- 2 packages (1/4 ounce each) active dry yeast
- 2/3 cup warm water (110° to 115°)
- 2/3 cup warm milk (110° to 115°)
- 1/4 cup sugar
- 1/4 cup shortening
- 2 eggs
- 2 teaspoons salt
- 4-1/2 to 5 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 pound sliced bacon, diced
- 2 pounds ground beef
- 1 small onion, chopped
- 1-1/2 teaspoons salt
- 1/2 teaspoon pepper
- 1 pound process cheese (Velveeta), cubed
- 3 to 4 tablespoons butter, melted
- Ketchup or barbecue sauce, optional
- In a large bowl, dissolve yeast in warm water. Add the milk, sugar, shortening, eggs, salt and 3-1/2 cups flour; beat until smooth. Stir in enough remaining flour to form a soft dough.
- Turn onto a floured surface; knead until smooth and elastic, about 6-8 minutes. Place in a greased bowl, turning once to grease top. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 1 hour.
- Meanwhile, in a large skillet, cook bacon over medium heat until crisp. Using a slotted spoon, remove to paper towels. In a Dutch oven, cook the beef, onion, salt and pepper over medium heat until meat is no longer pink; drain. Add bacon and cheese; cook and stir until cheese is melted. Remove from the heat.
- Punch dough down. Turn onto a lightly floured surface; divide into fourths. Roll each portion into an 12-in. x 8-in. rectangle; cut each into six squares. Place 1/4 cup meat mixture in the center of each square. Bring corners together in the center and pinch to seal.
- Place 2 in. apart on greased baking sheets. Bake at 400° for 9-11 minutes or until lightly browned. Brush with butter. Serve warm, with ketchup if desired. Yield: 2 dozen.

"Oh my wow these are good! My husband does not care for ground beef so I used ground lamb...big hit"
"These were absolutely delicious! We could not stop eating them. I made them for a Super Bowl party I used crescent roll dough and the recipe made 32. I sealed 2 triangles together and then cut that rectangle in half to make 2 squares Put a glob of meat in the center. The pulled all corners together to seal. They were baked about 10 minutes until golden brown. They were an absolute hit,! Great for parties!"
"I am sure they are great but I will have to use ready made pastry dough and make the filling."
"This sounds really good. I definitely want to try this recipe. It has to be great for finger or bite sized food for a party. This will be Great For Super Bowl Sunday Parties!!!"
"I plan on making a batch of these as soon as I get the ingredients. I read one review and it said she freezes them on cookie sheets before baking them. I want to do the same and be able to pull out as many as I need and then bake. Can anyone tell me whether I would need to thaw before baking or just bake frozen. Thanks for your help and advice."
