Bacon Cheeseburger Bombs
Recipe by Jordan Isom | Fire Food Family
These bacon cheeseburger bombs are essentially a hand pie loaded with a juicy, savory beef and cheese filling. To avoid all that goodness oozing out on the pan while baking, make sure to seal the bombs up very well, and place the seam-side on the bottom of each bomb.
1 lb ground beef
1-2 tbsp Burger Royale seasoning
6 oz bacon, diced
1 small onion, diced
1 jalapeno, diced
1 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
1 tbsp yellow mustard
1 tbsp F&S Original BBQ Sauce
8 oz American cheese, shredded
8 oz cheddar cheese, shredded
1 sheet puff pastry
1 egg, beaten (for egg wash)
In a small bowl, mix together the Worcestershire sauce, yellow mustard, and BBQ sauce. Place the sauce in the refrigerator to chill.
In a skillet, cook the diced bacon over medium heat until crispy. Remove the cooked bacon from the skillet, reserving 1-2 tablespoons of bacon grease in the pan. Set the bacon aside.
In the same skillet, sauté the diced onion and jalapeno until they are partially caramelized. Set them aside.
In the same skillet, add the ground beef. Sear the block of beef on both sides to enhance the flavor. Once seared, sprinkle 1-2 tablespoons of Burger Royale Seasoning over the beef. Break up and cook the beef until fully cooked through.
Add the cooked bacon, sautéed onion and jalapeno, sauce mixture, and half of the shredded American cheese to the skillet with the cooked ground beef. Mix until all the ingredients are well incorporated.
Preheat the oven to 375°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
Roll out the puff pastry sheet and cut it into 9 equal-sized squares.
Spoon 3-4 heaping spoonfuls of the bacon cheeseburger mixture onto each pastry square. Add a bit of shredded American cheese on top of the mixture.
Fold up the corners of each pastry square and shape them into balls, ensuring the filling is sealed inside.
Place the prepared balls on the parchment-lined baking sheet. Brush the tops with the beaten egg wash and sprinkle with shredded cheddar cheese.
Bake in the preheated oven for 25-30 minutes, or until the bacon cheeseburger bombs are golden brown and cooked through.
