Bierock Casserole

Who wants to take bets? My 5 yr old daughter has an appt to get her ears peirced today and I'm not thinking it's gonna happen! This is a tom boy were talking about, who could almost care less with what she wears and does not play with dolls, who loves dirt and mud and bugs and when it's time to get a shot at the dr.s office it takes 4 people to hold her down and about 20minutes of struggling with her before the shot can even be given. So you wanna make a bet now? LOL  I hope she does go through with it and it was her idea.  She saw a couple girls at preschool with earrings and her cousins too, so she thinks she wants them now.  She will be so "pretty" this summer while digging in the mud with her sparkly earrings! She does take after her mom in this department...I will be right next to her digging in the mud! Hey, a girls gotta be pretty while in the mud, right?! I will post a picture tomorrow if she goes through with it!  On with the recipe....do you like bierox, or is it bierocks? My mom taught me how to make them and they are wonderful and so easy to freeze for later.  They do take some time to make, but they are worth it. And there are many variations to what you can add to your meat.  I came across this recipe for bierock casserole a few years ago and it is really good. It's not quite the same as an individual bierock, but it is much quicker and really good.  It uses crescent rolls, and you can put the layer on the top or on the bottom, or if you like more bread, then put a layer on top and bottom.  Enjoy!
Bierock Casserole
1 bag of prepackaged coleslaw
11/2pd ground beef
1can cream mushroom
1-2C shredded cheddar cheese
1or 2 cans crescent rolls
Brown beef and add onion if desired.  Mix in the bag of coleslaw(I don't use the whole bag, but use how much you like) Place a lid on the beef/coleslaw mixture and place on med-low to let the coleslaw steam and get soft. Once it has softened add the cream of mushroom soup and stir well.  I often add a few Tbsp of mustard at this point and I also boil about 1/4C water and add a beef bouillon cube and melt and add this to the mixture.  You can leave this step out if you want, I just think it adds more flavor.  Grease a 13x9 and place the mixture in the dish and top with shredded cheese and then place the crescent rolls on top, pressing seals together.  In my picture, you see I put the layer of crescent rolls on the bottom of the pan and it worked just as well. I think it would also be good to put a layer on the top and the bottom.  Bake at 400 for around 15-20min.
Note: instead of using a bag of coleslaw you can also use a bag of prepackaged broccoli slaw, it is located near the bagged coleslaw

I never heard of bierocks before! It sounds super comforting and delicious! Thank you for the sweet comment on my blog! I'm sorry for the loss of your brother. Blogging has been a lifesaver for me - it gives me something to occupy my time with.
