Cheeseburger Bake

If you watch your grocery ads closely,
you will see each week features one (sometimes more)
major sale of a particular meat product.
I gear my weekly cooking
around that particular product
and save a boatload of money for my family.

However, my busy family schedule
doesn't always allow me
to be in the kitchen like I would like to be.
As a family -WE RARELY EAT OUT.
We save so much money by not eating out
when the schedule comes to push and shove.
Those are the weeks, I try to double up on my cooking.
(I will explain more about that in another post.)

The crazy busy weeks are also the weeks
I use my super fast and easy recipes.
This Cheeseburger Bake
is one of my family favs!
It's super fast and super easy to make.
I hope you enjoy it also.
Let me know if you do!

(Originally Cheeseburger Pie from Gooseberry Patch.  I switched up the name because I already had a recipe titled the same.  I also switched up the ingredients a bit to suit my family's tastes.)

1 lb ground beef
salt and pepper, to taste
minced onions, to taste
1 C sour cream
2 C shredded cheddar cheese, divided
8 oz can crescent rolls

Brown beef with salt, pepper, and onions.  Once browned, drain.  Mix together sour cream and 1C cheese.  Add browned beef and mix well.  Line the bottom of an ungreased 9x13 dish with crescent rolls; pinching seams to seal and pushing edges slightly up the side of the dish.  Layer beef mixture atop of crescent rolls.  Top with remaining cheese.  Bake according to crescent rolls package. 

TIP:  When using crescent rolls as the "crust" in a recipe, prebake the crescent rolls ALONE for 5-6 minutes before adding the rest of the ingredients.  Modify baking time accordingly and simply watch to keep rolls from getting to brown during the remaining baking time.
