Ground beef is my favorite meat to cook with because it's so versatile, flavorful and economical. Refrigerated biscuits save you the trouble of making dough from scratch.—Pat Chambless, Crowder, Oklahoma

Nutritional Facts

1 serving (1 each) equals 299 calories, 10 g fat (5 g saturated fat), 36 mg cholesterol, 1,101 mg sodium, 34 g carbohydrate, trace fiber, 17 g protein.

Directions

  1. In a large skillet, cook the beef, onion, salt and pepper over medium heat until meat is no longer pink; drain and cool.
  2. Place two biscuits overlapping on a floured surface; roll out into a 5-in. oval. Place about 1/4 cup of meat mixture on one side. Fold a cheese slice to fit over meat mixture. Fold dough over filling; press edges with a fork to seal. Repeat with remaining biscuits, meat mixture and cheese.
  3. Place on a greased baking sheet. Prick tops with a fork. Bake at 400° for 10 minutes or until golden brown. Yield: 5 servings.
Pricking the tips of Cheeseburger Pockets helps steam escape during baking. If you don't do this, the pockets will puff up and may break open.

Very good. Easy to make and had a good taste. I only used one biscuit for each pocket, which made more and they are good reheated. This is a keeper!!!

I made them with ground beef and sauteed onions. Delicious! I love that you could stuff the pockets with whatever ingredients you wanted to.
