed with ground beef, broccoli and cheese.  Served with a green salad, this beefy sandwich makes a terrific lunch or dinner.

Broccoli Beef Braids Recipe

Broccoli Beef Braids

1 lb. ground beef

½ cup chopped onion

3 cups frozen chopped broccoli

1 cup (4 oz.) shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese

½ cup sour cream

¼ tsp. salt

¼ tsp. pepper

2 tubes (8 oz. each) refrigerated crescent rolls

Preheat oven to 350 F.  In a large skillet, cook beef and onion over medium heat until meat is no longer pink; drain.  Add the broccoli, cheese, sour cream, salt and pepper; heat through.

Unroll one tube of dough on a greased baking sheet; seal the seams and perforations, forming a 12×8 inch rectangle.  Spread half of beef mixture lengthwise down the center.  On each side, cut 1 inch wide strips 3 inch into center.  Starting at one end, fold alternating strips at an angle across filling; seal ends.  Repeat.

Bake 15-20 minutes or until golden brown.        2 loaves (8 serving each)
