Bacon Cheeseburger Buns


2 packages (1/4 ounce each) active dry yeast

⅔ cup warm water (110° to 115°)

⅔ cup warm milk (110° to 115°)

¼ cup sugar

¼ cup shortening

2 eggs

2 teaspoons salt

4-1/2 to 5 cups all-purpose flour


1 pound sliced bacon, diced

2 pounds ground beef

1 small onion, chopped

1-1/2 teaspoons salt

½ teaspoon pepper

1 pound process cheese, cubed

3 to 4 tablespoons butter, melted

Ketchup or barbecue sauce, optional


In a large bowl, dissolve yeast in warm water. Add the milk, sugar, shortening, eggs, salt and 3-1/2 cups flour; beat until smooth. Stir in enough remaining flour to form a soft dough.

Turn onto a floured surface; knead until smooth and elastic, about 6-8 minutes. Place in a greased bowl, turning once to grease top. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 1 hour.

Meanwhile, in a large skillet, cook bacon over medium heat until crisp. Using a slotted spoon, remove to paper towels. In a Dutch oven, cook the beef, onion, salt and pepper over medium heat until meat is no longer pink; drain. Add bacon and cheese; cook and stir until cheese is melted.

Remove from the heat.

Punch dough down. Turn onto a lightly floured surface; divide into fourths. Roll each portion into an 12-in. x 8-in. rectangle; cut each into six squares. Place ¼ cup meat mixture in the center of each square. Bring corners together in the center and pinch to seal.

Place 2 in. apart on greased baking sheets. Bake at 400° for 9-11 minutes or until lightly browned. Brush with butter. Serve warm with ketchup if desired. Yield: 2 dozen.
