Cheeseburger Buns Recipe
- 2 packages (1/4 ounce each) active dry yeast
- 1/2 cup warm water (110° to 115°)
- 3/4 cup warm milk (110° to 115°)
- 1/4 cup sugar
- 1/4 cup shortening
- 1 egg
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 3-1/2 to 4 cups King Arthur Unbleached All-Purpose Flour
- 1-1/2 pounds ground beef
- 1/4 cup chopped onion
- 1 can (8 ounces) tomato sauce
- 8 slices process American cheese, quartered
- In a large bowl, dissolve yeast in warm water. Add the milk, sugar, shortening, egg, salt and 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 4-6 minutes. Place in a greased bowl, turning once to grease top. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 30 minutes.
- In a large skillet, cook beef and onion over medium heat until meat is no longer pink; drain. Stir in tomato sauce. Remove from the heat; set aside.
- Punch dough down; divide into 16 pieces. On a lightly floured surface, gently roll out and stretch each piece into a 5-in. circle. Top each circle with two pieces of cheese and about 3 tablespoons beef mixture. Bring dough over filling to center; pinch edges to seal.
- Place seam side down on a greased baking sheet. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 20 minutes. Bake at 400° for 8-12 minutes or until golden brown. Serve warm. Refrigerate leftovers. Yield: 16 sandwiches.

At least one evening a week I work, and I try to make something during the day that is easy for my teens to just grab and eat. Made these for the first time this week. Next time, I will double the hamburger filling recipe. The dough expanded A LOT, and therefore the filling in the middle was so spread out and thin it was like eating a big roll with only a few crumbles of hamburger. Plus, I ran out before I filled all 16, so the last few I filled with ham and cheese. I will make these again, and I'm sure they will be better with more filling.
It was yummy, and my son really liked it. I dipped it in ketchup and mustard.
Love this recipe!!!
This is one of the best recipes I've had in the house for a long time!! Great idea and they freeze so easily. Stuff with whatever you want. This recipe is so versatile with what can go into the middle.
This is my favorite freezer cooking recipe, these taste great reheated. I just prepare as directed, bake several minutes (but not until golden, only until dough appears baked), wrap individually in foil, freeze and when reheating remove foil, wrap in paper towel and heat 2 mins or so in microwave. I make this exact recipe and a variation with pizza filling instead, always a hit! I have officially quit buying hot pockets!
