It's football season. That means it's time for junk food, eaten out of hand. But we need something other than the usual burgers, sandwiches and pizzas (although all those are good!)
Try making Burger Bombs!
I'll give you the nutritional data for what I made. If you do something different, obviously the numbers will change.
Prepare biscuits (Pillsbury Buttermilk work very well)
Raw ground meat
Slices of cheese, cut in half
- Make meatballs from the ground beef (or ground pork, or anything else). Each meatball is 1 ounce.
- Flatten the biscuit dough and stretch it to about double the original size.
- Wrap the meat with a strip of cheese.
- Place in dough and seal it shut by pinching the dough together.
- You can make many of these ahead of the game and refrigerate until needed.
- Preheat your fryer or a kettle on the stove to 375F.
- Place enough in the oil so that they are able to float around a bit. Don't pack them too tightly.
- Fry until they are golden brown as in the picture (about 4-5 minutes).
- Serve hot. (But I'll bet they'd get eaten even if cold!)
Nutritional data (per bomb):
Sat fat: 3g
Cut sausages into 1 inch lengths instead of ground meat.
Use different cheese.
Just use cubes of cheese.
Slices of beef and sauerkraut.
Your imagination is the limit
