Hamburger Roll-Ups

Kevin grew up on these yummy guys. I don't make them often, but when I do they are always devoured. I'm posting my Mother-in-laws recipe along with my changes. I know you will love these.

1 lb ground beef
1 medium grated onion chopped
1 carrot, grated (or more if desired)
1 stick of celery sliced fairly small
1 whole green pepper diced
1/2 tsp salt
dash of pepper
3 Tbsp flour
1/2 milk

Brown beef with onion. Mix in flour, salt and pepper. Gradually add milk stirring constantly, boiling one minute. Combine beef and onion mixture with carrots, celery and green pepper.

Make a biscuit dough using 2 cups flour or prepared biscuit mixture. Roll biscuit dough into 18"x9" rectangle. Spread hamburger filling over dough. Roll up beginning at widest side. Seal edges. Slice 1 1/2" thick.

Place slices on well greased cookie sheet close together for soft sides, apart for crusty sides. Bake 15 minutes in hot oven, 450 degrees or until brown.

Serve with cream of mushroom soup heated and thinned with some milk.

Buttermilk Biscuits
2 cups flour
2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
1/4 cup shortening
1/4 tsp soda
3/4 cup buttermilk

Heat oven to 450 degrees. Measure flour, baking powder and salt into bowl. Cut in shortening, thoroughly, until mixture looks like meal. Stir in almost all the milk. If dough is not pliable, add just enough milk to make soft, putty,easy-to-roll dough. Too much milk makes dough sticky, not enough makes dough dry.

Amy's biscuits:
1 1/4 cups white flour and 2/4 cup whole wheat flour
2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
1/8 cup olive oil
1/4 tsp soda
3/4 cup fat-free milk

Place all dry ingredients into a food processor. While mixing dry ingredients slowly add the olive oil. Mix until it looks like meal. Transfer to your mixer and follow directions for buttermilk biscuits above. Using olive oil makes a denser dough. If you want your biscuits flaky you will need to use shortening.

I often use ground turkey instead of beef. When I use ground turkey I switch the soup to Cream of Chicken.

I make similar with bread dough, spaghetti sauce, pepperoni and mozzerella or ham and cheese rolls with just chopped ham and cheddar cheese. They are a family favorite and go great on a cold day with a hot bowl of soup.

I'm going to make these in the dutch oven for my kids for lunch! They'll end up on my blog soon!
