BBQ Beef Rolls

Tuesday was a wild and crazy day and I had about 40 minutes to make dinner and feed the kiddos and two friends before baseball at 6.

BBQ Ranch Chicken and Cheddar Pizza Roll 'em Ups
(recipe from Jenny Flake at Picky Palate)

I remembered seeing the awesome recipe above on Picky Palate one day so I printed it out before I left the office. I knew I had a roll of pizza crust in the fridge, and of course we always have shredded cheese. Ever the short-cutter, I figured I'd nix the ranch and use a tub of ready-to-eat shredded BBQ that I could pick up at the grocery store. I hoped to find pork or chicken, but my small neighborhood IGA only had BBQ beef, so beef it was.
It seriously took me about 5 minutes to prep it and get it in the oven. 20 minutes to bake, and that would leave us about 15 minutes to eat.
It was a HUGE hit! All the kids loved it, aside from WC who is a fruitatarian and doesn't count in the equation.

Side note: my finished product did not look nearly as pretty as Jenny's, but since they tasted so good, and my customers were 7-9 years old, I wasn't too worried about presentation!

Do you have any good dinner-in-a-hurry recipes to share?

My modified recipe:

1 Roll Pillsbury Pizza dough in can

1 container refrigerated pre-cooked BBQ meat (chicken, pork, of beef)

shredded cheese

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Open can of dough and press into rectangle. Spread meat on top then top with cheese. Starting at long end, roll dough into a log shape. Using a sharp knife, cut 1 inch pieces and place onto a greased baking sheet. Bake for 20-22 minutes or until golden brown.
