Cheeseburger Crescent Casserole

Anyone who has been watching TV lately (guilty as charged!) has seen a Pillsbury commercial with a quick demo of how to make their Cheeseburger Crescent Casserole. After seeing this commercial SEVERAL times during my hour show I decided, "why not?! Maybe they'll quit playing the commercial if I just make it!" Side note, that didn't work out... but the recipe DID! I did a couple things different to add some more flavor... Here we go!

Pillsbury gives the directions as follows:
1 lb ground beef, cooked, drained
1/2 cup ketchup
1/4 cup dill pickle relish
1 1/2 cups shredded American cheese (6 oz)
1 can (8 oz) Pillsbury® refrigerated crescent dinner rolls
I added:
1 TB butter
2 cloves garlic minced
1/4 cup sweet onion finely chopped
*reduce ketchup to 1/4 cup
1/4 cup BBQ sauce (I prefer famous daves)
1/2 cup Pepper Jack cheese
*For a spicy kick add some diced green chili's or jalapenos!
Heat oven to 375°F. In 10-inch skillet sautee garlic and onion in 1 TB butter. Add beef and cook thuroughly. Add BBQ sauce and ketchup. Heat over medium-high heat until hot, stirring occasionally. Stir in relish and 1 cup american cheese. Spoon into ungreased 9- or 10-inch glass pie plate.
Separate dough into 8 triangles; roll up 1 inch on shortest side of each dough triangle. Place dough on top of meat mixture in spoke pattern with points towards center. Sprinkle with remaining 1/2 cup American cheese and Pepper Jack Cheese.  
Bake15 to 20 minutes or until cheese is melted.
