3/4 pound ground beef
1/4 cup chopped onion
1 tablespoon sweet pickle relish
2 garlic cloves, minced
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon chili powder
1/4 teaspoon pepper
Dash sugar
1 cup (4 ounces) shredded cheddar cheese
2 tubes (8 ounces each) refrigerated crescent rolls

1. In a large skillet, cook beef and onion over medium heat until meat is no longer pink; drain. Stir in the pickle relish, garlic, salt, chili powder, pepper, sugar and cheese; set aside.

2. Unroll crescent dough and separate into triangles. Place 2 tablespoons beef mixture along the wide end of each triangle; carefully roll up. Place point side down, 2 inches apart on ungreased baking sheets. Bake at 375° for 11-15 minutes or until golden brown. Serve warm. Serves 8 (2 rolls each).

NOTE: I have successfully substituted 1 cup chopped, cooked beef roast for the ground beef. I omitted the onion, and substituted 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder for the minced garlic. Stir in the remaining ingredients as written.

This sort of reminds me of the Pampered Chef Cheeseburger ring. Have you ever tried it? The filling is 1lb of ground beef, onion, ketchup and mustard. You lay 2 pkgs of crescent rolls out in a circle (like they do for every other ring), then add spoonfuls of the beef mixture on top of the beef mixture you add a small triangle of American cheese (I think you need 4 or 5 slices)and a slice of dill or sweet pickle (I prefer sweet). Then fold over the crescent dough and bake. It's YUMMY!
