Mrs. C.B. Whitten won for her Crescent Cheeseburger Bake recipe in 1971- the year I was born!
1 1/2 pounds lean ground beef
1 minced onion
1 minced garlic clove
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
2 teaspoons Worchestershire sauce
1/4 cup ketchup
2 teaspoons yellow mustard
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
2 tubes of crescent rolls
1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
lettuce and tomato on the side
Cook ground beef with onion and garlic. Drain well. Return to pan and add pepper, Worchestershire sauce, ketchup mustard and 1 cup shredded cheese. Heat through until cheese is melted and all ingredients are combined.
Unroll the crescents into triangles. You'll have 16 altogether. Arrange them in a circle on a pizza pan with the points toward the outside, hanging over the side of the pan a little. You'll have a little open circle left in the middle of the pan.
Scoop beef mixture onto the widest part of the triangles and top with pickle slices. Bring the point over the scoop and tuck under the widest part of the triangle at the center of the ring. All the filling won't be completely covered.
Sprinkle with 1/2 cup shredded cheese and bake for 20 to 25 minutes. The ring will be nice and brown.
Remove from oven and let cool for about 5 minutes. Fill inside circle with lettuce and tomatoes.
