This recipe was first made by my Mom more than thirty years ago. She found it in a magazine and tweeked it to her liking. It is simple and very filling. You can use it as a main meal or serve vegetables with it. When I make this I need to make 2-3 loaves of it. I have also change the ingredients as a quick brunch or a lunch when needed

How to Make Beef Cheese Foldovers


  1. Begin by browning 1 and 1/2 lbs ground beef. When thoroughly browned, drain and rinse meat; add BBQ sauce and heat till it is bubbly.
  2. Add Shredded cheddar cheese and stir till thoroughly melted. Refrigerate for at least 1-2 hours or till the meat is cooled enough so it doesn't melt the crescent dough.
  3. Preheat oven to temperature specified on the crescent dough roll; roll the dough out on a cookie sheet and seal the edges of the triangles. Do not take dough out of refrigerator till ready to use. Place the meat down the center of the dough lengthwise.
  4. Cut the american cheese slices into triangles and place on the top of the meat long edge to the tip of the triangle.
  5. Close the dough over the top of the cheese and meat mixture then seal the edges. Bake as directed in the crescent roll package til golden brown.
  6. Remove from oven and let stand for 5 minutes till the juices settle. Slice into 2-4 servings
  7. I have used this recipe and tweeked it to fit my needs. I used spaghetti sauce, mozzerella cheese and other pizza fixings. Another option is scrambled eggs ham and cheese for a wrapped omelet. These are all delicious you can even do it as a Phillie cheese steak wrapped loaf.
