Cheeseburger Mini Pies

Happy National Cheeseburger Day! 

To celebrate I made these adorable and downright delicious Cheeseburger Mini Pies from Paula Deen's son, Jamie's recipe. This recipe is a fun take on a classic cheeseburger patty but baked in puff pastry dough instead of served on a traditional bun. It's just as tasty as the original -or maybe even better!


Ingredients:

Makes 5 burger pies
  • 1 pound lean ground beef
  • 1/2 cup sweet onions, preferably Vidalia onion
    1 tablespoon steak seasoning (recommended: Montreal)
  • 1 tablespoon steak seasoning sauce (recommended: Dale's Steak Seasoning Sauce)
  • 5 slices Cheddar cheese
  • 1 sheet frozen puff pastry dough, thawed for 20 minutes
  • 1 egg yolk

Directions:

  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.
  2. Mix the ground beef, onion, steak seasoning, and seasoning sauce together (using your hands is the most efficient way to do this).
  3.  Form into 5 small flat patties. 
  4. Cook the hamburgers to medium-well. 
  5. Top each burger with a slice of cheese and remove from heat.
  6. Roll the puff pastry sheet to flatten slightly. 
  7. Cut it into 5 rectangles.
  8. Cover each burger with a piece of puff pastry and wrap it around the bottom, pinching all of the edges to seal. 
  9. Place on an ungreased baking sheet, pinched side down.
  10. Whisk together the egg yolk and 1 teaspoon water to make an egg wash. 
  11. Brush each wrapped pastry with the egg wash. 
  12. Bake for about 15 minutes, until the puff pastry is nice and brown.
  13. Serve warm with a side of fries and baked beans.

Mix the ground beef, onion, steak seasoning, and seasoning sauce together. 
The easiest way is with your hands.
Some of my favorite seasonings {and the Deen family's too} are Dale's Seasoning Sauce and Montreal Steak seasoning blend. 
 Form into 5 small flat patties. 
For the burgers I like to use a grill pan but you can also use a skillet or outside grill. 
Cook the hamburgers to medium-well.
Top each burger with a slice of cheese.
Remove from heat.
Roll the slightly thawed puff pastry sheet to flatten slightly.
Cut it into 5 rectangles.
 
Cover each burger with a piece of puff pastry and wrap it around the bottom.
Pinch all of the edges to seal. 
Place on an ungreased baking sheet, pinched side down.
Whisk together the egg yolk and 1 teaspoon water to make an egg wash. 
Brush each wrapped pastry with the egg wash. 
 
Bake for about 15 minutes, until the puff pastry is nice and brown.
Serve warm with a side of fries and baked beans.
Hope you enjoy these Cheeseburger Mini Pies on National Cheeseburger Day
 {or any day for that matter}!
