Cheeseburger Ring

A ring of cheeseburger, I kid you not. So the nice thing about his recipe is that if you are feeding a crowd it slices into portions very easily and it looks cool to boot.

Tweak the ingredients to your liking. I omitted the mustard and didn't add the cheese to the ground beef mixture so it would melt and combine. Instead, I added partial slices of cheese on top of the puff pastry, then the ground beef and pickles, then another slices of cheese to top it off. It doesn't really matter how you do it. It is completely trashy and good eats.

Cheeseburger Ring
Makes 1 ring, serves 3-4 people

1/4 cup onions, diced
3/4 lb lean ground beef
1/4 cup ketchup
2 teaspoons yellow mustard
8-10 slices cheddar cheese
2 (8 ounce) packages refrigerated crescent dinner rolls
16 slices dill pickles
3 large plum tomatoes
2 cups lettuce

1. Preheat oven to 375°F. In frying pan, cook ground beef with onions over medium heat 8-10 minutes or until beef is no longer pink; drain.

2. Add ketchup, mustard and 5 of the cheese slices, cut up; stir until cheese is melted. Remove pan from heat.

3. Unroll crescent dough; separate into 16 triangles. Arrange triangles in a circle on a 13-inch round pan or baking stone with points towards the outside. (There should be a 5-inch diameter opening in the center.) Scoop meat mixture evenly onto widest end of each triangle.
Top each scoop with 2 pickle slices.

4. Bring points of triangles up over filling and tuck under wide ends of dough at center of ring. (Filling will not be completely covered.) Bake 20-25 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from oven.

5. Cut each of the remaining 4 cheese slices into 4 triangles. Arrange cheese triangles over top of ring.

6. Slice tomatoes. Arrange tomato slices around inside center of ring.

7. Slice lettuce into thin strands. Place in center of ring.

8. Serve with additional ketchup and mustard, if desired.

  4. I live with my husband and daughter who's answer to the question: "what would you eat for your last meal?" is CHEESEBURGER - this is a great new twist on their favorite food, I can't wait to try it! It is DELISH looking! Can't wait to read more on your Blog - I've just discovered it!

  6. Thanks so much for posting this! I make crescent roll pockets with taco meat, salsa, and cheese and pizza pockets as well. Why have I never thought Cheeseburger Pockets? I just adapted by pressing two triangles together and filling with meat, cheese and pickle. Genius!!!!

  7. Yum! This looks delicious! And so much easier for little ones to eat than trying to hold together a cheeseburger. I'll have to give this one a try for sure!

    Saw you at Sumo's Sweet Stuff!

  20. You lost me when I saw the CHEESE!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  21. I lost you when you saw the cheese? LOL. You did read that the recipe title was ~cheese~burger right? :P

    Actually I omitted the cheese and half of it because my spouse doesn't like cheese. So you can skip it if you are not a fan.

    ReplyDelete
  22. What a great idea - genius! Great party idea and I can't wait to try this! My oldest daughter is so into the Laughing Cow cheeses so I might try it with that too!

  38. Thanks for joining us at Sundays at One Food CLub! So glad to meet you. I am loving this recipe, and seems so easy to prepare. And I have to say that I laughed with your blog name's description because as someone who does not have kids, I cannot understand why kids always have sticky hands...lol. My mother says one day I will and I'll live with it :) Hope you join us next week.

  43. Oh yummy! Good call on omitting the mustard and doing the cheese differently. This classic burger version sounds addictively delicious, and I'm imagining all sorts of creative offshoots like bacon-jalapeno and chile-Jack!

    You rock!
