Cheese Steak Crescent Braid

1 Tbsp. Butter or margarine
4 Portions thinly sliced frozen sandwich steaks, or left over roast beef shredded
1 Large green bell pepper, cut into thin bite size strips
1 Medium onion, chopped (1/2 cup)
2 Cans (8 oz each) Pillsbury refrigerated crescent dinner rolls
1 Cup Shredded mozzarella cheese
1 Egg, beaten

Heat oven to 350 °F. In 10-inch skillet, melt butter over medium high heat. Add steak strips; cook 8 to 10 minutes, stirring frequently, until no longer pink. Remove steak from skillet, place on plate.

Add bell pepper and onion to skillet; cook about 5 minutes, stirring occasionally, until crisp tender. Return cooked steak to skillet; mix well. If desired, add salt and pepper to taste.

Unroll 1 can of dough onto ungreased cookie sheet, firmly press perforations and edges to seal. Press or roll into 13×7 inch rectangle.

Spoon heaping cup of steak mixture in 2 inch wide strip lengthwise down center of dough to within 1/4 inch of each end. Sprinkle 1/2 cup of the cheese over steak mixture.

Make cuts 1 inch apart on long sides of rectangle just to edge of filling. For braided appearance, fold strips of dough at an angle halfway across filling with ends slightly overlapping, alternating from side to side.

Fold ends of braid under to seal. On second ungreased cookie sheet, repeat with remaining can of dough, steak mixture and cheese.

Brush braids with beaten egg.

Bake 16 to 22 minutes or until golden brown, switching position of cookie sheets in oven halfway through baking. Cool 1 minute; remove braids from cookie sheets.

Let stand 5 minutes before serving, cutting into slices.

About Delicious Goodies

Love life, the outdoors, photography, reading, cooking, baking, spending time with family. Just a girl next door in what I call paradise - Southern California. By no means a professional cook, I do enjoy cooking, trying new recipes and sharing with others. I hope you enjoy what you find here! I have one Vegan in the family, so we are always making two meals, rather fun, and it allows us to try new ideas. When I was in Middle School I use to help my Grandmother make cookie canisters - every year at Christmas we would make an assortment of cookies, breads, candy and put them in a wrapped canister and give them as gifts. I still enjoy this idea, although haven't done it that much - at least not an assortment of goodies. I think this year will be the year I go back to that idea and see how everyone likes it. Have a wonderful week, and spread kindness everywhere you go!
