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.

Great for kids to grab!
My kids loved these! They are a lot of work but turned out great!
Used to make cheeseburger buns, similar to these, but the whole dough was wrapped entirely around the meat mixture. They made a lot, but they froze beautifully. Always great to have in a pinch, just pop in the microwave for a quick meal. This was also a TOH recipe from way back.
This was a lot of work! They were good, but not that good! I didn't have velveeta, so I used regular grated cheese and a 4 oz of cream cheese. That tasted good. I wasn't expecting them to be as big as they were, so I had tons! I shared with the neighbors. They were happy!
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!
