These are actually a really  great simple dinner, lunch or even a great snack.  If you have any leftovers, these reheat perfectly.  We make them ahead of time and add them to lunches.  Not only do they kids love them, they take about 30 seconds to reheat and are so much better than store bought pizza pockets!

You can find biscuits in the refrigerator section of most supermarkets making these extra easy and quick.  If you don’t want to use pre-made biscuits, you can use homemade biscuits and get great results!  Mushrooms or grated carrots are the perfect way to add some extra veggies to this recipe!

  1. This is my most requested item that I love to make. The only change I make is homemade bread dough. It is a lot more work but so worth the effort, plus I triple the recipe because in my house they don’t last long.

  2. Made this for a party following the directions exactly and it was a hit! I got another request for it for our next party, this time I’m going to half the biscuits and make smaller one bite portions.5 stars

  3. Yum, these look and sound so good…. will try them soon. Could u please tell me how large of a circle did you roll the biscuit dough into? An approximate size please…. so I can have a idea when I make these. I also think the Pizza Bombs sound amazing too! Thanks so much. :)5 stars

  4. I made this last night for dinner and it was amazing! My husband wasn’t a fan of the sweetness from the cream cheese, and I substituted Colby Jack for the cheese cubes, but I thought the recipe itself was fantastic and so creative. It was also really easy to make which I appreciated. I plan on trying to make these as mushroom and swiss burger bombs, and definitely hot ham and cheese bombs!5 stars

    1. Those sound like delicious variations of this recipe Jennifer! I am so glad you enjoyed the recipe!

  5. These were AWESOME!!!! Everyone loved them, perfect size for my younger kids. Will absolutely make again. Easy prep, looked pretty, tasted great!5 stars

  6. These are just finishing up in the oven now! Can’t wait…

    A couple suggestions though, 350 degrees was not hot enough in our crappy old non-convection oven for a 13-16 minute window. They’re in there a total of 23-24 minutes to get brown. Could probably just bump that up to 375 if your oven’s old.

    Also, the meat filling makes almost 2x what you need for 10 of these suckers! Good left-over opty for the bacon cheeseburger egg rolls =D (or cut the filling part in half sans cheese, you want 5 oz cheese).

    1. Thank you for the tips on the oven!

      Stuff the leftovers in mushrooms and bake if you’ve got extra, so good! ;)

  7. So good, I add some extra condiments depending on what you like but this is such a great recipe!!! Not dry and no you don’t taste the cream cheese. They are gooey and delicious 5 stars

  8. My whole family absolutely loves this one! I’ve made it several times. I never have leftovers, even when I tripled the recipe!5 stars

  9. Good day Holly – this is basically pizza dough you are using for your bacon cheeseburger bombs – is that correct please !

  10. Glad I came across this idea on pinterest, saved my life tonight! Couldn’t make it to the store, so I just had to use what I had in my refrigerator and pantry. I used plain non-fat greek yogurt instead of cream cheese because I didn’t know I had cream cheese available, and the sauce still came out great. And instead of the balls, I made them like meat patties or hot pockets, using two biscuit dough slices each. Happy with the results and tastes JUST like a cheeseburger, and I didn’t even need fries! I was stuffed after the first one.5 stars

  11. I just got done making this for a lunch I made for my sister and I and we were both wowed by the flavor. Very good and will definitely make it again!4 stars

  12. My husband made these and they are sooo good! Our daughter loved these just as much as we did! We doubled the recipe because we wanted some the next day and they are just as good as the day you made them…so, just in case anyone is wondering, yes these can be stored in the fridge and still be just as yummy reheated! Thanks for sharing this recipe.

  13. these are SO GOOD! The cream cheese I planned on using had gone bad so I dug around the fridge to find a substitute, I found a little babybel cheese and thought “why not?” It worked really well and added some flavor. I also added chopped pickles yum!

  14. More like Amazebombs!! I added some jalapeno. Used my homemade Bisquick mix and had to make another 1/2 bath. Mine were quite small. I used an English muffin cutter and then tried to roll out more. I had about 18 small bombs.

    Next time I will roll out thicker, cut, and then roll thin to fill. Baked on a silapat mat. Perfect. Although I ended up turning up the heat as they were not browning.

    1. I’m so glad you enjoyed them! Thank you for the feedback on using your own biscuit mix, I know not everyone can get the premade biscuits!

  15. Going to make these tonight. =) we’ll see how it goes! Looks yummy and easy! Two of the best things to look for when you are alone and cooking for one!

  16. There are some really good ideas for the SuperBowl here. I think that I may have to make the Bacon Cheeseburger Bombs for my son-in-law. They sound perfect for him. Thank you for sharing at Idea Box Link Up Party.

  17. Tried these tonight. Pretty good need to make some adjustments to our taste. I would love to try these as mushroom Swiss burger bombs.

  18. This looks so good! Just got ingredients and about to try it out. I am going to substitute in butterkase cheese for cheddar since I think it adds to the rich smiley flavor. Will post results!

  19. Finally made these yesterday after printing the recipe months ago. Found them to be fine, but not great. If I make them again, I’ll add more bacon and eliminate the mustard. Maybe eliminate the egg white, too? It’s probably to help hold everything together, but I think they’d be OK without it, and it’s just another step. Not “difficult” by any means, but a bit labor-intensive for the result. Hot, hearty and filling, and those are all good things. I’ll probably try again.

  20. These little morsels proved to be very difficult for me to make! The filling is delicious as is all of the other ingredients however, the biscuits proved to be a huge challenge to work with… I ended up with holes in the dough and easily had enough filling left over to make another whole batch if I wanted to… I am a father with, what I feel are, above-average cooking skills and the preparation for me was very disheartening… And of course the “how to” video makes it “look” so easy that it made the whole experience even worse for me… I was so excited about making these when I saw the video and BEFORE I dove into the recipe… I only hope my next attempt at one of these yummy appearing meals goes better than this one did… Disappointed…

    1. I’ve made these several times and the only time I’ve ever had issues with the dough was when I used a store brand of dough. I find that it there is moisture the dough can seem to break apart and not seal correctly. Using Pillsbury brand has eliminated this issue for me. Hopefully that helps!

  21. ive tried leaving a comment before but it never posted. What kind of biscuits did you use? were they regular or flaky, flavored or original, grands or straight pillsbury? ive had a problem before with recipes because i used the wrong biscuits.

    1. just ignore my question above i finally found my original post haha. i will be making these tuesday? any suggestion on sides to go with it besides french fries or onion rings

  22. When you store these do they get soggy? I am trying to find easy make ahead dishes for camping and these look really good. I’m just not sure how well they would cook up over a camp fire

    1. I haven’t tried cooking/heating these on a campfire but they do not get soggy when storing if they’ve been baked first.

  23. I am trying these tonight… Would Colby jack cheese taste ok?? I can’t wait to try them my husband has been begging me too make.. Also thinking of adding some jalapeño into it to make a little spicy

  24. I made these last night bc they look so simple and tasty..and they are :) ! I read that they reheated nice and I was skeptical but heated up 2 in the microwave for lunch today and the biscuit wasn’t soggy or anything. (they reheat like a dream!) my kids loved them and I will be making these again sometime soon! for larger crowds definitely double or triple the recipe. The only thing I ran into that I will do differently is not cook the bacon with the ground beef and onion ..bacon takes way too long to cook and with all the grease from the meats took even longer dot some reason .in fact I will l3va rout bacon next time as it wasn’t even necessary for all the goodness these cheeseburger bombs deliver..thanks for the recipe. Love it!

    1. I would suggest making the filling ahead of time and filling the rolls the day of. They can certainly be refrigerated a few hours but I’m not sure how they would do overnight.

  25. So many biscuits out there these days… Can you tell me what you used. Such as flaky or non, buttermilk, butter, jumbo….. You get the idea right haha. Im sure some work better than others so just want to try yours first

  26. These are great! I made mine in the toaster oven so you have to reduce the heat so the biscuit cooks completely. I cooked them at 250 for 20 minutes.
    Parchment paper works great.
    I can pack them for my lunch at work. I am going to play around with the seasonings a bit.

  27. I just made these for my 4 kids and hub…third batch is in the oven and I haven’t gotten to taste one yet! I think they’re a hit…so I got jumbo butter biscuits thinking they’d be easier to roll out…not the case. I ended up just stretching them to size. I think the butter chunks were the problem so might work better with plain or buttermilk. I 2nd the suggestion for smaller pieces of cheese and/or mixing it right in. My family thanks you!

  28. These look so amazing! I plan to make them soon! Just curious, on the ingredients list you said you used canned biscuits but on the bottom is says crescent rolls. Which would work better for this recipe?

  29. Made these with what I had on hand, basically followed your recipe omitted bacon and substituted Soy Sauce for Worcestershire sauce. Added 1/2 c butternut squash puree to beef and cut back cream cheese to 4 oz. Turned out great! Thanks for a quick family friendly meal! Love the presentation!!

    1. The biscuits come in a can and are a raw dough (similar to a scone). They are found in the refrigerator section in most North American supermarkets.

  30. Going to try making these tonight. But had a question. Was wondering if they would be good if you used steak um with them instead of ground beef. And I am going to try using croissant rolls also. Only because that is what I have in my fridge at this time. Let me know if anyone has tried either of these ieads please and thank you.

  31. Made these tonight and they were really good! I ended up using 2 cans of biscuits because I had a lot of left over meat. I melted the cheddar cheese with the meat mixture like someone suggested and it helped keep everything together so I omitted the egg. They were a big hit – thanks for the recipe!!

  32. Hi, I’m making these for a lunch hour snack for my teaching staff. I will have to make them the night before. How long and at what temperature should i reheat before lunch the next day?

    1. I would heat them about 10 minutes at 350 degrees. You’ll just want to check that they’re warmed and the cheese inside has melted.

  33. I made these the other night and they were ok. Kind of bland even though I spiced the beef with salt, pepper, chili powder, and red pepper flakes while it was cooking. If I do make this recipe again, I would cook and chop the bacon separately before adding to the beef (cooking it with the beef made it chewy, not crunchy), and saute the onions and mushrooms that I chopped up and added to the mix separately as well. Also maybe throw in some hot sauce to bring the flavor up.

    I have some of ther beef mixture left over that I am going to stuff into some bell peppers later this week.

    Overall, not super impressed, but there is room for improvement.

  34. These were outstanding! I added the cheese to the meat after the cooking process. I also made my own biscuits. Froze the leftovers. Thank you for a great recipe.

    1. So glad you enjoyed them! Thank you for the tip about the homemade biscuits, not everyone has access to the canned ones! Great tip!

  35. Please bomb me with few of these, lol. I’m drooling and my screen is wet (I might have licked my laptop). I saw those and forgot what I was doing…..Found you on Totally Talented Tuesdays and would like to invite you to visit us at Thursday Favorite Things Blog Hop. If you’d link up with us, that would be awesome! XO

  36. These sound amazing! Great party idea! Pinning this right now! Check out my new blog for some great recipes when you get a chance!

  37. These look amazing! I’ll definitely be pinning this because my husband would lose his mind over these. I’d like to share a text link back to this on Friday if you don’t mind (I post text links to things that are awesome each Friday).

    I stopped by from Wonderful Wednesday.

  38. Oh I was going to say that we don’t have Pillsbury biscuits here in Australia but then I saw in one of the other comments that you suggested the use of scone dough! I’m going to try making these with scone dough because they look awesome!

  39. Oh my, these look amazing. What a creative idea! I’m a new food blogger and found you on a link party. I’ve followed your social sites and hope we can connect on those. Can’t wait to read more of your blog. Becky

  40. We are making these for supper tonight and the kids couldn’t be more excited. They look amazing and I suspect they will be eaten quickly without complaint.

  41. These are amazing! However, I used a pound and a half of beef and Pillsbury Grand flaky biscuits. It only made 8, but it was a big 8. I also added more ketchup, mustard, and Worcester sauce than the recipe called for. A great base recipe though.

  42. These turned out so great! My son is a very picky eater and he wolfed down 6 of these. I’m going to try to make a bunch and freeze them!! Thank you!

  43. These look really good, do you think they would be just as good without the cream cheese? I really hate cream cheese :(

  44. Thanks so much for sharing this recipe. I am cooking it tomorrow for a gathering. For the bacon is it uncooked as in raw bacon and then added to the ground beef or is it pre-cooked? Thanks again!

      1. And similar to a Bierock here in Kansas. Our Bierock filling is basically ground beef, sauerkraut and onion with a homemade dough (but have used Texas Rhodes Rolls as well).

  45. Thanks for the recipe! I subbed out the bacon and cheddar for mushrooms and swiss and they were delish! Next time gonna make like little reuben bombs!!!

    1. That would definitely work as well! I found sometimes they were hard to get out of the tin but I have definitely done it that way too!

  46. Love the Bacon Cheeseburger Bombs. Can’t wait to try other Recipes. It was very good. Great idea for great tasting finger food.

    1. Kelly I was thinking the same thing. I may try yogurt, ground turkey meat, turkey bacon and low fat cheese for us because
      we are having to watch our cholesterol levels. This does sound good though.

  47. Congratulations!
    Your recipe is featured on Full Plate Thursday this week. Enjoy your new Red Plate and have a great weekend.

  48. I just love your Bacon and Cheeseburger Bombs, they would be great for a party! Thanks for helping us celebrate Three Years at Full Plate Thursday. Hope you have a great week and come back soon!

  49. Oh my, I should not be reading these posts after midnight #hungry Thank you for linking up with us at #WWDParty – I hope you have a wonderful weekend!

  50. This is such a great recipe idea. We are having some friends over for a football game on Sunday (go Seahawks!) and I think I might have to try these! Thank you for sharing and glad to have found your through the Weekend Wind Down.

  51. These look awesome! I saw them on Mouth Watering Mondays and just wanted to tell you how kick s$$ they looked! I will definitely add to my Super Bowl party menu!

  52. Mmm… I love anything bacon cheeseburger. I must try these! Thanks for sharing at Inspiration Monday Party!

  53. These look great, Holly! I like to make appetizers for church events and this would be the perfect thing to bring! Pinning it now and I’m now following you on Pinterest!

  54. Can you make these up and refrigerate until right before wanting to serve and bake them then? Or would they get greasy?

    1. These are great! I made mine in the toaster oven so you have to reduce the heat so the biscuit cooks completely. I cooked them at 250 for 20 minutes.
      Parchment paper works great.
      I can pack them for my lunch at work. I am going to play around with the seasonings a bit.

  55. My husband and I made these tonight and they were absolutely delicious! Couldn’t believe how much they taste like cheeseburgers.

  56. Hi! This looks delicious! But is there anything one can use instead of the canned biscuits? I live in Norway, and we don’t have that here…

    1. You could make your own version of biscuits by preparing rolled buttermilk biscuits or these are also known as scones in Australia. :)

  57. I made these and kept eating them until I was stuffed! Everyone who tried them couldn’t believe how good they were. I did end up with way too much filling for the amount of biscuits suggested, but I had 4 cans of biscuits, and was more than happy to keep popping these babies into the oven! I also left out the bacon, but might try it next time.

    1. I have not tried freezing them. I have reheated them from the fridge and they were fantastic. If you do try it, please let us know!

  58. I so love this idea. This is a wonderful twist to the same old cheeseburger sandwich. I definitely could have used this the other day. Thanks for giving me a new idea.

  59. I made these last night and was given two thumbs up by my family… a few alterations… I used 1.5 pounds of meat, more ketchup than barbecue sauce because I don’t like it… I used the big biscuits, because that was what my local store had (the recipe made up 14 bombs… had two biscuits left over) and I used shredded cheese … they were wonderful… my family likened them to hot pockets, but meatier and better crust!!

  60. These look amazing…and what great football snacks they would make! These are definitely going on the menu at some point this fall…thanks for sharing!

  61. I made these the other night, they are FANTASTIC!!! I recommend cutting the cheese into tiny cubes and mixing right into the meat mixture (I used pre cute sharp cheddar cubes and quartered them) It’ll give a bite of cheese in every bite, I also used 8oz of cheese :) Really easy to make and great to eat!!
