Something new for supper

I tried a new recipe for supper one night this week that we really liked. The original recipe was from Taste of Home magazine. I made several changes in the original recipe, so I will post my version here.

Cheeseburger Buns

1 Tbsp. yeast
1/2 cup warm water (110-115 degrees)
3/4 cup warm milk (110-115 degrees)
1/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup shortening, margarine, or butter
1 egg
1 tsp. salt
3 1/2-4 cups bread flour
1 1/2 lbs. ground beef or venison
1/2 cup chopped onion
1 cup tomato sauce (I used canned spaghetti sauce)
pepper and garlic powder to taste
8 slices processed American cheese, quartered

I made the dough in the bread machine, so I just put all the ingredients in the machine on the dough cycle. If you use the bread machine you do not need to use warm liquids. Let rise in the bread machine according to the cycle.

If you do not have a bread machine combine the yeast with 2 cups of flour, the sugar, shortening, and salt. Add the egg and the warm liquids and beat until smooth. Stir in enough of the remaining flour to make a soft dough and then knead for about 5 mins. Let rise until doubled, about 30 mins.
While the dough is rising cook the ground beef and onion until the meat is thoroughly cooked. Drain the fat and then add the tomato sauce and seasonings. Set aside to cool. This step could be done further ahead if you desire.

After the dough has risen sufficiently punch it down and divide it into 16 pieces. Roll or stretch each piece into a 5" circle. Place two of the small pieces of cheese on each round of dough and then add 3-4 Tbsps. of the meat filling. You can use a 1/4 cup measuring cup for this step. Bring the edges of the dough to the center and pinch closed. Place seam side down on a baking sheet. Grease the sheets heavily or cover with foil or use a liner such as a silpat or parchment. Cover loosely and let rise about 20 min. Bake at 400 degrees for 12-15 mins. or until golden brown.

Here is a picture of the dough circle with the cheese squares:

I hope you will try these. We thought they were really delicious.

    Just wanted to let you know that I made these last week and my family loved them so much that I made a second batch for the freezer. We often have a hard time with lunch ideas for the girls since they typically eat chinese everyday at school and often in the evenings as well. These were perfect for them to take in their lunch boxes and just heat them up in a microwave. They asked me to make them some more! I also made the with ham slices which we have found here and cheese, they were excellent. Thanks for this great recipe. We have several dozen in our freezer already!!
