  • To the beef add steak seasoning, salt and worcestershire sauce. Mix well, cook for 1 minute. Taste and adjust seasoning amounts to taste. Remove from heat and cool completely. (This can be done in advance for a timesaver.)
  • To assemble: Preheat oven to 375°F. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper. Set aside.
  • To the cooked ground beef add, cheddar cheese, cream cheese, pickles, ketchup and mustard, Mix until fully combined.
  • Flatten each dough round into roughly a 2 ½ -3 inch circle. Place 1 Tbsp filling in the center. Tightly pinch dough up around filling to seal. Place seam side down on a baking sheet 2 inches apart.

Please note: It's imperative that you use a quality and flavorful seasoning for the beef. A bland end product is the direct result of the kind of seasoning you choose to use. You can always taste, and adjust the amount to your personal preference.
