- 1 pound ground beef
- 1/2 cup chopped onion
- 1 can (8 ounces) tomato sauce
- 1 can (4 ounces) chopped mushrooms, drained
- 1/4 cup chopped parsley
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1/4 teaspoon dried oregano, crushed
- 1/8 teaspoon pepper
- 2 packages (8 rolls each) refrigerated crescent rolls
- 3 eggs

- Brown the ground beef and onion until onion is transparent; drain off fat. Stir in tomato sauce, mushrooms, parsley, salt, oregano and pepper; set aside. Unroll 1 package of rolls and separate dough into triangles. In lightly greased 9-in. pie plate, arrange triangles with pointed ends to the center and press edges together to form a pie shell. Separate eggs; beat together whites from 3 eggs plus yolks from 2 eggs. Pour half of beaten egg mixture over pie shell. Spoon meat mixture into shell; arrange cheese slices on top. Spread with remaining beaten egg. Mix reserved egg yolk with water and set aside. Unroll second package of rolls; place four sections of dough together to form a 12-in. x 6-in. rectangle. Press edges and perforations together; roll dough into a 12-in. square. Brush edges of bottom crust with egg yolk/water mixture; place dough on top of filling. Trim; seal and flute edges. Cut slits in top crust. Brush top with the remaining egg yolk/water mixture. Loosely cover edge with foil strip to prevent over-browning. Bake at 350° for 20 minutes; cover center of pie loosely with foil and bake 20 minutes longer. Let stand 10 minutes before serving. Yield: 6 servings.
Reviews forCrescent Cheeseburger Pie
"My wife and I have fixed this for years and it always turns out perfect and tasts great."
"First time making it, I thought the crust 'arrangement' was so putzie I'd never make it again. Then I tasted it....SUPER yummy! While the crust directions seem convoluted, the end result makes it all worth it. Definitely give it a try!"
"I yearned for this dish ever since making it 15 years ago, after it first appeared in CountyWoman. Though not crazy about mushrooms, this one-dish meal is perfection. 1st place was certainly deserved in the 1992 Collector's Edition and I recommend that edition to be reprinted - it was chalked full of ground beef winners! This was one of my most fondest memories of dishes that I have ever made - and I have made a lot!"
