How to Make Bacon Cheeseburger Biscuit Bites

Not only are these Bacon Cheeseburger Biscuit Bites delicious, but they are also super easy to make. Make the meatballs, stuff into the biscuit cups, and bake.  If you like to make recipes ahead of time, you can mix up the cheeseburger meatballs and finish assembling them when you are ready to bake.

To make these biscuit bites, start by making the bacon cheeseburger meatballs. Combine ground beef, an egg, tomato juice, cooked bacon, and cheddar cheese. Form the ground beef mixture into 40 meatballs. Next, separate each biscuit into two rounds and place them into a MINI muffin pan. Place the meatballs into the biscuit cups and bake.

Please note that the ground beef is not cooked. You use the ground beef raw and it bakes along with the biscuits. I promise it will be fully cooked after it has baked.

You can bake these biscuit bites and reheat before serving. To reheat either cook in the microwave until warm or wrap in foil and bake in the oven until reheated.

Tips For Making Bacon Cheeseburger Biscuit Bites

  • Use a silicone mini muffin pan. It is SO much easier to get the biscuit bites out of silicone pans than traditional metal pans.
  • Use a wooden tart tamper to shape the biscuit shells.
  • Dip the tart shaper into flour before pressing into each biscuit.
  • Use a kitchen scale to evenly divide the bacon cheeseburger mixture.
  • You can use precooked bacon for easy preparation.
  • Make sure to use cans of the smaller refrigerated biscuits. You will need four cans of 6-oz biscuits. You can also use two cans of 7.5-oz refrigerated biscuits if you can find them.

Bacon Cheeseburger Biscuit Bites with Pub Sauce are PERFECT for Tailgating

We dipped these biscuit bites in a quick homemade Pub Sauce. The sauce is made with mayonnaise, brown sugar, soy sauce, Worcestershire sauce, chives, garlic, and black pepper. I like to make the sauce at least a day in advance so the flavors have time to meld together.

I cannot wait to make these biscuit bites again. They are seriously the best! As I said, these are great for tailgating. If you aren’t into tailgating, they are also great for parties, lunch, and dinner. We’ve eaten them in the parking lot for tailgating parties and for a quick lunch/dinner. They are delicious any time of the day! Here are a few recipes from the blog that will complete your meal or tailgate spread:
