Cheeseburger Turnovers are perfect for the picky eaters in your family who don’t eat anything unusual, but you can easily add ingredients to them too.
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 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.
Serve them with a side of ketchup and mustard and let them dip!
