If you haven’t heard of these before, we definitely recommend trying them! They are easy, delicious, and one of my family’s favorite meals. Like anything, there are probably a few different versions of them. This recipe is our version.

  • Rhodes Rolls dough- defrosted
  • Oil for frying
  • Ground Beef
  • Taco Seasoning
  • Sour Cream
  • Cheese
  • Any other desired toppings such as: green onions, tomatoes, lettuce, etc.


There really is no specific amounts for this recipe, it all depends on how many you're making it for. One of the best things about this recipe is how well it will stretch to feed a large group or work to feed a small family. We ALWAYS fry the entire bag of roll dough because the scones make great leftovers.  

Once your dough is soft, stretch & flatten each roll into scone shapes.  Then place them into hot oil in a frying pan.  You want enough oil so that the dough will float.  As the dough browns on one side, flip it over until it browns on the other side, then remove it from the oil and put it into a large bowl lined with paper towels.

Cook the ground beef until it's brown, then add taco seasoning (as much as you like, I would say equivalent to 1 package per lb of ground beef) and a little bit of water (again about 1/4 to 1/2 cup of water per lb of meat)  Set aside.

Once the dough is fried into scones, and the meat is cooked and seasoned, it's time to assemble and eat! Spoon some meat on top of a scone and then top with your desired toppings- cheese, sour cream, some people use lettuce, green onions, tomatoes, etc.
