Bacon Cheeseburger Rollups

Here’s another awesome chicken dinner from my new favorite app “Big Fork Little Fork!!”  As you see, when I find something I use it and use it until we’ve tried the recipes that I “hope” everyone will enjoy!

Who doesn’t love a cheeseburger?  Hello?  Me raising hand in the air again!  I get to have the turkey burgers here at home because that’s what’s better for us!  And I did make some substitutes to this as well.  Who would have thought rolling up a cheeseburger would be as good as it was!!  Well it is.  And I’m sure if you have kids or you just love burgers, then this is for you and yours as well.

what you need

1 lb. lean ground turkey
4 slices OSCAR MAYER Bacon, chopped (I used the bag of bacon that you find in the dressing isle- less time when you have baseball!)
1 small onion, chopped (this went on mine)
1/2] lb. (8 oz.) VELVEETA®, cut into 1/2-inch cubes
1 pkg. (13.8 oz.) refrigerated pizza crust

make it

HEAT oven to 400°F.

BROWN ground turkey with bacon and onions (I added raw onions to mine after cooking) in large skillet on medium-high heat; drain. Return meat mixture to skillet. Add VELVEETA; cook 5 min. or until melted, stirring frequently. Cool 10 min.

UNROLL dough onto baking sheet sprayed with cooking spray. Press into 15×8-inch rectangle; top with meat mixture. Roll up, starting at one long side. Rearrange if necessary so roll is seam-side down.

BAKE 20 to 25 min. or until golden brown.

Enjoy this one.  The kids can certainly help with rolling out the pizza crust and rolling it back up!

Cheeseburger Buns

My mom called me last week and tried to order a pizza for delivery. She says it’s not fair to post all these recipes and pictures and she doesn’t get to eat any. So this weekend I decided I would make dinner for my family, and talked my sister Jamie into helping. We decided to make these Cheeseburger Buns I found in a Taste of Home magazine, with a few minor changes.  It seemed like it would be a fun one to make with kids, and the taste is very kid friendly too. My sister enjoyed kneading the dough, though it was pretty sticky business at first! She also had fun rolling out the dough and pinching it together over the fillings.

Dough:
1 pkg rapid rise yeast
1/3 cup warm water (110° to 115°)
1/3 cup warm milk (110° to 115°)
1/8 cup sugar
1/8 cup shortening
1 egg
1 tsp salt
2 to 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour


Filling:
1 pound ground beef or ground turkey
1 small onion, chopped
1/2 pound Velveeta Cheese, cubed
salt and pepper to taste
1 to 2 tbsp butter, melted


Makes about 1 dozen


In a large bowl, dissolve yeast in warm water. Add the milk, sugar, shortening, egg, salt and 1 1/2 cups flour; beat until smooth. Stir in enough remaining flour to form a soft dough.
Turn onto a floured surface; knead until smooth and elastic, about 6-8 minutes. Place in a greased bowl, turning once to grease top. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 30 minutes.

Meanwhile, in a large skillet, cook the beef, onion, salt and pepper over medium heat until meat is no longer pink; drain. Add cheese; cook and stir until cheese is melted. Remove from the heat.
Punch dough down. Turn onto a lightly floured surface; divide in half. Roll each portion into a rectangle about 12-in. x 8-in.; cut each into six squares. Place 1/4 cup meat mixture in the center of each square. Bring corners together in the center and pinch to seal.
Place 2 in. apart on greased baking sheets. Bake at 400° for 9-11 minutes or until lightly browned. Brush with butter. Serve warm with your favorite cheeseburger toppings.


I was impressed with the flavor and texture of the bun, it was nice and soft just like a hamburger bun. Since we used the rapid rise yeast the dough was ready by the time the filling was cooked. The filling was pretty simple and definately hit the spot for a cheeseburger craving.


My mom called and said she thought these would be good to try with sloppy joe filling.  I think that she means I should come over there and try it!
