For us, Family Movie Night consists of some kind of quick-and-easy dinner, a huge "campsite" usually created by Matt and the Kids, and of course, dessert. I love these nights, sprawled out on the floor together, it always brings back memories of my childhood and all the times my sister and I spent evenings with a bowl of popcorn and a great movie. I hope that it will be yet another memory my children remember as they grow up and have their own families.
One of my favorite meals to make for Family Movie Night is "Taco Ring." This recipe is really quick and easy to make, especially if you get the taco meat ready ahead of time. It only takes about 15 minutes (or less!) to cook and the kids love it! Serve it up with some chips and queso for a quick side and it's and easy dish to eat in front of the tv without too much mess :) Hope you enjoy!
1 lb. ground beef
2 pkg (8ct.) crescent rolls
shredded cheddar cheese
garnish: diced tomatoes, shredded lettuce, salsa, taco sauce, sour cream, etc. whatever you like!
In a large skillet, brown ground beef and drain. Return to pan and add taco seasoning and follow package instructions.
Meanwhile, arrange crescent rolls in a starburst pattern on a pizza pan or stone
Spoon ground beef on top of crescent rolls making sure to leave room to seal the ends together. Top with Cheese. You can also mix the cheese right into the meat before spooning it onto the rolls...either way works great!
Fold the points of the star in towards the center and press to seal
Bake at 350 degrees for about 15 minutes or until golden brown. Top with whatever garnishes you like and enjoy!!! :)
