Burgers are great, but they’re even better when built inside of a biscuit. Don’t believe me? This recipe for Cheeseburger Cupcakes will blow your mind. It will also blow your belt because you’re going to eat a dozen of them.

This is unofficially “Muffin Tray Cooking Week” at the Guyism Grill. Yesterday brought the Cheesy Corn Dog Cupcakes, and I have another lying in wait for Friday. You just can’t beat the simplicity of something handheld. It’s also a great way to cook for the masses because you can prep things before hand and wait to put the in the oven until it’s official go time.

There’s nothing too fancy about Cheeseburger Cupcakes. It’s essentially making a tiny burger just like you normally would, only it sits inside of a biscuit instead of atop a bun. The meat really stands out because the biscuit is much less dense than a bun, so don’t shortchange your burger mix just because they’re small.

I stuck to Sriracha Sea Salt, pepper, onion powder, Sriracha sauce, and Worcestershire (not pictured), but go as wild as you like. Throw in some french onion dip, garlic powder, chopped onions, or whatever else demands consumption.

The process is fairly simple. While your burgers are cooking, cut each piece of biscuit dough in half. Roll them out into circles, and put one half in the bottom of the muffin tray. Fill it with stuff, then put the other half of the biscuit dough on top. And you’re off…

It takes a little work to get the two halves of the dough reconnected, but I’m pretty sure you can handle it. The result is these beautifully self-contain Cheeseburger Cupcakes. I added sesame seeds to the top before cooking it because it seemed like the right thing to do. If it’s good enough for Ronald, it’s good enough for me.

Again, use whatever you want in your burger mix and as toppings. The world is your cupcake here. I included my recipe, but I’d be disappointed if you followed it to the letter, especially because I mostly just made up the quantities.
