Crescent Ring

  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • ½ teaspoon garlic powder
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ cup water
  • 1 cup shredded jack cheese
  • ½ cup Pearls Sliced Black Olives
  • 2 cans (8 oz) refrigerated crescent rolls (8 count each)


For serving

  • Shredded lettuce
  • Diced tomatoes
  • Pearls Sliced Black Olives
  • Guacamole
  • Sour cream

Cooking Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 375ºF. Line a rimless cookie sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Heat the oil in a wide skillet set over medium heat. When it shimmers, add the beef. Cook, stirring occasionally, until brown, 3-5 minutes. Add the paprika, cumin, oregano, garlic powder, salt, and water and continue cooking until the liquid has thickened and the meat is cooked through, another 3-5 minutes.
  3. Scrape the meat into a bowl, let cool slightly, then stir in the cheese and olives.
  4. Remove the crescent rolls from their packages and separate into 16 triangles. Fan out the triangles on the lined cookie sheet with the wide ends facing the center and forming a 5-inch ring and the dough pieces overlapping. The ends of the triangles will point outwards and look like a sun.
  5. Spoon the beef mixture over the half of each triangle closest to center of ring.
  6. Fold the tip of each triangle over the meat and secure each one under the wide edge in the center of the ring. Some of the filling will peek through.
  7. Bake the crescent ring until the dough is golden and the filling is hot, 20-25 minutes. Slide the crescent ring onto a serving board. Fill in the center with shredded lettuce, diced tomatoes, Pearls Sliced Black Olives, guacamole, and sour cream. Cut into wedges to serve.
