Cheeseburger Pockets Recipe

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
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 30 min. Bake: 10 min. YIELD:5 servings

Ingredients

  • 1/2 pound ground beef
  • 1 tablespoon chopped onion
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 tube (12 ounces) refrigerated buttermilk biscuits
  • 5 slices process American cheese

Directions

  • 1. Preheat oven to 400°. In a large skillet, cook 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 10 minutes or until golden brown. Yield: 5 servings.

"After reading the reviews I decided to cook bacon to go in the beef mixture, along with adding ketchup and seasoned salt. I definitely will make this again, probably will try BBQ sauce in meat mix, next time."

"As written they are simple and good, but could use some oomph, some steak seasoning or whatever you like to put in your burger mix. Next time I'd add ketchup and mustard either to the mixture, or as a glaze on the outside of the pockets. I am not a fan of American Cheese, so I used shredded cheddar. You could also brush the outside with egg wash and sprinkle on some sesame seeds."

"These hit the comfort spot with me - typical American kids food!! My husband really enjoyed them and they were a nice change from usual meat/potatoes. I used sausage meat cuz that's what I had, seasoned it with garlic and a blob of cheez whiz on top cuz I didn't have cheese slices. You could really put whatever meat/herbs/seasonings you wanted in these and they would turn out yummy!"

"My very picky husband and son really enjoyed these. To save time I use dried minced onion vs. chopping fresh. They were super easy and fast to put together for weeknight dinner and my son could help which is a plus since he's 3. Also think we can easily customize to try different flavors, tastes and still appeal to their specific requests. Next time I think I'd add some diced tomatoes or green pepper to try for a more Mexican flavor. We'll make these again for sure!"

"My family LOVES these cute little meat pockets and have been making them for years. I too use the large biscuits. I make a very large batch and freeze part of them in zip bags then pull out of the freezer and either microwave wrapped in a paper towel or throw in the toaster overn for quick meals. I've also substituted sausage for the hamburger and then scrambled some eggs and made breakfast pouches. This is a great versatile recipe."

"The original filling is great, but can easily be changed to suit your taste. Also, I just roll each biscuit out individually, making the top one slightly larger; add the filling; top with the larger biscut and seal the edge with a fork."
