Taco Ring

I remember trying this ring at a friends house like two years ago, when I didn't cook fluently =) so when I stumbled on this recipe I was dying to make it! It is so easy and so good. I found the recipe on Cook Like a Champion's blog, she has a lot of yummy stuff, so you should check her food blog out too! Here is the recipe, Enjoy!!

Taco Ring

2 packages refrigerated, ready to bake crescent rolls (8 rolls each)
1 pound ground turkey
1 pack taco seasoning
lettuce, sour cream, salsa and cheese for topping

-Preheat oven to 350
-To make the filling: in a skillet, brown turkey and add taco seasoning. Follow directions on seasoning packet, using slightly less water than called for.
-To make the crust: open one pack of crescent rolls and separate. Lay the crescent rolls in a circle around the pan, narrow side pointing out. You want to do this so that the angled side of the crescent roll is going the same direction around the pan (i.e. if your first roll has the angled side on the right, then continue laying the rolls so that the angled side is on the right each time). When you are finished, it will look like a sun.
-Open the second pack of crescent rolls and separate. Lay one crescent roll, still with the narrow end pointing out, in between two of the previous crescent rolls. Line up the bottom of this roll with the bottom of the first layer of rolls (it will be on top of the first layer). You just want to make sure that the pointy end of this one is in the middle of two pointy ends of the previous ones. Continue until all the rolls are laid out.
-Using a spoon, carefully add the meat to the wide part of the crescent rolls.
-Once the meat has been added, fold the narrow end of the crescent rolls over the meat.
-At this point, you can tear the narrow ends and tuck the top of the crescent roll into the bottom of the roll. Using the extra ends you've torn off, cover any open spots you may have between rolls.
-Bake until the crescent rolls are a light golden brown.
-Lightly sprinkle with cheese (just a small amount) and return to oven until cheese is melted and toasty.
-Serve with all your favorite taco toppings.

Hi Maci,
We're trying the Taco Ring for supper tonight. I'm sure we're going to love it. It really looks good. I hope I can figure out how to roll the crescent rolls to make the ring shape. Will let you know.
