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