I had bought a can of the new Pillsbury Crescent Recipe Creations refrigerated flaky dough sheet about a month ago. I decided I wanted to make it so I went onto the Pillsbury website and found this recipe. Not only did it seem easy, but something Jimmy would like.
It was very good. The dough tastes just like a crescent roll. Jimmy did the mixing of the ingredients and finished browning the meat. I don't think you should have to cut the dough into 6 squares, but instead just lay the dough on top of the meat in one sheet.
While I was putting this together, I thought of ways to change the recipe - different cheese, make it Italian or Mexican. I will definitely make this again and experiment!
1 lb lean (at least 80%) ground beef 1/4 cup chopped onion 1/4 cup chopped dill pickles 1/2 cup water 1/2 cup ketchup 1 T yellow mustard 1/8 tsp. pepper 1 1/2 cups shredded American cheese (6 oz) 1 can (8 oz) Pillsbury Crescent Recipe Creations refrigerated flaky dough sheet 1 egg, beaten 1 T sesame seeds
1. Heat oven to 375 degrees. In a 10-inch nonstick skillet, cook beef and onion over medium-high heat 5-7 minutes, stirring frequently, until thoroughly cooked; drain. Stir in pickles, water, ketchup, mustard and pepper.
2. Spoon beef mixture into 11/7 inch (2 quart) glass baking dish (I used metal). Sprinkle with cheese.
3. Unroll dough; press into 12x8 inch rectangle. Cut into 6 squares; place on top of cheese. Brush with egg; sprinkle with sesame seeds.
I am a single mom with two kids - a 16 year old son who lives with me and a 27 year old daughter who lives less than mile away. I like to cook and I love to try new dishes. I especially love when either kids spends time in the kitchen with me.
