Bacon Cheeseburger Pockets
A new, easy and fun way to enjoy your burger. Let the kids help build their own and they are more likely to eat it.
4 slices bacon
1/2 onion, chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 lb. ground beef
1 tube refrigerated biscuit dough
2 dill pickles, chopped
1 c. shredded Cheddar
4 tbsp. butter, melted
Ketchup, for serving
DIRECTIONS: Preheat oven to 375° and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
In a large skillet over medium heat, cook bacon until crispy. Remove bacon strips but reserve 2 tablespoons of fat in the skillet. Chop bacon. Add onion and cook until softened, about 5 minutes. Stir in garlic and cook until fragrant, then add ground beef, season with salt and pepper, and cook until no longer pink, 5-6 minutes. Drain fat.
Flatten each biscuit round to about 1/4” thickness. Top each round of dough with cooked ground beef, pickles, mustard, cooked bacon, and cheese. Pinch the edges together to create a ball. (It will look like a dumpling!) Place the burger bombs seam side-down on the baking sheet. Brush the tops of the dough with melted butter, then sprinkle with sesame seeds.
Bake until the biscuits are golden and cooked through, about 20 minutes. Serve with ketchup.
