👩🏽‍🍳⁠⠀

HOW YOU MAKE THEM:⁠⠀

🍔 Add a drizzle of oil to the skillet over medium heat. Add onion and cook until translucent/fragrant.⁠⠀

🍔 Meanwhile, mix beef with seasoning salt and garlic powder. Then add seasoned beef to pan, mixing it in with onion to combine, breaking up as you go.⁠⠀

🍔 Cook thoroughly, allowing beef to sit for a couple of minutes without moving it to crisp it up in some spots.⁠⠀

🍔 Once cooked, drain and return to pan.⁠⠀

🍔 Add in ketchup, Worcestershire sauce and water. Stir. Once cooked through/combined, remove from heat and set aside.⁠⠀

🍔 Now, preheat oven to 400 degrees.⁠⠀

🍔 Meanwhile, remove biscuits from can and separate.⁠⠀

🍔 On a lightly floured surface, flatten each biscuit with your hands until you have a good-sized, thinner circle.⁠⠀

🍔 In the center of circle, add a bit of meat mixture, and then cheese.⁠⠀

🍔 Lift dough up from outer edges, lifting over toppings, and pinch together at top (like a Chinese dumpling).⁠⠀

🍔 Flip the ball over, re-shaping as necessary. Repeat until you’ve used all dough.⁠⠀

🍔 Brush egg wash over tops and sides of balls and sprinkle with sesame seeds.⁠⠀

🍔 Arrange balls in a pie plate or other oven-safe dish. ⁠⠀

🍔 Cook 12 to 15 minutes or until golden.⁠⠀

🍔 Once done, remove from oven and serve immediately with ketchup and/or mustard for dipping. 

Feel free to offer garnishes like pickles, etc. on the side as well! ⁠⠀
