Swap the bun for skillet-cooked crescents for a quick, fun flatbread twist on classic cheeseburgers. MORE+ LESS-
By Holly Lofthouse

Once my kids are home from school, the day gets pretty hectic! Homework and after-school activities have us constantly running around, so I tend to lean on quick and simple recipes for dinner. Lately, I’ve been loving these super easy flatbreads. My husband and kiddos go wild for these! You can load them with all of your favorite cheeseburger fixings, and they are ready in a matter of minutes, so it’s a win-win for us all.

Cheeseburger Crescent Melts

Start by heating a large non-stick skillet over medium-high heat. Add the ground beef to skillet. Crumble and cook beef until no longer pink. Drain grease.

Add the dry onion soup mix, water and ketchup to beef. Stir and cook until mixture comes to a boil. Reduce heat to low and let simmer 5 minutes.

Heat a separate large skillet over medium heat. Remove crescent dough from the can and cut into four equal rectangles.

Take one piece of dough and place it in the warm skillet. Cook the dough on each side for one minute or until golden-brown. Repeat with all dough pieces.

Take one flatbread and top with ½ cup of meat mixture. Top meat with ¼ cup shredded cheddar cheese and any of your other favorite cheeseburger toppings. Serve immediately.
