It’s Football Friday! This is a HUGE weekend in college football.  I am packed and ready to head down to the game bright and early tomorrow morning! 

Burgers are great tailgating food, but sometimes it isn’t convienent to grill burgers.    Maybe you don’t have a grill to tote to the parking lot, or you just don’t want to deal with the hassle of it all.  We’ve grilled burgers twice this year, and it is a lot of work.  This recipe will satisfy your burger craving without the grill.  Simply mix up the hamburger meat, roll it up in some refrigerated pizza dough and bake.  Couldn’t be simpler or tastier!!

  1. I wondered the same thing, do you cook the meat first? It seems so strange to me not to… but I will try it! Actually I have some hamburger meat already cooked and crumbled and I am going to try it with that and croissant rolls since that is what I have on hand. What a fun recipe! Thanks so much!!!

  2. Alexis asked, "Are those cinnamon rolls?"

    Nope, cheeseburger rolls! I bet they are a huge hit at tailgates.

    I bet you are rooting for the lowly Volunteers this weekend 🙂

  3. @The Dornons – you don't cook the meat first. You put in on the dough raw. It cooks with the dough. It works – I promise!

  4. I make a similar recipe from Kraft. It's called cheeseburger roll up. Your recipe looks equally good. I bet the addition of those crispy onions really put it over the top!

    Happy Friday!
