WOW! {Warm Oven Wednesday} Bacon Cheeseburger Buns from Taste of Home

I love Taste of Home  recipes!  
And here's a great one for the great fall nights we're outside by the fire!

Ingredients

  • 2 packages (1/4 ounce each) active dry yeast
  • 2/3 cup warm water (110° to 115°)
  • 2/3 cup warm milk (110° to 115°)
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup shortening
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 4-1/2 to 5 cups all-purpose flour
  • FILLING:
  • 1 pound sliced bacon, diced
  • 2 pounds ground beef
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 pound process cheese (Velveeta), cubed
  • 3 to 4 tablespoons butter, melted
  • Ketchup or barbecue sauce, optional

Directions

  • In a large bowl, dissolve yeast in warm water. Add the milk, sugar, shortening, eggs, salt and 3-1/2 cups flour; beat until smooth. Stir in enough remaining flour to form a soft dough.
  • Turn onto a floured surface; knead until smooth and elastic, about 6-8 minutes. Place in a greased bowl, turning once to grease top. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 1 hour.
  • Meanwhile, in a large skillet, cook bacon over medium heat until crisp. Using a slotted spoon, remove to paper towels. In a Dutch oven, cook the beef, onion, salt and pepper over medium heat until meat is no longer pink; drain. Add bacon and cheese; cook and stir until cheese is melted. Remove from the heat.
  • Punch dough down. Turn onto a lightly floured surface; divide into fourths. Roll each portion into an 12-in. x 8-in. rectangle; cut each into six squares. Place 1/4 cup meat mixture in the center of each square. Bring corners together in the center and pinch to seal.
  • Place 2 in. apart on greased baking sheets. Bake at 400° for 9-11 minutes or until lightly browned. Brush with butter. Serve warm with ketchup if desired. Yield: 2 dozen.
