Lamb Roll Ups

A friend gave me a few pounds of ground lamb that I had no idea what to do with as we're not big lamb eaters. Even my finicky family polishes these off in no time. The addition of the sweet preserves is a wonderful addition to the savory lamb and cheese.

Prep:

20 Min

Cook:

15 Min

Ingredients

1 lb
ground lamb
1/2 c
diced onion
1 tsp
salt
1 tsp
pepper
1 pkg
feta cheese crumbles (5 ounces)
1/2 c
apricot preserves
2 pkg
crescent rolls

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Brown lamb and onion in large frying pan. While lamb is browning add salt and pepper. Drain off excess fat. Stir in cheese.
2
Gently open both packages of crescents and remove dough, keeping roll intact. On a lightly floured surface carefully unroll as one piece. Press seams together to make one large dough. Roll it out to make approximately 17x10 inch rectangle.
3
Spread the preserves on top of the crescent rectangle. Top with the meat and onion mixture.
4
From the longer side of the rectangle, carefully roll the dough. With a bread knife, slice it into 1 to 1 1/2 inch pieces and place on baking sheet with space between each roll up.
5
Bake in a 375 degree oven 12-15 minutes or until the dough turns golden brown.
