Ingredients

  • 2

    packages (1/4 ounce each) Red Star® Platinum Superior Baking 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

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.
