Ingredients

2 whole large potatoes, plus cream for mashing

1/2  lb lean ground beef 

1 teaspoon steak seasoning

1 tablespoon Muir Glen™ organic tomato ketchup
1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
1/3 cup frozen vegetables (peas, carrots or mixed)
1 can (8 oz) Pillsbury™ refrigerated Crescent Dough Sheet

Steps

  • 1   Heat oven to 375°F. Lightly spray 12 standard muffin cups with non-stick cooking spray.
  • 2   Peel and quarter potatoes and boil in salted water until tender (about 15 minutes).
  • 3   While the potatoes cook, heat olive oil in a large non-stick skillet over medium-high heat. Add ground beef and steak seasoning and cook until browned, occasionally using a spoon to break up the meat.

  • 4   Add ketchup, Worcestershire sauce and frozen vegetables to skillet and cook 2-3 minutes until heated through. Taste for seasoning and add salt or pepper as necessary. Remove from heat and set aside.

  • 5   Unroll crescent dough on lightly floured work surface. Press dough into a 12×9-inch rectangle, and cut into 12 evenly sized squares. Place one square of dough in each muffin cup, gently pressing dough into bottom and up sides of cup.

  • 6   Drain and mash potatoes, adding cream as needed and seasoning with salt and pepper to taste.
  • 7   Fill each dough cup with 1-2 tablespoons of beef filling then top with a spoonful of mashed potato.
  • 8   Bake 15-20 minutes until dough is golden brown. Cool 5 minutes before serving.
