My mom made these fairly often when I was growing up. They are easy, cheap, and customizable. Recipe is easily doubled and leftovers freeze well.

Ingredients

1/2 lb
ground beef
1/2 medium
onion, diced
1 pinch
garlic salt or seasoning salt
1 pinch
ground pepper
1 pinch
savory
2 Tbsp
chives
1
pillsbury crescent sheet or roll of crescents
1 c
shredded cheese
4 slice
bacon, cooked and chopped (optional)

Step-By-Step

1Preheat oven to 375*. Line baking sheet with parchment.
2Brown ground beef and onion in a skillet. Drain.
3If using a seamless Crescent sheet, cut dough into quarters. If using Crescent rolls, put two rolls together to form a rectangle.
4Lightly press dough to flatten and widen. Spoon 1/4 of the beef mixture onto dough, top with 1/4 of the cheese. Fold corners and sides up to form a packet. Place folded side down on parchment covered baking sheet. Repeat with remaining ingredients.
5Bake for 20 minutes, or until golden brown.
6I have substituted pie crust and raw bread dough (like Rhodes rolls) will equal success.

OPTIONAL: The meat filling may be changed with taco seasoning, cream of mushroom soup, or any ingredients of your choice.
