Bacon Cheeseburger Bombs How-To

Bacon Cheeseburger Bombs
It’s almost too easy to serve up success with blogger Amy Erickson’s bite-size flavor explosions. MORE+ LESS-
By Amy Erickson

So, I get it. Summer is almost over. Before we say goodbye for good, let’s enjoy one of summer’s best treats … the bacon cheeseburger. But not just any bacon cheeseburger, I‘m talking about a cheeseburger that literally explodes with flavor … and cheese … and crispy bacon, all wrapped up in a fluffy and crispy biscuit “bun.” 

These bacon cheeseburgers are on another level. And they’re a super simple way to feed a crowd. Just separate refrigerated biscuit dough into 8 biscuits. Cut each biscuit in half; roll each into ball. Roll out each ball with rolling pin or press with hands until about 3 inches in diameter. In the center of each biscuit round, place 1 teaspoon of cooked ground beef and 1 cube of cheese. (If using mini meatballs, gently insert 1 cube of cheese into center of each meatball; wrap meatballs in dough.) Roll up dough to completely enclose beef and cheese; pinch to seal well. Set aside.

Wrap each stuffed “bomb” with 1 bacon slice; gently secure loose bacon with toothpick by inserting it through bacon and halfway into the bomb.

In 10- to 12-inch skillet, heat oil to 350°F. Fry stuffed bombs for 4 to 5 minutes or until dough is golden brown on all sides. (If needed, remove toothpick once bacon has fried on one side in order to flip them over in the oil.) Place on paper towels to cool. Cool slightly before serving, and don’t forget to enjoy every last summer minute!
