Hearty Beef and Cheese Pie
1-1/2 pound ground beef
1/3 cup chopped onion
1/4 cup chopped green pepper
1 (8 oz) can tomato sauce (or less)
2 (15 oz) can green beans, drained
1/4-1/8 teaspoon cumin
1/4 teaspoon garlic salt
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 egg beaten
2 cups shredded cheese
1 can crescent rolls or biscuit dough
We like less meat, more beans, and less sauce so the crust cooks better and less cumin for our taste preference.
Brown beef with onion and green pepper, drain. Add tomato sauce, green beans, cumin, garlic, and salt. Separate crescent rolls into triangles and press into a 9-inch pie pan forming a crust. Mix egg with 1 cup cheese and spread over bottom of crust. Top with meat mixture and sprinkle with remaining cheese. Bake 375 degrees for 25 minutes or until crust is browned. Let stand 5 minutes before cutting.
