I've learned my obsession for cooking in cups has spilled over into cooking things in balls of dough.  I can't help myself.  

If you recall, I recently made these Cheeseburger Cups.
They were delicious and were a hit from a toddler all the way up to us 30-somethings.  
Although I enjoyed them, I thought they could be improved on just a wee bit so I decided to change it up a bit and boy oh boy were they even better!

Here's what you'll need:
1 lb. ground beef
1/2 small onion, diced
1 c. shredded cheese
2 tbsp. Worcestershire sauce
seasonings to taste (I used black pepper, house seasoning, garlic powder & crushed red pepper flakes)
2 tubes of small biscuits
1 c. shredded cheese
1 egg, beaten for egg wash
crunchy onion pieces or sesame seeds
toppings/sauces: ketchup, mustard, etc.

Preheat your oven to 400*.

Brown the ground beef with all of your seasonings of choice and adding the onions part way through.  Once the meat is cooked, removed it from the heat and let it cool for a few minutes before stirring in the Worcestershire sauce and 1 cup of cheese. 
Flatten out one biscuit and add a pinch of cheese.
Add about a tablespoon of meat mixture.
Bring the sides of the biscuit up and over the top pinching them closed to form a ball.
Place the balls on a cookie sheet about an inch apart.  Once you're done forming the balls, brush each ball with an egg wash.  I topped mine with a little bit of black pepper and crispy onion pieces.  Next time I think I'll try sesame seeds so they look like little buns.
Bake them at 400* for 15 minutes or until golden brown.
They end up being about the size of a silver dollar.
The recipe makes 20 Cheeseburger Balls.

And here's the finished product.  
I'd definitely make these again.  These would be great for a football 
game day party. They were sooooooo good! 

In fact, I'm looking forward to having the leftovers for lunch today.  



  1. Love this idea! Great for the kiddos :)

  2. I'm sure they're good, but I wouldn't touch them with a ten inch pole.

    1. That's because you have no taste. I mean, you love tswift after all.

    2. Why Shaylynn? R u Vegan? I'm trying it tonight and I don't think anything could be wrong about this recipe, yummmm :)

    3. No, she's just a brat, a wonderfully funny and sassy brat.

  3. Looks delicious! I might have to try cooking something in a ball of dough :)

  10. Found you on "The Country Cook". Definitely a party recipe. Love your blog - GO STEELERS!!

  11. I found you on The Country Cook too, love this idea, my mom use to make something similar but the meat mixture was bland and she used frozen yeast rolls (I think it's a german recipe). I'll definitely be giving this a try!

  12. Hey, my girlfriends Mom used to make these way back in the 70's, I even remember the Worcestershire sauce, for some crazy reason unknown to me, their family called them "Bunky Burgers" Yours look great and I'm glad I found the recipe, hadn't thought of them in years!

  13. Trying this tonight :)) Thanks and love your site.

  14. I wonder if these could be made in advance and frozen? Or would that alter the biscuit too much?
