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

  • 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 American cheese


  1. Preheat oven to 400°. In a large skillet, cook beef, onion, salt and pepper over medium heat, crumbling beef, until meat is no longer pink; drain and cool.
  2. Place 2 biscuits overlapping on a floured surface; roll out into a 5-in. oval. Place about 1/4 cup of meat mixture on 1 side of oval. 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.
Editor's Note: Pricking the tops of Cheeseburger Pockets helps steam escape during baking. If you don't do this, the pockets will puff up and may break open.
