What's Special

Melted cheddar cheese, wrapped in a burger flavored meatball, swaddled in a crispy flaky biscuit!

Jump to Recipe

Cheeseburger Biscuit Bombs (named by the hubby 😉) are called bombs for both their explosion of flavor and their surprise gooey cheesy centers. When I was formulating this recipe, I knew I was on to something sensational, but these little bites of heaven are even tastier than I imagined. The “cheeseburger” gets its punch of flavor by adding Italian breadcrumbs, mustard and ketchup, Worcestershire sauce, and the perfect blend of seasonings. I then added enough cheese to offer a hearty cheddar taste in each bite. I think we’ve all been victims of cheese-stuffed appetizers where the cheese was either invisible or hardly noticeable. And finally, I wrap each burger in a crispy flaky biscuit crust! Perfect for parties and lunches!

Creative Recipe Variations

The beauty of this appetizer is that there are so many options in which to get creative. I prefer beef burgers, however; ground chicken or turkey will both work well. For the cheese, I chose a mild cheddar because it has a smooth neutral flavor. If you want a little heat, feel free to use Pepper Jack cheese. Or, if you like a milder cheese, try Colby or Monterey Jack. Be careful that the cheese you choose is not a soft cheese or it will become too thin as it melts.

Help! The cheese is trying to escape the meatball! 😮

You have the perfect shaped meatball with a hunk of delectable cheese tucked neatly inside. The problem is, once that meatball begins to bake, that cheese is going to melt and try to find a way out! Here is the cold hard truth…there will always be a little bit of cheese that seeps out during the baking process. It’s okay! You can try to use smaller amounts of cheese, however; this just means that while the cheese may stay in place, there isn’t enough to properly flavor your appetizer. I use ample amounts of cheese so that the end result is a meatball center swimming in that delicious melty gooey stuff.

Cheeseburger Biscuit Bombs

So what do you do with exploding cheese? It’s very simple. When your Cheeseburger Biscuit Bombs come out of the oven, take a silicone spatula and “cut” the excess cheese away from where it has seeped out onto the baking sheet. A little bit of cheese around the meatball is okay. This will be hidden by the biscuit covering. NOTE: I highly recommend silicone utensils in the kitchen because food does not stick to them, which makes them a breeze to clean. This is great for those sticky gooey ingredients.

How to make Cheeseburger Biscuit Bombs

Equipment Used

Ingredient List

Recipe Preparation

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees and spray a large baking sheet with non-stick cooking spray. Set aside until ready to use.

  • In a medium bowl, add the ground beef, egg, breadcrumbs, mustard, ketchup, garlic powder, onion powder, and Worcestershire sauce. Mix all ingredients until well blended.
  • Place the block of cheese on a cutting board. This recipe makes 16 Cheeseburger Biscuit Bombs. Cut the block into 16 even slices, then cut the slices in half. You will have a total of 32 pieces of cheese. Putting two of these pieces together will give you the perfect size for the meatballs. You can use prepared cheese cubes for ease, however; most are too small to give you a thick cheesy center.
  • Separate the meat mixture into 16 pieces. I find it easier to first half the meat, then half the halves, and so on to make sure all rounds of meat are even in size.
  • Take a ball of meat and flatten it either in your hand or on a clean counter. Place two pieces of cheese in the center of the flattened meat. Bring the meat up and over the cheese to surround the cheese completely. Roll the stuffed meatball in your hand to firm the meat around the cheese, closing any gaps where cheese is showing. Repeat this process with all pieces of meat and cheese.
  • Place stuffed meatballs on prepared baking sheet and bake for 15 to 20 minutes, or until meat is cooked through. Remove meat from oven and scrape away any cheese that has seeped onto the baking sheet. Allow meat to cool before wrapping in biscuit dough. (This will also cool the cheese, which will ensure any exposed cheese remains intact while wrapping).
  • Reduce oven temperature and preheat oven for the biscuits. If using a dark colored baking sheet, set temperature to 375 degrees. If using a light colored nonstick baking sheet, set temperature to 350 degrees.
  • Remove biscuits from the can and cut each round in half. There are 8 biscuits, which will produce 16 halves. Take a biscuit half and bring ends together to form a circle. Flatten the circle until it’s wide enough to wrap around a meatball.
  • Place a cooled stuffed meatball in the center of the circle of dough. Bring sides of dough up and around the meatball and pinch lightly at the top to seal. Next, smooth out the pinched dough and smooth out the wrapped meatball, closing any gaps that may be present. Repeat this process with the rest of the meatballs.
  • Place Cheeseburger Biscuit Bombs on a baking sheet that has been sprayed with non-stick cooking spray.
  • In a small bowl prepare the egg wash. Mix the egg white, water, garlic powder, and parsley until well blended.
  • Brush each Cheeseburger Biscuit Bomb with the egg white wash. Bake biscuits for 18 to 20 minutes, or until tops of biscuits are golden brown. Be careful to not burn the bottom of the biscuits.

NOTES: These amazing little treats are scrumptious right out of the oven (watch out for that hot gooey cheese!), or reheated in the microwave.

You can prepare the stuffed meatballs (cheese inside meat only) up to 2 days in advance and do the baking of the meatballs and biscuits the day of your event.
