Cheeseburger Stuffed Biscuits – 1960’s Inspired Recipe

Cheeseburger Stuffed Biscuits – 1960’s Inspired Recipe


(smooth jazzy music) – I’m Michelle from Cup of Zest, and today we’re gonna make
cheeseburger stuffed biscuits. This retro-recipe is
easy, packed with flavor, and super customizable. It’s perfect for Father’s Day dinner. Today’s recipe comes from this cookbook. It’s “The Sunset Ground Beef Cook Book”, and it was published in 1965. It’s packed with lots of meaty recipes. So we’re gonna start by
rolling out our biscuit dough. And we’re using a homemade biscuit dough. The original recipe actually calls to use a canned biscuit dough. You can totally do that. There’s no problem with that. But, using a homemade biscuit dough adds a little something special for dad. So we’ve rolled our dough out pretty thin, and we’re just gonna cut
some circles out of it for our little biscuits. We have six of our biscuits on our parchment-lined baking sheet, and now we get to add our
cheeseburger ingredients. This recipe is highly customizable, meaning you can put dad’s
favorite burger toppings inside these biscuits. But today, we’re gonna
use a little ground beef, and we’re gonna season it with a little salt, a little ground pepper.
(pepper grating) And this is a half a pound of ground beef. You don’t actually need
a lot for these biscuits. So we’re just gonna take a small amount, and we’re gonna make a cute little, adorable little beef patty, and put it right on our biscuit. A little finely chopped red onion, just a little right on top. Kind of smoosh it in if you want. And some sharp cheddar cheese. Just a nice little mountain
of cheese and meat and onion. It’s gonna be great. And some barbecue sauce. Just wanna do a little splash on top. And now we’re just gonna make the rest of our little burger biscuits. It’s totally okay if
it gets a little messy. It’s not a problem. We’re just gonna make a little egg wash to help seal our biscuits, and to also give them a
nice golden brown color. So I just have an egg here. We’re gonna whisk it really well. (whisking) Then we’re just gonna
brush it onto our dough. Just right along the edge, just dab it on. Next, we’re gonna take the
rest of our biscuit dough and we’re just gonna put it on top, to make a cute little biscuit burger. And now we’re gonna
crimp the edges together to keep that seal nice and tight. And now we’re just gonna poke the tops to make a little ventilation. That one’s good. Egg wash on top of our biscuits. It’s gonna give ’em a nice brown color. All right, our cheeseburger
stuffed biscuits are ready to go into the oven. They’re gonna bake at 400 degrees until the biscuits are fully cooked and the meat is fully cooked, which will take about 20 minutes. The first official Father’s Day was actually celebrated in
Washington State in 1910. And it was only a statewide holiday then. It wasn’t ’til 1972 when it
became a federal holiday. Yay, our cheeseburger biscuits are done. Let’s go ahead and plate them
with our sweet potato fries. Oh my gosh, they look so good! I can’t wait to take a
bite, so let’s do it. Oh, there’s that meaty
goodness right there. Mm-mm! It’s so good. The burger’s delicious, the
biscuit is nice and flaky, and I’m sure dad’s gonna love it. For more retro recipes,
