Description

Well-seasoned ground beef, spinach, mushrooms, and cheese rolled up into a pizza dough, these savory sticky buns are served with a cream cheese frosting, making them extra yummy!


Ingredients

Units Scale
  • 1 pound lean ground beef (96% lean)
  • 2 teaspoons chopped fresh sage or 1/2 teaspoon rubbed sage
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • 1 tablespoon Canola oil or cooking spray
  • 1 cup sliced button mushrooms
  • 3/4 cup diced onion
  • 3 cups fresh baby spinach
  • 1/2 cup reduced-fat shredded Cheddar cheese
  • 1 package (13.8 ounces) refrigerated pizza dough

For the cream cheese frosting:

  • 1/4 cup softened cream cheese
  • 12 tablespoons milk

Instructions

  1. Combine ground beef, chopped fresh sage or rubbed sage, garlic powder, onion powder, salt and red pepper flakes in large bowl, mixing lightly but thoroughly.
  2. Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium high heat until hot. Add the beef mixture; cook 8 to 10 minutes, breaking into small crumbles and stirring occasionally. Transfer 2 cups beef mixture to a large bowl and set aside. Reserve the rest for another use.
  3. Add oil in the same skillet, place onion and mushrooms and cook over medium heat; cook 5 to 7 minutes or until vegetables are tender, stirring occasionally. Add spinach to skillet; stir to wilt spinach.
  4. Add vegetable mixture to the beef; set aside for a few minutes until the mixture cools down a little. Stir in cheese.
  5. Preheat oven to 425°F. Unroll pizza dough on a flat surface; pat or roll dough evenly to 14 x 10-inch rectangle, pinching together any tears, if necessary.
  6. Spread beef and vegetable mixture on dough, leaving 1/2 inch border on short side furthest from you. Starting at closest short end, roll up jelly-roll style, pinching to close. Slice dough into 8 pieces using serrated knife and careful sawing motion; place cut-side-up on greased baking sheet.
  7. Bake for 18 to 20 minutes or until golden brown. Remove buns to a cooling rack.
  8. Combine cream cheese and milk in a small bowl, stirring until smooth. Drizzle on top of the beef sticky buns and serve.
