FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS:
For this recipe you can use crescent rolls or a crescent dough sheet. If you do use the rolls, make sure you pinch the seams to seal before cutting them. If you use a dough sheet it will be easier to cut into strips.
If you want to switch it up and not use ground beef, these will be great with ground chicken, turkey and pork as well.
I used Stove Top chicken flavored stuffing for this recipe but you can use your favorite kind to switch up the taste if you’d like.
Absolutely! If you have a favorite meatloaf you like to make then I say that you can definitely use your favorite recipe for this. I tried to keep this recipe as easy as possible so it could be made quickly.
No, you can use your favorite BBQ sauce for this. If you want it sweeter, then go with a brown sugar barbecue sauce and if you want it spicier, then use one with a bolder flavor. Generally if I’m buying barbecue sauce I will get Sweet Baby Rays, KC Masterpiece Kansas City Classic (black label) or Bulls Eye brand.
If you have any leftover, place in an airtight container and they should keep in the refrigerator for up to 3-4 days. Reheat in the microwave, oven or in an air fryer until warmed through.
