Mini Cheeseburger Cups

Savory cheeseburger ingredients baked in Pillsbury™ pizza dough and topped with cheese, tomatoes, and pickles!

Ingredients

1
tablespoon neutral oil (such as canola)
1/2
white onion, diced
1
pound lean ground beef
Salt and pepper to taste
1
container Pillsbury™ refrigerated classic pizza crust
Butter or oil, for pan
4
ounces cheddar cheese, grated
2
Roma tomatoes, diced for topping
1
dill pickle, diced for topping
Ketchup, for garnish
Mustard, for garnish

Directions

  • 1 Preheat oven to 375ºF. Heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Once hot, add onions and cook until they are soft, 3-4 minutes.
  • 2 Add ground beef to skillet with onions. Break the beef up as it browns and cook it for 6-8 minutes until it’s nicely browned. Add salt and pepper to your liking. Remove from heat.
  • 3 Lightly butter or oil a muffin tin. Open Pillsbury™ pizza crust and roll out lightly. Cut dough sheet into 9 even pieces and press into the muffin tins to form crusts.
  • 4 Fill crusts with the beef mixture. You can stuff them full.
  • 5 Bake cups at 375ºF for 16-18 minutes until the cups are browned and cooked through. Remove from oven and sprinkle with cheese. Return to oven to melt cheese, 2-3 minutes.
  • 6 When cups are done and cheese is melted, pop the cups out of the muffin tins. Garnish each cheeseburger cup with diced tomatoes, pickles, ketchup and mustard (or serve condiments on the side). Serve while warm!

Step By Step  

For those times when you need a hearty snack or appetizer.

As prepared by Macheesmo,

Stuffed with burger and all the fixings, these little eats are a mouthful!

I love it when a recipe lands in the trifecta of recipes: it’s fun to make, it’s easy to make, and it’s delicious! Very few meet all three, so when you find one – bookmark it!

These little cheeseburger cupcakes are definitely fun, and thanks to store-bought pizza crust, they're really easy to toss together.

But the real surprise is how savory and delicious they are! Topped with some classic cheeseburger toppings, they have all the flavors of a full burger in a bite-sized appetizer.

 

Mini Cheeseburger Cups

While your oven is preheating for the crust cups, get the beef started. I cooked some diced onion in my skillet and once the onions were soft, I added about a pound of lean ground beef.

Cook this until the beef is nicely browned, and season it well with salt and pepper as it cooks. It’ll take around 8-10 minutes to get the beef browned nicely. Be sure to break it up as it cooks so it will fit in the cups later.

To make the cups, lightly grease or butter a muffin tin and then roll out your pizza dough. Cut the dough into 9 even pieces.

Press each small piece of dough into a muffin cup and work the dough up the sides to form an edge.

You can really pack these cups full of the beef and onion mixture. You should use all of it to fill the 9 cups.

Stick these bad boys in the oven for 16-18 minutes, until the pizza dough is browned on the edges and cooked in the center. You can lift a cup out of the pan to see if it’s cooked on the bottom and sides.

When the cups are cooked, add your cheese! If you add it too early it would just burn – adding it at the end ensures it’s melted and perfect.

Return them to the oven just to melt the cheese. Then serve these with classic cheeseburger toppings: tomatoes, pickles, mustard, and ketchup!
