Mini Crescent Cheeseburgers

The taste of cheeseburgers in a simple appetizer, what more could you ask for? From the Taste of Home site (original here), the note with the recipe explains, “A friend first brought these snacks to a Sunday school party. The original recipe called for pork sausage, but I substituted ground beef with taste-tempting results. – Pam Buhr, Mexico, Missouri.” Mini Crescent Burgers are the fifth of my 25 Appetizers of Christmas.


  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 1 cup (4 ounces) shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1 envelope onion soup mix
  • 3 tubes (8 ounces each) refrigerated crescent rolls


  1. Heat oven to 375° F.
  2. In a large skillet, cook beef over medium heat until no longer pink; drain.
  3. Stir in cheese and soup mix; set aside.
  4. Separate crescent dough into triangles; cut each triangle in half lengthwise, forming two triangles.
  5. Place 1 tablespoon of the beef mixture along the wide end of each triangle.
  6. Roll up; place pointed side down 2 in. apart on ungreased baking sheets.
  7. Bake at 375° for 15 minutes or until golden brown.
