Ingredients

  • 1 Pound ground beef
  • 4 slices cheese
  • 1/4 Cup minced sweet onion
  • 1/8 Teaspoon ground pepper
  • 1/8 Teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 Teaspoon paprika
  • 16 sliced pickles or jalapeños
  • 2 8-ounce packages of refrigerated crescent rolls

Directions

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. On ungreased cookie sheets divide crescent roll dough into rectangles. Do not separate at the diagonal perforations. (Try pinching the diagonal perforation together to make a solid piece of dough). 

In a medium mixing bowl, mix the 1 pound of Steakhouse Elite ground beef together with the onion, salt, pepper, and paprika.

Place ¼ cup of the beef mixture onto each crescent sheet; top with your pickles or jalapeños. Stretch dough over meat.

Bake in preheated oven until golden brown, about 21 minutes.

Cheeseburger Shopping Tip

Most cattle are fed a diet of grass until they are sent to a feedlot – where they are finished on corn. When possible, choose beef from cattle that are “100% grass fed” - it will be more expensive, but better for your health.

Cheeseburger Cooking Tip

Cook your burger over high heat to form a crust that will seal in the meat's juices and flavor.
