rolled cheeseburgers & sweet "rolls"...

1 pound extra-lean ground beef
1/2 cup chopped onion
season salt
1 1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
1 lb bread/roll dough

Brown ground beef, onions & salt until cooked through. Roll dough out on a well floured surface to approx. 12-14 inches in diameter. Place beef mixture over rolled dough. Sprinkle with cheese. Roll up as tightly as possible, tucking ends under. Bake in preheated 425 degree oven on greased baking sheet for 25 min. Let sit for 5 min before slicing.

Remember the rolled pizza? This is just my attempt to try something different with it. WOW! Really, really GOOD!! I actually meant to put cooked fries in with the meat & cheese (hey, don't knock it 'til you try it...) but I forgot until it was too late. We just had the fries on the side, which was good, too. The kids dipped theirs in mustard & did I. YUM! This was a quick, easy dinner to put together, and a nice change from grilled cheeseburgers (which we've had about enough of!)

The sweet roll was my attempt to use up the second one pound ball of dough I purchased. I just rolled the dough out, spread on a little butter, brown sugar & cinnamon...rolled it up and baked it right next to the cheeseburger roll. The icing is just powdered sugar with a little milk & vanilla drizzled over the top.
Was it as good as a regular cinnamon roll? No.
Was it a great, quick, YUMMY dessert to throw together? ABSOLUTELY!
We LOVED them!!
