By

A simple crescent roll crust and flavorful ground beef filling make this a great dish to prepare for a busy day meal.

Cook Time: 30 minutes

Total Time: 30 minutes

Ingredients:

  • 1 pound lean ground beef
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 1 can (8 ounces) tomato sauce
  • 1 can (4 ounces) chopped mushrooms, drained
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley or 1 1/2 tablespoons dried parsley flakes
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried oregano, crumbled
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper
  • 2 packages crescent rolls
  • 3 large eggs, divided
  • 6 slices American cheese
  • 1 tablespoon water

Preparation:

In a large, heavy skillet over medium heat, cook ground beef and onion until beef is browned. Drain off excess fat; stir in tomato sauce, drained mushrooms, parsley, salt, oregano, and pepper.

Unroll one package of crescent rolls; separate into triangles. Place in a lightly buttered 9-inch pie pan, pressing to seal perforations and form a pie shell.

Separate one of the eggs; set egg yolk aside. Beat together the 2 eggs and 1 egg white; Pour half beaten egg over pie shell. Spoon meat mixture into pie shell then arrange cheese slices over top. Pour remaining beaten egg mixture over cheese.

Mix reserved egg yolk with 1 tablespoon water. Brush a little over the pastry edges.

Unroll second package of crescent rolls. Press together to forum a rectangle about 12 x 6 inches. Press perforations together to seal. Roll out to a 12-inch square; place over filling. Trim and seal; crimp edges. Cut a few small slits in the top of the crust to vent then brush with remaining egg yolk mixture.

Cover pastry edge loosely with a strip of foil to prevent over browning. Bake pie at 350° for 20 minutes. Cover loosely with foil and bake 20 minutes longer.

We Love this!, Member tomissister

A friend of mine gave me this exact recipe 30 years ago. I have been making it ever since. I like to make it a day ahead of time, refidgeate, slice, heat in the mircowave and serve, (It slices better when cold) Kids love this, as does my hubby!
