Bacon Cheeseburger Buns Recipe
- 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 turkey or 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.

This sounds absolutely delicious, but I never know when it's "my turn" to serve at a football party until the last minute. On that note- I have a question rather than a comment- Could I use prepackaged crescent roll dough, pizza dough, or something like that if I'm in a hurry? Thanks!
These were great and my family loved them and we have plenty leftover to freeze for lunches. I used ground turkey instead of the beef and I think next time I'll throw the dough into the bread machine on the dough setting just for a little bit more ease. I can't wait to make these again!!
Made these for Monday Night Football...they were great...everyone liked them!
These sound great!!! For a quick dinner Id use cresent rolls. Would be good for a party too.
These are the BEST! Me and my husband are "newly married." One time I asked him what his mom used to make that he was hungry for. He said, "She used to make some kind of dough with meat and cheese in that were very good." So I called her up and this is the recipe she gave to me! It's been a favorite ever since! I also found out that the dough makes delicious dinner rolls too.
