Bacon Cheese Burger Buns

These have quickly become a favorite with those I have shared them with. A perfect 'on-the-go' straight from the freezer meal is one of the reasons (besides bacon, hamburger, cheese, and homemade bread dough) these are greatly enjoyed by my husband.

Dough Ingredients:
4 1/2 teaspoons active dry yeast
2/3 cup warm water
2/3 cup warm milk
1/4 cup sugar
2 eggs
2 teaspoons salt
4 1/2- 5 cups flour

Dough directions: Mix warm water, warm milk, and sugar and have yeast dissolve in liquid until bubbled. Add eggs and salt. Mix with 3 1/2 cups flour until smooth, stir in enough to form soft dough, turn onto flour surface and knead 6-8 minutes. Place dough in a greased bowl, turn once, let raise for 1 hour or until doubled. 

***When I originally made this dough I miscalculated how much time I had... ooops. I HATE wasting dough. I usually raise my pizza dough in the fridge but wasn't sure if it would work the same way with a less hearty bread dough. I held my breathe, crossed my fingers and covered the bowl with some plastic wrap and placed it in the fridge where it sat over night. The next afternoon I took it out, covered it up and placed it in front of the fireplace. IT RAISED! Yes, it took awhile but it still raised! Phew! 

Filling Ingredients:
2lbs sliced bacon
2lbs ground beef
1 small onion chopped
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 lb velveeta cheese cubed

Filling directions: In a large skillet cook bacon until crispy over medium heat. Remove bacon and grease, cook beef, then saute onion, add all back in with salt, pepper, garlic, stir in cheese till melted.

Assembling: Divide dough into fourths, roll each 4th into 12"x8" rectangle. Cut each into 6 squares. Place 1/4 cup of filling into the center of each square. Pinch opposite corners and seals. Place 2" apart on a greased baking sheet. Bake at 400' for 9-11 minutes or until lightly brown. Yields 2 dozen.


  1. Ok, you're just ridiculous (in a good way). HOW in the world can you roll something into a perfect rectangle like that? I can't do it for the life of me!!

  2. Rosanne, the trick is in the tugging of the corners. And the scrunching of everything else. :)


I love reading your comments so please don't be shy! I'll usually even invite myself over after you've dropped a note to see what you're up to!
