Ingredients

  • 1 pound ground beef
  • Salt and Pepper to taste
  • 2 cans of refrigerated biscuits 8 count
  • 8 slices of American cheese
  • 1/4 cup milk

Instructions

  • Brown ground beef seasoned with salt and pepper; drain excess grease.
  • Flatten canned biscuits.
  • Put one heaping Tablespoon of ground beef in center of biscuit.
  • Fold the cheese slices in half and half again and put on top of beef.
  • Top with another biscuit, and seal the edges with a fork; prick top with fork.
  • Place them on an ungreased cookie sheet.
  • Brush top of biscuits with milk.
  • Bake at 425 degrees F for 8 to 10 minutes.

Notes

  • 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.
