"Great with soup, as a snack or as a meal on the run. These store well in the freezer if you make them in advance."

  1. Preheat an oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Grease two baking sheets.
  2. Beat the egg in a bowl until smooth. Add the ground beef, cayenne pepper, crushed cereal, onion, salt, black pepper, and parsley. Mix until evenly combined; set aside. Stir together the flour, baking powder, salt, and sugar in a separate bowl. Cut in the shortening with a pastry blender until no lumps of shortening remain and the mixture takes on a sandy appearance. Stir in the milk until a dough forms.
  3. Roll the dough out to a 10x15-inch rectangle on a well-floured surface. Spread the meat mixture evenly over the entire surface of the dough. Roll the dough into a cylinder from one of the wide ends to form a 15-inch long log. Cut the log into 3/4-inch slices and place on to the prepared baking sheets.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven until dark golden brown, 30 to 45 minutes. Serve hot.

As suggested a added gourmet mustard, this was a very nice touch. However, I did make an Au jou sauce for drenching or dipping.

I'm from Pittsburgh, PA & it's a Family Favorite. I buy Crescent Rolls to save time. I add onions & mushrooms to the meat mixture. It's also served with grazy...Joni

Great flavor on the meat mixture for the recipe. I made it a little easier by using a prepared, refrigerated pizza dough roll. Worked perfect and much less messy than crescent rolls or from scra...

Very very delicious! These pack well for lunch in an insulated lunchbox. These are also great for a quick snack. I just made these (again) and used ground stew beef instead of ground beef- the p...
