Tasty Tuesday . . . Bacon Cheeseburger Roll Up

This is one meal that my husband really loves. I know it may not be the healthiest, but it is easy and you can add a salad and it won't be that bad. The original recipe is from Kraft. I made just a few small changes.

1 lb. lean ground beef
4 slices Bacon, chopped- Sometimes I just omit the bacon
1 small onion, chopped
1 1/2 cups (8 oz.) Shredded Cheese - the original recipe calls for Velveeta (I personally don't use a "cheese product" I prefer to use real cheese)
1 homemade pizza crust - this crust is quick and easy and good

Then I just follow the instructions:

HEAT
oven to 400°F. Brown ground beef with bacon and onions in large skillet on medium-high heat; drain.

UNROLL dough onto baking sheet sprayed with cooking spray. Press into 15x8-inch rectangle; top with meat mixture. Top with shredded cheese. Roll up, starting at one of the long sides. Rearrange if necessary so roll is seam-side down.

BAKE 20 to 25 min. or until golden brown.

This meal is even easier if you have a frozen pizza crust on hand that you have pre-made and some frozen ground beef that you have already cooked up. It makes for a quick week night meal!
