Recipe: Cheeseburger Bombs (slider-esque) #48in48 #New Reicpe

These were da bomb! Should be called Da Bomb Bombs (now I have Ricky Martin’s Shake Your Bon Bon in my head).  Thanks to my coworker Richard for bringing me the recipe!! Try them.  Tell me if you like them!

This would be great for little kids (which, you could have a ramekin of ketchup and they could dip.)

Cheeseburger Bombs

Total Time: 0:50, Prep: 0:30, Yield: 8


  • 4 slices bacon
  • 1/2 onion, chopped (I used a whole onion, sautéed in grease not as pungent)
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced (Used two heaping teaspoons of minced garlic in a jar)
  • 1 lb. ground beef
  • 1 tube refrigerated biscuit dough  (I used the grands large biscuits)
  • 2 dill pickles, chopped (Not everyone is a fan here, omitted this)
  • 1 c. shredded Cheddar (Used Velveeta shred)
  • yellow mustard (Same as pickles)
  • 4 tbsp. butter, melted
  • sesame seeds (Didn’t have on hand)
  • Ketchup, for serving


  1. Preheat oven to 375° and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. In a large skillet over medium heat, cook bacon until crispy. Remove bacon strips but reserve 2 tablespoons of fat in the skillet. Chop bacon.
  3. Add onion and cook until softened, about 5 minutes. Stir in garlic and cook until fragrant, then add ground beef, season with salt and pepper, and cook until no longer pink, 5-6 minutes. Drain fat.
  4. Flatten each biscuit round to about 1/4” thickness. Top each round of dough with cooked ground beef, pickles, mustard, cooked bacon, and cheese. Pinch the edges together to create a ball. (It will look like a dumpling!) (The picture in the original post – link below – made them seem more like a bomb.  When I pattied out my dough, I made it round enough that I could fold over and pinch down the edges and leave on its side, more like turnovers – see my image below.)
  5. Place the burger bombs seam side-down on the baking sheet. Brush the tops of the dough with melted butter, then sprinkle with sesame seeds.  (Because I didn’t have seeds, I used spices I grill with – Grillmate Beer Can Chicken Spices – and sprinkled on top_
  6. Bake until the biscuits are golden and cooked through, about 20 minutes. Serve with ketchup


I found that I had quite a bit of burger left over.  Also, I had so much bacon that I would never use. And there was leftover cheese.  I fortunately had Orieda cubed potatoes in the freezer.  I prepared them as instructed on the bag (stove, pan, etc).  Then I took the potatoes and scooped them into a baking dish, prepared the bacon, added to leftover burger and put on top.  Then I topped with leftover shredded cheese.  I placed in the bottom oven and broiled for five minutes (until cheese was bubbly). Voila! Side dish.
