These little pockets are tasty and fun to make, serve them up as snacks or party foods, or put them with a salad or side dish for lunch or dinner. So much better than buying frozen foods like them.
Better for you too.
What you need:
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.
How to make it:
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.
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.
Place on a greased baking sheet. Prick tops with a fork. Brush with egg wash
Bake 10 minutes or until golden brown.
Pricking the tips of Cheeseburger Pockets helps steam escape during baking. If you don't do this, the pockets will puff up and may break open.
