Bacon Cheeseburger Puffs
(Printable Recipe)


  • 1/2 pound ground beef
  • 1 1/2 cups biscuit/baking mix
  • 2 cups shredded Cheddar cheese
  • 3 oz bacon pieces
  • 6-7 Tbps buttermilk


Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

In a skillet, cook and crumble ground beef until no longer pink; drain. In a bowl, combine biscuit mix, bacon and cheese; stir in cooked beef. Add buttermilk and toss with a fork until just moistened. Shape into 1-1/2-in. balls. (I used a medium cookie scoop)  Place 2 inches apart on ungreased baking sheets.

Bake for 12-15 minutes or until puffed and golden brown. Cool on wire racks.

Baked puffs may be frozen; reheat at 400 degrees F for 7-9 minutes or until heated through (they do not need to thawed first).

    1. Tabitha - yes - the bacon should be cooked. I use a bag of Oscar Meyer bacon bits.

  14. Just made these for tailgating at a spring college football game. I of course had to taste test one before I take them...they aren't good.....they are SUPER GOOD!!!

    I did double the batch and towards the end had to add just a little bit more buttermilk because the mixture wasn't holding together.

  15. I think I'm going to add an onion to the ground beef when I brown it, since my whole family is addicted to onion. I'll let you know how it comes out.

  16. Could I use skim milk in place of buttermilk? I hate buying dairy products just to use a little bit.

    ReplyDelete
  17. eepy - to make buttermilk at home - 1 cup milk plus 1 Tbsp white vinegar or lemon juice.

  18. Okay, thanks! I'm gonna try these tonight.

  22. Hey, I just came across your AMAZING blog!
    I'm a UK resident and really want to make these.
    However, I've no idea what you mean by "bacon bits" and "biscuit/baking mix".
    Please help! :D xx

  23. For bacon bits - fry up 4 or 5 slices of bacon and chop it up.

    For the baking mix - The name brand here is Bisquick. You can make it from scratch - mix together

    2 cups flour
    ¼ cup shortening
    1 tsp salt
    2 Tbsp baking powder

  24. I'm sorry to sound ever so stupid but what is shortening? haha I've never heard of it.

    1. The brand name here is crisco. It is a white solid vegetable shortening. Similar to lard

  28. Just curious, do you have to use buttermilk or will regular/skim milk work as well? Thank you!

    ReplyDelete
  29. Ashleigh - you can use milk. I like to use buttermilk because I think it adds a nice flavor. You might not need as much milk as buttermilk. Add the milk slowly.
