Sweet & Sour “Shape Ups” recipe


1 lb. ground beef
1/2 cup drained pineapple tidbits or chunks
1/2 cup sweet and sour sauce
1/4 cup chopped green pepper
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp Tabasco pepper sauce
1/2 tsp. soy sauce
1 can (8 oz.) Pillsbury Refrigerated Crescent Dinner Rolls


In large frying pan, brown ground beef, drain. Stir in pineapple, sweet and sour sauce, green pepper, salt, Tobasco and soy sauce; set aside.

On ungreased cookie sheet, separate crescent dough into 4 rectangles. Firmly press perforations to seal.

Place a heaping 1/2 cup of meat mixture in each rectangle. Raise all edges to form open-faced pie crust. Bake at 375 degrees F for 15 to 20 minutes until golden brown.
