I love cookbooks. I think it is so fun to look at recipes and to brainstorm new ideas for the blog and what better way to do that than flipping the pages of a cookbook.

There's something about an actual book as opposed to surfing the web that I will never tire of. That's why I keep adding to my cookbook collection with no plans to stop!

Most of my cookbooks have been given to me, which means I've come across quite a few older books. The inspiration for these Cheeseburger Roll-Ups is from one of my hand-me-down books. I actually have no idea where this particular book came from, but it had some great vintage recipes!

I adapted this recipe just a bit to suit my tastes and was super happy when it turned out to be a winner!

The basics of this one are simple. Ground beef, cheese, and some bread. Good old burger flavors.

The ingredients sound a bit boring, I know, but when they are put together in such a fun way (little roll-ups!), and brushed will yummy melted butter before baking, they turn out unexpectedly light, crisp, and delicious!

I recommend serving these with some kind of dip. I serve them with mustard (I went with dijon, but a spicy mustard would be amazing) and ketchup.

Totally basic, but totally perfect for this fun finger food.  We enjoy these for dinner, but they could easily be made as an appetizer for game day or party!

Cheeseburger Roll-Ups put a fun spin on burger night. They will make the whole family happy with their crisp, buttery outside and delicious cheeseburger filling!

prep time: cook time: total time: 35 MIN MIN

INGREDIENTS


1/2 pound ground beef
1/2 cup plain greek yogurt or sour cream
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1/8 teaspoon garlic powder
1/8 teaspoon paprika
1/2 cup sharp cheddar cheese, shredded
10 slices white bread
10 slices white american cheese
3 tablespoons butter, melted

INSTRUCTIONS


1. Preheat your oven to 400 degrees.

2. Brown the ground beef in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Drain off the grease.

3. Stir in the greek yogurt, salt, pepper, garlic powder, and paprika until well mixed. Stir in the cheddar cheese and remove from the heat.

4. Using a rolling pin, roll each slice of bread until it is flat. Place one slice of american cheese on the bread. Spoon the meat onto the bread slices and roll up into log shape.

(*At this point, you can roll each one in foil and freeze to cook at a later time!)

5. Arrange the roll-ups on a foil-lined baking sheet and brush with the melted butter. Bake for 20 minutes or until golden brown.

NOTES


These are great served with spicy mustard or ketchup for dipping.

If baking from frozen, when ready to bake, remove from the freezer and let rest on the counter for 10 minutes. Unwrap the foil and bake following the instructions in step 5.
