What Are Cheeseburger Bombs?

Cheeseburger bombs have all the flavors of a classic cheeseburger wrapped up in fluffy biscuit dough. We stuff juicy ground beef and sharp cheddar cheese in the middle so when you bite into it, it explodes in your mouth! 

Cheeseburger Bombs Ingredients

  • Refrigerated biscuit dough: Use whatever brand of biscuits you like. 
  • Lean ground beef: Use 90/10 or above for this recipe. We don’t want the grease to make the buns soggy. 
  • Worcestershire sauce: Adds a kick of umami flavor. 
  • Burger seasoning: Use your favorite burger seasoning. 
  • Salt and pepper
  • Onion: Use white onion. 
  • Sharp cheddar cheese: Feel free to use any type of cheese you like. Pepper Jack or Monterey Jack would be great, too. 
  • Butter

How to Make Extra Cheesy Cheeseburger Bombs

Firstly, grease a baking dish and preheat your oven to 375 degrees. Now, on a clean work surface, use your fingertips to press each biscuit into a 3 to 4-inch circle. Spoon a bit of the chopped onion into the center of each biscuit and then arrange a slice of cheese over each.

Next, in a bowl, mix the beef with Worcestershire sauce, burger seasonings, and a dash of salt and pepper. Form the beef mixture into 10 small disks, approximately 1 1/2 inches wide and 1/2 inch thick. Place these small patties over the cheese and carefully cup each biscuit in your hand. Wrap dough over the patty. Pinch edges shut to seal.

Place the sealed biscuits, seam side down, in the prepared baking dish. Nestle each biscuit in the dish with about a 1-inch gap on either side. Now, brush the tops with melted butter and bake for 15 to 17 minutes or until golden brown.

Finally, remove the dish from the oven and allow it to cool for 3 to 5 minutes before serving. Enjoy these tasty biscuit-wrapped mini burgers with pickles and dipping sauces like mustard and ketchup!

What to Serve With Cheeseburger Bombs

Serve them with little takeaway cups of dipping sauce, think ketchup or mustard, or have a build-your-own sauce bar encouraging people to mix and match their toppings. Really kick things up a notch with homemade aioli. We all love a little mayo swirled in with ketchup now and then. Or some honey sriracha sauce would be pretty kicking on the go. And, of course, you can’t have cheeseburgers without fries. Serve some air fryer garlic parmesan fries for a delicious combo.

Leftovers & Reheating

Store leftover cheeseburger bombs in an airtight container in the fridge for 3-4 days. You can also freeze them for up to 3 months. 

If frozen, let your cheeseburger bombs thaw in the fridge overnight before reheating. 

To reheat: 

  1. Preheat your oven to 350F. 
  2. Pop the bombs on a baking sheet or in a baking dish.
  3. Bake for at least 10 minutes or until warm.

    1. I would be cautious making these ahead. I wouldn’t want the fat from the beef to make the dough soggy. However, if you premade and froze, then baked from frozen, they may work. Hmmm now I want to try that now!
