Print Recipe

Burgers from scratch are easy to make but these are insanely easy! No patties to form, no buns to bake! Could this be real!?

Pillsbury dough is the secret here, pop the fluffy biscuit dough right into a muffin tin and fill them up with beef and gooey cheese. As soon as they come out of the oven top with any of your favorite burger toppings and everyone can customize their own!

These freeze really well. I make them ahead of time for the week and take them to work or give them to my kids for a high protein snack during the day. Make enough of them and they are the perfect full meal burgers for kids, just a little less messy.

So many options with these, change up the cheese, the meat and the toppings. You can really make them to perfectly suit your tastes. Try them out with your family this week! They will not disappoint. Satisfy that afternoon hunger or a enjoy a delicious little treat any time of day.
