Bacon Cheeseburger Puffs
Photo by: Stephanie - PlainChicken
1/2 pound ground beef
1 1/2 cups biscuit/baking mix (Bisquick)
2 cups shredded Cheddar cheese
3 oz bacon pieces
6-7 Tbps buttermilk
No Bisquick - here's a scratch biscuit mix recipe (6 cups)
5 cups flour
¼ cup baking powder
2 Tbsp. sugar
1 tsp. salt
1 cup butter or margarine
Mix together flour, baking powder, sugar and salt. Cut in butter until mixture is crumbly.
Store in an airtight container for up to 6 weeks or in the freezer for longer storage.
Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
In a skillet, cook and crumble ground beef until no longer pink; drain. In a bowl, combine biscuit mix, bacon and cheese; stir in cooked beef. Add buttermilk and toss with a fork until just moistened. Shape into 1-1/2-in. balls. (I used a medium cookie scoop) Place 2 inches apart on ungreased baking sheets.
Bake for 12-15 minutes or until puffed and golden brown. Cool on wire racks.
Baked puffs may be frozen; reheat at 400 degrees F for 7-9 minutes or until heated through (they do not need to thawed first).
Great way to make sure the bacon doesn't fall off your sandwich :)
