Beef 'n Cheese Crescent Pie

This is my mom's recipe and one of my favorites from way back . . . it is quick and easy.  It is even better the next day!

Sorry I don't have photos, but will take some the next time I make this.


1 1/4 lb. ground beef
1/2 cup onion
1/3 cup bell pepper
8 oz can tomato sauce w/mushrooms
1 can french style green beans, drained
1/4 tsp garlic salt
1/4 tsp salt
8 oz can refrigerator crescent dinner rolls
1 egg, slightly beaten
2 cups cheddar cheese


Preheat oven to 375

In large frying pan, brown ground meat, onion and bell peppers - drain - stir in tomato sauce, beans, garlic and salt.

Simmer while preparing crust.  Separate crescent dough into 8 triangles.  Place triangles in ungreased 9" pie pan.  Press over bottom and up sides to form crust.

Combine egg and 1 cup cheese and spread over crust.

Spoon mixture in crust.

Sprinkle with remaining cheese and paprika.

Bake at 375 for 20-25 minutes
