Tavern Burger Bites

30 Oct

Ground beef, ham, bacon, fried onions, fried eggs, and cheese all cooked and mixed together, stuffed inside a crescent roll crust.

-By Carrie (Strommen) Lennie


1.75 lbs ground beef
garlic powder, salt, and pepper to taste
1/2 lb bacon
4.5 oz smoked ham
1 medium onion
4 eggs
1/2 lb extra sharp cheddar cheese, shredded
4 cans crescent rolls


  1. Brown ground beef and season with garlic powder, salt, and pepper to taste. Drain grease, and add meat to a large mixing bowl.
  2. Cook bacon until crisp. Drain on paper towels. Then chop into bacon bits using a food processor. Add bacon into the ground beef.
  3. Chop ham in a food processor; add ham to the meat mixture.
  4. Chop onion and fry in bacon grease until tender. Let drain on paper towels. Chop in food processor. Add to meat mixture.
  5. Fry the eggs until hard. Chop in food processor. Add to meat mixture.
  6. Mix in cheddar cheese.
  7. Unroll crescent roll dough. Separate into four rectangles, pressing the dough together where the triangle edges are. Cut each rectangle into 4 smaller rectangles (creating 16 rectangles total for each can of crescent rolls).
  8. Place a spoonful of the meat mixture (as much as you can squeeze in) into the center of each rectangle of dough. Press the meat firmly into a ball so it holds together.  Fold up all the edges so they meet on top and press the dough together to seal.
  9. Place each burger bite on a greased baking sheet. Bake in a preheated oven at 375 degrees for 13 to 15 minutes or until crust is golden brown.
