Loaded Bacon Cheeseburger Roll Ups

So we just got back from a wonderful 4 day getaway up North to see our relatives. 
So much fun and food.
But, as with all vacations, it came to an end too soon.
We had a 7 hour drive home and got in at dinner time. Who wants to have to make dinner after a 7 hour car ride? Not me. That's who.
I whipped up these super easy, super quick cheeseburger roll ups while Sue unpacked the car. All you need is a couple of cans of Pillsbury Pizza Crust (or you can make your own if you have more time).
These are great for snacks, lunch, dinner, or even game night goodies.

Loaded Bacon Cheeseburger Roll Ups

Hamburger & Bacon Filling
1 lb lean ground beef
6 slices bacon, diced
1/2 onion, diced
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/4 tsp onion powder
1/4 tsp garlic powder
sprinkle seasoning salt

2 rolls Pillsbury Pizza Crust

Other Filling
1 - 2 Tbsp prepared mustard
6 - 8 slices processed cheese
8 dill pickles, chopped

2 Tbsp milk
2 Tbsp toasted sesame seeds

Preheat oven to 375. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper, set aside.
Prepare hamburger filling - In a large frying pan, cook beef, bacon, onion, garlic, and spices until hamburger is no longer pink and bacon is a little bit crispy. Scrape mixture into a bowl and place in freezer for 10 minutes to cool down a little. 
Unroll Pillsbury Pizza Dough and press seams together into one big rectangle.
Spread mustard down the center of the rectangle.
Place the processed cheese slices down the center of the rectangle.
Top with the hamburger mixture.
Lastly, top with the chopped pickle.

Roll up, jelly roll style.

Using a pastry or basting brush, brush the top of the roll with the milk. Sprinkle generously with the sesame seeds. Slice into approx 1 inch slices. Place on prepared cookie sheet.

Bake at 375 until bun is golden brown, about 10 - 15 minutes (keep an eye on it).

Remove from oven and let sit on cookie sheet for 5 minutes before removing to wire rack. Serve warm.

These also freeze really well and can be heated in the microwave for a minute or so for a quick after school/after work snack. 

Don't forget to add the pickles and sesame seeds! They make these cheeseburger rolls extra tasty!

  1. OH wow! These sound and look amazing! I can imagine that you could do these as a breakfast type of roll with ground sausage, bacon, some potatoes and cheese! Great idea!

    1. Thank you Alicia.. Love the breakfast roll idea!

  2. Do you think regular cheese slices instead of processed ones would work too?

  3. Hey Jo and Sue,
    We just featured this post at this weeks link party. They look so good.
