A slight variation of a recipe Mom served the family for years. My friend Beth shared this recipe on FB earlier today.  I went out and got the ingredients and it’s baking in the oven now!  If there are any typos in this posting it’s because I was rushing in anticipation of Sloppy Joe Casserole for lunch!

1 lb. ground round
1 can (15.5 oz.) sloppy Joe sauce
2 cans (12 oz. ea.) refrigerated crescent dinner rolls
2 cups shredded Cheddar cheese
1 Tbs. sesame seed

1. Preheat oven to 350°F. In a large saute pan, cook beef over medium heat 8 to 10 minutes, stirring occasionally, until thoroughly cooked; drain. Stir in sauce. Heat to boiling, stirring occasionally.

2. Unroll 1 can of the dough; place in ungreased 13×9-inch glass baking dish. Press in bottom and 1/2 inch up sides of dish. Spread beef mixture over dough; sprinkle with cheese. Unroll second can of dough; place over cheese. Sprinkle with sesame seed.

3. Bake at 350°F for 30 to 35 minutes or until mixture is bubbly and dough is golden brown. Cut into squares to serve.
