The unnamed taco roll-up thingy

The unnamed taco roll-up thingy

by Dawn Smith-Pfeifer

I used to write a blog called My Two Acres that's still floating around the interwebs. I went back to the blog because I was looking for a picture of my daughter with a bouquet of dandelions. I never found that, but I did find a recipe that I felt compelled to share because my family gave it a thumbs up (at least that's what I wrote in the blog!) so it probably was pretty good. I have no recollection of this recipe, but I did provide a testimonial after the recipe and a couple of ideas for the name of the recipe (skip to the bottom for that).


1 lb. ground beef, add 1 packet of taco seasoning and 1/4 cup water, simmer

2 cups Bisquick mix
1/2 cup cold water
2 tbsp butter

Mix to a soft dough. Gently smooth dough into a ball on a floured surface. Knead. Roll dough into a rectangle. Spread browned hamburger over dough. Sprinkle with sliced black olives. Roll up, beginning at narrow side, and cut into 1-inch slices. Place in a greased pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes or until biscuits are golden brown.

Cheese sauce:
2 tbsp butter
2 tbsp Bisquick
1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
1 cup milk
pepper to taste

Melt butter over low heat in saucepan. Blend in Bisquick and pepper. Cook over low heat, stirring constantly until mixture is smooth and bubbly. Add milk. Bring to boil while stirring. Stir in cheese and heat until cheese is melted.

Pour cheese sauce over biscuits and serve.

I really liked this (but I have a thing for cheese sauce!). And my family did too. It's basically tacos using biscuits instead of taco shells.

So here are the names I came up with:

Cheesy taco loaf
Shocko Taco
Looks bad, tastes divine

If you have anything better, please share.
