McDonald's Cheeseburger!

This isn't actually a McDonalds Cheeseburger, hopefully that would be obvious, but the first time I tried it, that was the first thing that came to mind.  Contrary to what would be intelligent thought, I immediately begged for the recipe thinking it would curb my cravings for fast food... No luck, as it turns out, but it is still a MUCH healthier alternative to a McDonald's Cheeseburger.


1 lb Ground beef

1/4 cup chopped onion

4 slices processed cheese (or any cheese)

1/4 cup ketchup

2 tsp mustard (or more, if you wish)

16 dill pickle slices

2 tubes (8 ounces each) Pillsbury® Refrigerated Crescent Dinner Rolls


Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Fry the ground beef along with the onion until cooked through.  Mix in cheese, ketchup and mustard until cheese is melted and mixture is evenly mixed.

On a pizza pan or pizza stone, layer and fan each individual triangular crescent dough in a circle. The inside of the circle will be a smooth circle, while the outside will be an evenly-spaced circle of 'spikes' (I should have included a picture, sorry!).

Spread ground beef mixture evenly around the inside of the ring of dough, leaving 1/4 to 1/2 inch of dough around the inside.  Pull the spikes up and over the ring of beef and pinch into the 1/4 to 1/2 inch of dough in the middle of the circle.  Ideally, the curled in 'spikes' will be evenly spaced, and you will have a perfect wreath of dough and beef. 

I seriously need to do this again with pictures...

Anyway, bake for 20-25 minutes (or less, if using a pizza stone).  Cut and serve!
