This recipe is an adaptation of one that was found, about 30 years ago, on the back of a Lipton Onion Soup mix envelope. I haven’t seen it reprinted, tho, ever since the original one that I happened upon & tried. It’s always been a big success whenever served. It tastes very similar to the infamous, little “White Castle” hamburgers. You can make a single batch just by decreasing all ingredients by half. But, I must warn you -
depending on the size of the bunch being fed-a single batch surely won’t be enough!!! It’s, also, an inexpensive & very tasty way to feed a crowd!!


2 lb. ground beef
2 pkgs. (1 box) Lipton Onion Soup mix (Original Recipe)
16 oz. grated Cheddar cheese or Colby Longhorn
2 (8 oz.) can Pillsbury refrigerated quick crescent dinner rolls (do not substitute-just not the same, light texture!!)

Preheat oven to 375ºF.

In a large frying pan, brown ground beef with Lipton Onion Soup
mix; drain. Stir in grated cheese; mix until cheese is melted. Separate
crescent dough along triangle perforations. Place on 2 ungreased
large cookie sheets or 2 large pizza pans. Stretch each individual
dough triangle out, making it a bit larger. Spread meat mixture over
center of dough triangle. Pull three corners of dough up & over meat
mixture & press down lightly so dough covers meat mixture. Some of
the meat mixture may not be covered with dough; this is ok. Bake for
15 to 20 minutes or until crust is brown.

Serve hot.
