If ever there was a food that was better suited to a game day party than this, I've certainly never heard of it. This Cheeseburger Crescent Ring is an over-the-top party dish that's sure to be a crowd favorite at any Super Bowl party.
You get a mouthwatering, perfectly moist and juicy burger with all the toppings, but instead of a boring old bun, it's wrapped in a flaky crescent roll style pastry, cooked to golden brown perfection. With snacks this good, it barely even matters who wins the game!
- 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
- 1 onion, chopped
- 1 pound ground beef
- Kosher salt
- Freshly ground black pepper
- 1-2 tablespoon(s) yellow mustard
- 1-2 tablespoon(s) ketchup
- 2 (8 ounces each) tubes crescent rolls
- Cheddar cheese, shredded
- 1/3 cup dill pickle chips
- 1 egg, beaten with 1 tablespoon water (for egg wash)
- Sesame seeds (untoasted, for garnish, if desired)
- Desired toppings for after baking such as lettuce, tomato, pickles, etc.
Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
Meanwhile, heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add onion and sauté until soft, about 4-5 minutes. Add ground beef, breaking the meat up with a wooden spoon. Season with salt and pepper, and cook until browned all over and cooked through, another 4-5 minutes. Turn off heat and drain fat.
Return skillet over low heat and check for seasonings, adding more salt and pepper if necessary. Add ketchup and mustard and stir until evenly combined. Turn off heat.
Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper. Unroll crescent rolls, separating each triangle. Arrange in a sunburst pattern, with pointy ends of the triangles facing outward (the base of the triangles should overlap).
Spread ground beef mixture over triangle bases, forming a ring. Top with cheddar cheese then with pickle chips.
Fold triangle tips over filling (there will be gaps where meat and cheese peeks out between crescent rolls). Brush the top of the dough with egg wash and sprinkle with sesame seeds, if desired.
Bake until dough is golden and the cheese has melted, about 15-20 minutes.
