Pillsbury Grands! Flaky Layers refrigerated original or buttermilk biscuits
1 lb lean (at least 80%) Ground Beef, cooked, or 16 frozen (thawed) cooked meatballs
1 block (8oz) Cheddar Cheese, cut into 16 cubes
16 slices of Bacon
Canola Oil for Frying (optional – you can also bake them)
Separate dough into 8 biscuits. Cut each biscuit in half; press with hands into circle about 3 inches in diameter.
In center of each biscuit round, place 2 tablespoons cooked ground beef (or 1 meatball) and 1 cube of cheese. Wrap dough to completely enclose beef and cheese; pinch seams to seal.
Fried Version: Wrap each stuffed “bomb” with 1 bacon slice; gently secure loose bacon with toothpick by inserting it through bacon and halfway into “bomb.” In 3-quart heavy saucepan or deep fryer, heat oil to 350°F. Fry stuffed “bombs” 4 to 5 minutes or until dough is golden brown on all sides. Place on paper towels to cool. Repeat with remaining “bombs”. Serve warm with ketchup and mustard, if desired.
Baked Version: Heat oven to 400°F. Place bacon on foil-lined cookie sheet with sides. Bake about 8 minutes to partially cook bacon. Wrap each stuffed “bomb” with 1 slice partially cooked bacon slice. Place bacon wrapped dough 2-inches apart on two foil-lined cookie sheets with dough seam side down. Bake 13 to 15 minutes or until golden brown. Serve warm with ketchup and mustard, if desired.
