Cheeseburger Turnovers Recipe

If you have children like Barbara’s who can be particular at dinner time, you may have been in a situation like this one.  I need to make dinner, but what can I make that my kids will eat?  What can I make with ground beef? Oh, I’ve also got refrigerated biscuits?  What can I make with ground beef and biscuits?

Ladies and gentlemen, we have a solution!

These are almost too easy, according to Barbara. She found the recipe in a local cookbook – Shelby County Extension Homemakers 1988 Cookbook – from Martha Wood, Mother’s Night Out.

Cheeseburger Turnovers (also called Cheeseburger foldovers, Cheeseburger pockets or Cheeseburger bombs) are great for those children (and some adults) who don’t want anything too unusual or new on their plates. Barbara made these for lunch and her oldest daughter asked her to make them again for dinner.

If your family isn’t full of picky eaters, it would be really easy to add some finely chopped onion to the hamburger mix and top with with a pickle before the filling is sealed inside the biscuits. If you have BOTH kinds of eaters, then do half plain and half with the extras!

Another way to customize them is to fill with a little less OR a little more ground beef depending on who is eating them. Some children prefer the biscuit more than the filling so why waste it! Just add a bit more to the adult versions.

Notes About Cheeseburger Pockets Recipe:

  • To roll out the biscuit dough, use your fingers or a rolling pin.  This stuffed biscuit recipe with ground beef will puff up during baking, so roll out thin.
  • You can use a fairly small amount of ground beef in this cheeseburger pocket recipe, approximately 1 Tablespoon in each biscuit.  You can use more if desired, but be sure to not over-stuff or you’ll have trouble sealing the edges.
  • Brushing the biscuits with milk will give them a golden color.  Use whatever type of milk, half and half or heavy whipping cream that you have in the refrigerator.
  • One slice of American cheese goes into each cheeseburger bomb.  We fold the cheese slice in half, and then in half again.
  • Feel free to substitute shredded cheese for cheese slices in this recipe.
  • The best way to seal these easy cheeseburger pockets is with a fork.
  • This is a 4 ingredient recipe. Woo hoo! Try our other favorite 4 ingredient dishes including Cheesy Broccoli Casserole, Egg Salad, and Cheesy Potatoes.
