Deep Fried Burger Bites

Mini bites of fried dough stuffed with a tasty burger and caramelized onions.

Ingredients

3/4
pound ground beef
2
large onions
2
tablespoons butter
4
ounces cheddar
1
package Pillsbury™ refrigerated country Italian loaf
Oil for frying

Directions

  • 1 Dice the onions and put into a heavy bottom pot with the butter on medium heat. Stir often and cook about 40 minutes until deeply browned.
  • 2 Meanwhile, chop the cheese into 10 cubes and split the beef into 10 equal parts.
  • 3 Begin to heat your oil to 350°F.
  • 4 Grab one piece of the beef and flatten it with your palm. Place a chunk of cheese onto the center of the beef, along with about a half teaspoon of the onions. Wrap the beef around the fillings and seal it.
  • 5 Broil the meatballs for about 7 minutes, flip, and broil another 5 minutes.
  • 6 Pat the meatballs dry and allow to slightly cool.
  • 7 Get the bread dough out of the fridge and open the container. Slice the dough into 10 equal parts.
  • 8 Flatten the segment of dough in your hand and wrap it around the meatball, being careful not to break the dough. Try to keep the dough even on all sides of the meatball. Repeat with remaining meatballs.
  • 9 Fry at 350°F for about 5 minutes, rotating to brown evenly.

Step By Step  

Deep Fried Cheeseburger Bites

As prepared by The Food in my Beard,

This is truly Fair food at its best.


If anyone wants to open a stand at their local Fair and sell these things, be my guest. You will probably make millions!

Just promise me – if I show up at your stand I get a couple free ones, okay?

Other than their fried awesomeness and poppable nature, what makes them great is the caramelized onions. Deeply browned onion is actually the key to making any burger amazing. Adding them to these Fried Burger Bites makes them scream burger – instead of just being another version of meat inside bread.

So the next time you're craving Fair food, try these Deep Fried Burger Bites and you won't be disappointed!

 

Caramelize onions

Step one is to caramelize the onions. This step takes awhile, but is oh-so worth it!

 

Stuffing burger balls

Stuff the burger balls with cheese and some of those onions. Mmm...

 

Burger bites, ready for the oven

Getting ready to stuff – but not so fast! These need to go into the oven first to cook.

 

Wrapping the cooked meatballs

Split up the dough and wrap up the cooked meatballs.

 

Frying the wrapped burger balls

Then just fry them up!

 

Deep Fried Cheeseburger Bites, ready to eat

This is exactly what you want to be eating in late summer and early fall. Grab an Oktoberfest beer and dig in!
