Whether you’re trying to please picky kiddos or a big group of grown kids, we’ve got three words for you: bacon cheeseburger bombs. A seasoned ground beef and bacon mixture is wrapped in biscuit dough with cheddar cheese and pickles. The dough’s brushed with egg whites and topped with sesame seeds, then baked to a lightly browned (and dare we say, dynamite) finish.


Watch Now: Bacon Cheeseburger Bombs


  • 1 can Pillsbury Biscuits (10 biscuits)
  • 1 pound lean ground beef
  • 1/2 onion, finely chopped
  • Salt and pepper
  • 3 slices of bacon, chopped
  • 1/3 cup cream cheese
  • 1 tablespoon ketchup
  • 2 tablespoons barbecue sauce
  • 1 teaspoon yellow mustard
  • 1 teaspoon of Worcestershire sauce
  • 5 ounces cheddar cheese, chopped into 10 squares
  • 1 egg white
  • Optional: Sesame seeds
  • Optional: Pickles

Steps to Make It

  1. Preheat oven to 375 F.

  2. In a large pan, brown ground beef, bacon and onion until cooked. Season with salt and pepper. Drain excess grease.

  3. Into the same pan, add cream cheese, ketchup, barbecue sauce, mustard and Worcestershire sauce. Stir over low heat until cream cheese is melted. Allow to cool.

  4. Roll each biscuit out thin. Place 2 tablespoons beef mixture on each biscuit and add 1 square of cheddar cheese squares. Wrap the biscuit around the beef/cheese and tightly seal the edges.

  5. Place biscuits on a parchment lined pan, seam-side down. Brush with egg white and sprinkle with sesame seeds.

  6. Place them in the oven and turn down the heat to 350 F. Bake 13 to 16 minutes or until lightly browned.

  7. Serve warm.
