Cheeseburger Rollups

Adapted from the Jan/Feb. issue of Simple and Delicious, these cheeseburger rollups are lightened up from the inspiration recipe (which include bacon).  They’re a kid and man friendly recipe.  The method could undoubtedly be used with all sorts of fillings.  It reminded me of a Hot Pocket (but way better).  This makes 8 rollups at 290 calories and 10.5 grams of fat each.  I figure 2 is a serving and should be paired with oven fries and a veggie to round things out.


  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 1/2 cup chopped onion
  • 1/2 cup mushrooms, diced (my addition)
  • 8 oz. 2% Velveeta cheese, cubed (rather than full fat)
  • 1 tube Reduced Fat Grands biscuits (rather than full fat)
  • 1/4 tsp paprika
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder


  1. Brown the beef over medium heat.
  2. Leaving a little of the drippings in the skillet, drain and rinse the beef.
  3. In the remaining beef drippings, saute the onions and mushrooms.
  4. Add the paprika and garlic powder.
  5. Add the rinsed beef back to the skillet.
  6. Add the cheese and stir until melted.
  7. Remove filling from heat.
  8. Roll out each biscuit into a 5 inch round.
  9. Spoon about a third a cup of the filling onto each biscuit.
  10. Fold the sides and ends over the filling and roll up.
  11. Place each rollup seam side down on a baking sheet sprayed with cooking spray.
  12. Bake at 400 degrees for 18-20 minutes or until golden brown.
