Western Burger

Western Burgers: healthier, cheaper, tastier and almost even easier than running to get a Big Mac (at least once they’re in the freezer!)…

All you need is:

  • Dough (Any dough works, but I included the recipe my sis-in-law gave me ’cause it’s so yummy.)
  • Browned hamburger and onions (seasoned with whatever spices you wish)
  • Cheese


2 1/2 cups warm water
1/2 cup sugar (or other sweetener)
2 1/2 tsp salt
1/2 cup oil
3 cups flour
Combine, add and mix well:
2 T yeast
1 cup flour
Continue adding more flour (about 5-6 cups) until dough is soft and cleans the side of the bowl.

Western burger stepsOR make your favorite dough.

Let it rise ‘til doubled. Punch down and roll into fairly thin 8-10 inch squares.

Cut into four smaller squares. Scoop a spoonful of hamburger and cheese onto each square.

Fold over the edges. Place the edge side down on a lightly greased cookie sheet.


I generally make several meals worth and then shape the rest of the dough into mini-pizzas to pull out of the freezer for another quick meal.

Let rise ‘til slightly puffy, then place in a 350* oven and bake for 20 minutes, or until golden. Remove to a cooling rack and brush with butter.

They are delicious dipped in barbecue sauce, ketchup or miracle whip and freeze beautifully. When Joshua is at school during dinner time, we often eat them alone for a super simple meal but they go great with homemade fries, macaroni & cheese or salad.

    OMG its so good to know that people still make these. I remember back in East Texas in the 80’s our middle school cafeteria use to make these and they would be soooooooooooooo good! I’m going to have to make them now that there is a recipe. I saw a commercial of the new Hotpocket “sideshots” and it immediately reminded me of those delicious Western burgers.
