Ground Beef Crescent Pie Recipe

Here is an easy ground beef recipe to the rescue.  Thank me later.

For all you moms out there who have kids who pretty much only eat ground beef, this recipe is especially for you.  All my kids gobbled it up.

They love this Beefy Onion Pie because it has a yummy crescent roll crust, ground beef filling and cheesy topping.

I love it because it only takes me ten minutes to prep it.  All I do is brown up some ground beef, pour in some soup, and then make a simple crust out of refrigerated crescent dough.

Twenty minutes in the oven, and ground beef crescent pie is served.

French Onion Hamburger Pie

I always have canned condensed French Onion Soup in my pantry.  It’s a staple ingredient along with cream of mushroom soup, chicken broth, evaporated milk and elbow macaroni which I use all the time for quick meal prep.

French Onion Soup is found in the same aisle as the cream soups and tomato soup products at the grocery store.  If you’ve never tried it before, I highly recommend grabbing a couple cans.

It has a punch of flavor in a small little can that is perfect for casseroles and main dishes.

I honestly use it so often that I’ve accumulated a whole section of my cook book dedicated to French Onion Soup recipes.  Find our list of recipes in this blog post dedicated to cooking with French Onion Soup.

What can I make with ground beef and crescent rolls?

Here are two easy options when brainstorming dinner recipes using hamburger and crescent rolls.

  1. Using a pie pan, make a crust out of the crescent rolls by separating crescent dough into eight triangles and pressing them into the greased pie plate with the points to the center forming a pie crust.  Once you’ve made a crescent roll pie crust, make your own beefy pie by browning up the ground beef and seasoning it up with practically anything you have on hand including taco seasonings, onion soup, cream soup, tomato soup or canned tomatoes, etc. Top with shredded cheese, and bake for approximately 20 minutes.
  2. Brown up the ground beef with any seasoning blend (taco seasoning, steak seasoning, Italian herbs, anything bagel, salt and black pepper).  Fill each individual crescent roll with seasoning hamburger and your favorite shredded cheese.  Roll up the crescent roll and bake according to package instructions for easy stuffed crescent bites.
