Cheesy Garlic Crescents

I needed a side dish to go with pasta and had a can of Pillsbury Crescent Rolls kicking around the fridge.    I knew that I wanted to stuff them with cheese, and have seen lots of recipes around using a cheese stick.   I didn't have any on hand, so I used shredded mozzarella (part skim).    For the topping, I combined Penzey's Brady Street Cheese Sprinkle and melted butter.      They came together quickly, baked up quickly and were delicious.    I did have some cheese oozing issues, so next time I may give the cheese sticks a try.

Jack O 'Lantern Cheeseburger Pie

This was Jake's first year not Trick Or Treating, but I still wanted to make him something special.   I spent a week or so browsing Pinterest, and this recipe from Southern Living caught my eye.    Cheesy beef in a pie crust?  I'm in  :)

I swapped the onion for dried onion and jarred garlic instead of fresh.   I also decided to add the mustard in with the beef mixture.  He's not a huge fan and if it was visible he might have balked.    I used a sharp shredded cheddar for my cheese.   Easy, fun and the grownups enjoyed it too!
