Homesteader Beef Pie

I used to make this back home when I was young. We thought it was really fancy! Kids will love it – and adults too (who doesn’t love those Pillsbury crescent rolls?). It is very filling, serve it with a lettuce salad, and you’ll be set.

Total time
Italian seasoned ground beef pie with Pillsbury Crescent Rolls crust.
Recipe type: Main
Cuisine: American
Serves: 4
  • 1 pound ground beef
  • ½ cup chopped onion
  • 1 can (5½ oz.) tomato paste
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon Italian seasoning
  • Dash of pepper
  • 1 can (8 oz.) Pillsbury Crescent Rolls
  • 6 process cheese slices
  1. In a medium frying pan brown the ground beef. Add the onion and cook until tender. Drain off fat. Stir in tomato paste and seasonings.
  2. Lightly grease a 9 inch pie pan. Separate the crescent dough into 8 triangles. Place in the pie pan, pressing the triangles together, to form a crust.
  3. Fill with half of the meat mixture. Top with 3 cheese slices, then the rest of the meat. Bake at 375 degrees F. for 25 minutes, until the crust is golden brown.
  4. Cut each of the remaining 3 cheese slices into 4 lengthwise strips. Arrange the strips over the pie to form a lattice. Return to the oven until the cheese melts. Makes 4 to 6 servings.
