Muffin-Cup Cheddar Beef Pies


  • 2 loaves (1 pound each) frozen bread dough
  • 2 pounds ground beef
  • 1 can (8 ounces) mushroom stems and pieces, drained
  • 1-1/4 cups shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons Italian seasoning
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • Spaghetti sauce, warmed


  • 1. Let dough stand at room temperature until softened, about 30 minutes. Preheat oven to 350°. Meanwhile, in a Dutch oven, cook beef over medium heat until no longer pink, breaking into crumbles, 12-15 minutes; drain. Stir in mushrooms, cheese and seasonings.
  • 2. Divide each loaf into 10 portions; roll each into a 4-in. circle. Top with 1/4 cup filling; bring edges of dough up over filling and pinch to seal.
  • 3. Place meat pies in greased muffin cups, seam side down. Bake until golden brown, 20-25 minutes. Serve with spaghetti sauce.
    Freeze option: Freeze cooled beef pies in a freezer container. To use, reheat beef pies on greased baking sheets in a preheated 350° oven until heated through.

    Roll out dough as if for Bierocks smear a bit iof spaghetti sauce on dough before adding meat and bake on sheet pan. Freeze for quick snacks. I've even added to hamburger after frying.

    We did a taco version - cheese, taco seasoning, and salsa instead of the mushrooms, italian seasoning and spaghetti sauce. It was AMAZING! This recipe will definitely make the weekly rotation! Thank you!

    These are great. I didn't have any frozen bread dough so I rolled out individual Grands biscuits and wrapped them around the filling. Yummy. I made mini bacon cheeseburger the second time. A big hit. Thanks.

    There are only 3 of us at home so cut the receipe in half. Very good. My husband said that they reminded him of a mini wrapped burger. I put the frozen bread dough in the fridge overnight and it was very easy to work with and there was no need to wait the 30 minutes as suggested. I will make this again.
