Beef Mushroom Bites
Instead of buying prepackaged mushrooms and having leftovers, spend less money and buy loose mushrooms. You will need about 5 ounces whole mushrooms for 1/2 cup of minced mushrooms.
1 lb ground beef
2 Tbsp dried onion flakes
1/2 tsp garlic salt
1/2 cup minced fresh mushrooms
3 oz cream cheese, softened
2 (8-ounce) packages crescent rolls
Preheat oven to 350°F. Cook beef in a medium skillet over medium-high heat until browned and crumbly, about 10 minutes. Drain. Add onion flakes and garlic salt.
Add mushrooms and cream cheese to beef mixture; mix well. Separate crescent rolls into 8 rectangles. Spoon some beef mixture over each piece of dough. Roll to enclose filling.
Press ends of rolls to seal. Place roll-ups on ungreased baking sheets. Bake until golden brown, about 15 minutes.
Cut each roll-up into quarters. Serve immediately.
A multi-bladed rolling chopper, available in most gourmet stores, is a lightning-fast way to mince mushrooms.
