A Commercial Inspired Dinner

Pillsbury has a new commercial for a cheeseburger pie made with their crescent rolls.  I thought it looked and sounded very good, so I gave it try.  Only thing is, I used crescent rolls from Trader Joe's, since that is where I like to buy ground beef, preferred because it doesn't whinny. (I hope!) 



Just going by my memory of the last time I saw the commercial, I used a pound of very lean (96/4) ground beef, seasoned with Everyday Seasoning from TJ's (excellent at only $1.99), browned in a skillet, added some ketchup, a few dollops of relish (TJ's is delicious)



 and a sprinkle or three of shredded sharp cheddar cheese.  I also added two dashes of Worcestershire sauce to the beef, Pillsbury didn't



I arranged it in a small rectangle pan rather than a pie plate



Baked it in a 350 oven for 30-35 minutes



It came out of the pan easily



Very delicious, easy, quick, and fairly inexpensive for four servings, maybe one or two more.

I'll be bringing this dish to the following parties this week

  2. It reminds me of a hamburger salad we enjoy in the summer. How can one go wrong with those ingredients? Is there a problem in NY with horse meat being sold? I thought that was a Brit thing.

  3. Yum Barbara -- this looks delish! I make something similar at our house called Hungry Jack Casserole; I got the recipe from my MIL. It's still one of my hubby's favorites. I'll send you the recipe if you like.

    You're not serious about the horse meat over here, are you? I thought that was just in the UK.

  18. I wish there was a Trader Joe's around here, nothing but the normal big chain supermarkets. Looks like a nice quick dinner:@)

  19. My girls would have loved this version of hamburger pie. We used to have it as a staple around here back in the days that I was raising a family. This would have been a huge hit. I need to try it for the empty nesters when I finally have a complete kitchen to cook in.

  20. Aww. the other meat would put a giddy up in your step! :)
    I would love that, nothing hot to burn my Irish insides! :)

  26. Don't you just love quick and easy? I usually take the slow and bothersone route, (only because I hate the ingedients in the ready-made stuff, like hydrogenized palm oils and corn syrups), but boy does it ever make for more hard work. Do you know what I love though, those 1950's recipes like tuna-noodle casserole.

    1. That's why I love Trader Joe's, their products are produced with health in mind, less salt, sugar, fats, trans fats, calories, etc. This is a 'once in a blue moon' meal, I have no cholesterol issues, so it's fine.

  27. Barbara, this sounds like a wonderful family meal. I know my gang would love this. I hope you have a great day. Blessings...Mary

  28. Thanks for the recommendation on the recipe and also on the products that you love from Trader Joe's. We have one (finally) not too far from me. I've only been once, but want to go back. Someone else told me about they're lotion that they love fromTJ's.

  29. This sounds so good! Im pinning it to save for a night in ... I know my kiddos will love this!

  30. Sounds so hearty and easy. Trader Joe's is a wonderful store. Loved your saying about the whinny. Let's hope the ground beef in the US is all beef. They also said recently that some of the fish isn't what we all think it is. cheaper versions.
