Tuna Crescent Roll Pies

I made up a recipe today as I had to use up a can of Pillsbury Crescent Rolls.

I used to make a similar pie a while ago, but instead of using cheese pastry I used the crescent rolls instead today.

Ingredients:

1 package Crescent Rolls
1 onion finely chopped
1 can tuna
1/2 cup grated cheese
salt & pepper
lemon juice (optional)


(The onion was still to go into the food processor at that point)

Mix all the ingredients together, other than the crescent rolls. I prepared this in the morning and popped it into the fridge until this evening, it keeps well.



Take your crescent rolls out of the tube and keep two rolls together to make four rectangles. Squish the seams together.



Place some of the filling on top of the dough.



Dampen the edges of the dough with water and place the remainder of the dough on top of the bottom's to make a pie and seal shut. Make some air holes in the top of the dough.



Place in a pre-heated 375 oF oven and bake for approx. 15 to 20 minutes. Just before the end sprinkle some more grated cheese on the top and allow to melt.



Now this made two pies for us with one tube of crescent rolls. However I have plenty of the tuna mixture leftover, which I am going to put on toast for lunches. So if you used another tube of crescent rolls, the mixture would make four pies no bother.

Adapt it though to what your family likes. A word of warning though, make sure you do chop up the onion finely, otherwise it won't be fully cooked.

you could try this with chopped up ham, or cooked bacon, even ground beef that had been browned and drained?

After seeing your recipe I decided to make a variation of this for a late breakfast yesterday. My filling was cooked bacon, scrambled eggs, onion & cheese. It was pretty good and even tasted good cold for my breakfast this morning :) I forgot to add some cheese to the top in the last few minutes of baking though. Thanks for the inspiration!
