Basic recipe is from the "Dining on a Dime" cookbook. Additions are mine.
- 1⁄4 lb ground beef
- 1⁄2 teaspoon onion powder
- 1⁄2 teaspoon garlic powder
- salt & pepper, to taste
- 1⁄2 cup cheddar cheese, grated
- bread dough, prepared (I use Ninety Minute Rolls)
- crumbled cooked bacon (optional)
- barbecue sauce (optional)
- Make one batch of 90 minute roll dough. Roll into 12 3" circles.
- In a saucepan, brown ground beef.
- Add seasonings and stir.
- Place 1 T of beef in center of 1 circle of dough. Add 1 T. cheese.
- Place second circle of dough on top and press to seal edges.
- Place on a baking sheet that has been sprayed with cooking spray.
- Bake at 350 for 10-15 minutes or until golden brown.
- To prepare for oamc: Allow to cool completely. Wrap individually in plastic wrap and place in a freezer bag. Seal, label the bag and freeze.
- To reheat: Allow to thaw in fridge if time. Microwave for about 45 seconds to 1 minute or until hot. For a crisper crust, reheat in the oven at 350 for about 10 minutes.
We love these at our house! I modified the recipe a little because the first time I made them I felt like there was a little too much bread so now I just flatten out a single thawed out frozen dinner roll and fill that with the meat and pinch it shut. But they are definitely an over and over again meal.
thanks for the recipe. these were real easy to make. i added the bbq sauce and they ended up tasting more like sloppy joes than cheeseburgers. i took the suggestion of using frozen roll dough, didn't roll them, but used my damp hands to flatten them to the correct shape, i also sealed them with a fork. I pressed the meat firmly, which helped pack them since the first couple i made were more dough than filling. they never made it to the freezer, so i will have to make more next time. thanks again
I now keep a batch of these in the freezer at all times for a quick grab and go snack. The first ones I made had too much bread compared to the filling, but others have been better. I can't usually find frozen roll dough, so I either make my own or use Pillsbury biscuits (which are the favorite method in my household). The filling is very versatile so we never get tired of these. Thanks for a great freezer friendly idea.
