Bacon Cheeseburger Golf Balls

Presented by The Sweet Spot


  • 2 lbs. ground beef
  • 1 cup diced uncooked bacon
  • 1/2 medium onion, diced

Cheese sauce:

  • 1 pint half and half
  • 1/2 lb. American cheese, chopped or grated

Biscuit dough:

  • 2 cups flour
  • 1 tsp. sugar
  • 1 T baking powder
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 8 T butter (1 stick), cold
  • 3/4 cup milk

To finish:

  • 3 eggs, whipped (egg wash)
  • White sesame seeds

Cook beef, bacon, and onion in a large saute pan until browned. Stir in cheese sauce, transfer to bowl and cool in refrigerator. When cooled, roll beef mixture into golf ball shapes (about 1 1/2-inch diameter) and freeze. When frozen, wrap each ball in a small amount of dough. Roll balls in egg wash, sprinkle with sesame seeds, and bake in an oven preheated to 350°F for 18 minutes. These flavorful bites are great for a party!

For the cheese sauce: In a small saucepan, warm half and half to a low simmer. Add cheese gradually until fully melted into a smooth sauce. Cool to room temperature.

For the biscuit dough: Combine flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt in a large bowl. Cut butter into small cubes, add to bowl and use a pastry fork or cutter to blend until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Gradually stir in milk until fully incorporated, being careful not to overmix.
