> 1 lb 85% lean ground beef
> 1/2 cup chopped onions
> 3/4 cup Cheddar cheese sauce
> 2 (8 oz) pkgs crescent dough sheet or rolls
> 1/2 cup bread & butter pickle slices, drained


Preheat oven to 400°F. To a greased 12-inch skillet over medium, add the ground beef and onions. Cook 8–10 min., until beef is no longer pink. Drain excess oil. Stir in the cheese sauce until combined.
Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Roll out 1 package crescent dough. If using rolls, press seams of triangles together to form sheet. Cut dough into 3 rows; cut each row into 3 pieces to make a total of 9 pieces. Repeat with second package of crescent dough.
Divide beef mixture evenly among half of crescent pieces. Place 1–2 pickle slices on each. Place remaining crescent pieces on top. Seal outside edges with a fork. Bake 8–10 min., until pockets are golden and heated through.
