  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. Place the ground beef in a skillet over medium-high heat. Cook, stirring to crumble, until no longer pink. Add the onion to the skillet; cook and stir until tender. Drain off grease.
  3. Unroll the crescent roll dough on a clean surface. Separate the triangles and then cut each triangle in half diagonally to make 2 smaller triangles. Stack the slices of cheese and cut diagonally into 4 triangles. Place one triangle of cheese onto each triangle of dough. Spoon about a tablespoon of ground beef over the cheese and then top with a slice of pickle. Fold the points of the dough towards the center like a diaper and place on a baking sheet.
  4. Bake for 10 to 15 minutes in the preheated oven, until golden brown.

Ok, I think I have perfected this recipe...at least for us! I used 1/2 lb ground beef and 1/2 lb ground turkey. When almost browned, add one envelope of dry onion soup mix and 1/4 cup water. Once fully browned add 1 1/2 cups of shredded cheese. Stir to melt. This does help the mixture hold together as another reviewer stated. Then spoon mixture into 24 crescent rolls without cutting them up. Use three cans of rolls, 24 pickles, ect. Fold in three corners, overlapping them. Bake at 350 for 12 - 14 minutes. My guys LOVED these! The soup mix adds so much flavor and it was so much easier to assemble this way by adding the shredded cheese. Hope this works for you, too!!!

The taste was okay but this was a lot of work for it to turn out okay. Sorry for the neutral review but I don't think I will be making again.

I tried these because I am giving a baby shower, and they are adorable! Not only do they look cute but also taste great. I will make them again in a different shape for the teens in my life, because they really do taste like the sliders they all love so much. I made them, froze them, and baked them frozen. Delicious! There is just one thing...the name. "May I offer you a dirty diaper?" I don't think so; we'll be calling them "nappies" at the shower! :-)

Great recipe. Had some friends over to watch a Patriots game and made these. Gone in minutes! Some changes I would make: 1) Don't cut the triangles in half. Use a whole roll. Keep them whole and use 3 cans of rolls. I found that the original wau of cutting the trianlges in half made them too small to fold. 2) I added the shredded chedder cheese into the ground beef as I browned it and before I put it into the rolls. Made it easier to keep them in place. I have been instructed to bring these to a New Year's party we are going to because everybody requested them.

These were good, not great. In all fairness, I followed other's suggestions and added a packet of onion soup mix to the ground beef and it made the beef really onion-y and too salty. I htink next time I will just use regular seeasoning. I also added shredded cheddar to the beef and that did help keep it together. I also used pickle slices and found it helpful to cut the sides off of them to make it easier to fold the sides up. I will definitely make again but keep tweaking it to get the flavor I'm looking for. Very easy to transport and still yummy cold. Thanks for the recipe!

These are perfect for a baby shower. I made them for the one I hosted a few years ago. Everyone thought they were hilarious and delicious! I also made some "Wet Diapers" (just cheese without any meat). Huge hit all around.

Made these for my son's birthday party and everyone really seemed to enjoy them! Only thing I did diff was add some monterey jack with my cheddar. I also didn't have slice pickles, so I used dill pickle relish on some. Served w/ ketchup and mustard. I can see where you can change up the cheeses and also add other ingredients to suit your own taste. I also seasoned my hamb meat-

I made these with biscuits before but using the crescent roll dough is a huge improvement.
