Ingredients• 3/4 cup ketchup • 3/4 cup mayonnaise • 1 (32 ounce) jar dill pickle chips, 40 pickles finely chopped, 16 whole • 1/3 cup yellow mustard • 6 strips bacon, chopped • 1/2 small red onion, finely chopped • 1 pound ground beef • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt, plus more to taste • ground black pepper, to taste • 2 (8 ounce) packages refrigerated crescent roll dough • 5 slices American cheese, halved • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted • 1 teaspoon toasted sesame seeds
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.
In a bowl, combine the ketchup, mayonnaise, chopped pickles, and mustard.
In a large skillet over medium-high heat, cook the bacon until crispy, about 3-4 minutes per side.
Drain all by 1 tablespoon of the grease, keeping the reserved grease in the skillet.
Add the onion to the skillet and cook until softened, about 2-3 minutes, stirring occasionally.
Add the ground beef, 1/2 teaspoon of the salt, and the pepper to the skillet.
Thoroughly cook the beef, about 5-6 minutes.
Transfer the meat to a bowl and let cool for 10-15 minutes.
Add 3/4 cup of the ketchup mixture to the meat and stir.
Spray the back of a baking sheet generously with cooking spray.
Open the cans of crescent dough, and separate them into 16 triangles.
Place a 5-inch bowl in the center of the prepared baking sheet.
Arrange the triangles in a ring around the bowl. The short sides of the dough should be touching the bowl, overlapping slightly. It should look like a big sun.
Once arranged, spoon the beef mixture over the short ends of the triangles nearest the bowl.
Cover the beef you just spooned with the cheese.
Top the cheese with the whole pickles.
Remove the bowl.
Fold the pointed end of one of the triangles over the filling, tucking the tip neatly under the edge of the dough. It will not fully cover the filling, but should cover the pickle.
Bake the ring until the dough is golden brown and the cheese is melted, about 25 minutes.
When you remove the ring, brush the ring with the butter and top it with the sesame seeds.
Allow the ring to cool for 10-15 minutes.
Serve with the remaining ketchup sauce.
