Puff pastry pockets with cheeseburger

We love these cheeseburger puff pastry pockets. It looks like a burger, but stuffed with buttery puff pastry and served with my famous house sauce. Add anything else you love in a burger and this is perfect!

I have your weekend plans here!!

A buttery, flaky puff pastry cheeseburger – emphasis on the cheese! – drizzled with my homemade creamy sauce which is the perfect snack. You will dream about this meal!

Okay, these are one of our family’s new favorite snacks. Or meals. Whenever you decide to eat this, it’s AMAZING.

I feel like I can’t even do them justice because they’re so hard to photograph. The deliciousness just doesn’t appear. They are tender, juicy, flaky and super wonderful. Go to my Instagram if you want to see some photos of me in action doing them.

You may remember a long time ago (a decade ago, my goodness!) when I made a skillet pizza with a cheeseburger. Making that pizza made me obsessed with all types of cheeseburgers. And it’s not like I love regular cheeseburgers. There’s something about the flavor and texture of the cheeseburger in other things that impresses me.

I did cheeseburger tostadas, crispy cheeseburger tacos, cheeseburger sliders, cheeseburger salad, cheeseburger crunchwraps and even cheeseburger meatballs.

More, a smoke shack copycat burger, but also in the form of a pizza!

I know, it’s a bit exaggerated. Unfortunately, I’m still putting this mixture into puff pastry and making it. You should too!

The cheeseburger mix is ​​key here. There’s a drizzle of ketchup and mustard right in the pan. I can’t emphasize enough how critical this is to the perfect cheeseburger flavor! It doesn’t taste like ketchup or mustard. It tastes like a real great burger – like the best cheeseburger you’ll get anywhere.

And then, of course, we sprinkle it with cheese.

I like to use sharp white cheddar, but of course any cheese will work. Just make sure it’s something you like to eat in a burger. You can do all combo spells here. A mushroom Swiss burger, a bacon jalapeño burger – really, the options are endless.

It can be an appetizer, a weekend snack and even a dinner recipe. It’s really up to you, how many people you’re serving and how you want to leverage it.

To make a meal, I usually serve it with lettuce and tomatoes and pickles, almost like a salad. You could add fries if you wanted, but the puff pastry makes it feel very rich and “bready” – more so than regular bread. That’s why I like to make a form of salad or even roast broccoli as a side dish, because we also love roasted vegetables with my house sauce.

Which brings me to the house sauce. I share this recipe all the time because it is so delicious. It’s like a homemade version of chick-fil-a sauce and so easy, delicious and versatile. You can eat it with just about anything! I make a batch and keep it in the fridge for veggies, chicken, sandwiches and more.

The house sauce works overtime here. I sprinkle the ground meat a little before sealing the puff pastry. Then I use it for diving too. It’s the best burger sauce and makes any burger feel special and sophisticated.

You can also serve the pasta with ketchup, mustard – any condiment you like and anything you like on a burger! It’s heaven and if I could eat my burger like this every time… I probably would.

  • As a side note, I like to use puff pastry here that is not perforated. I never use the Pepperidge Farm brand. I almost always use the wewalka brand or jus-rol puff pastry.

  • Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F. Place each of the puff pastry sheets on a piece of parchment paper on baking sheets. You can only do one sheet at a time, but I like to have the other one ready too.

  • Cut the two sheets of puff pastry into six squares on the parchment paper. .

  • Heat a frying pan over medium heat. Add the ground beef with a large pinch of salt and pepper. Cook until golden, breaking it into small crumbs. Add the ketchup and mustard until combined. Turn off the heat and add a pinch of cheese – just 30 or 60 grams. Let the meat cool slightly.

  • If you haven’t made the house sauce yet, do it now!

  • Once the meat has cooled slightly, spoon 2 to 3 tablespoons onto the puff pastry square. Drizzle with some house sauce. Sprinkle with some cheese. Brush the edges of the square with the egg mixture, then join one corner to the other, forming a triangular pocket. Press the edges with a fork to seal them. Repeat with remaining puff pastry.

  • Brush the tops of the pockets with the egg wash. Sprinkle everything with sesame seeds.

  • Bake the puff pastry pockets for 20 minutes or until golden, puffed and shiny. Remove from the oven and let cool slightly – the inside is super hot! Serve with condiments, lettuce, tomato, pickles and whatever else you like with a burger.
