Ingredients

  • sheet frozen puff pastry dough
  • 1  Pound  lean ground beef
  • 1/2  sweet onion, preferably Vidalia, chopped
  • 1  Tablespoon  steak seasoning, preferably Montreal
  • 1  Tablespoon  steak seasoning sauce
  • slices cheese, preferably American, Swiss, or sharp Cheddar
  • egg yolk
  • 1  Tablespoon  water

Directions

Let the puff pastry dough sit out at room temperature for 20 minutes.

Meanwhile, preheat the oven to 375 degrees.

In a bowl, mix the ground beef, onion, steak seasoning, and seasoning sauce together. Form into 5 small, flat patties. Place the patties in a slow cooker for 1 hour on high. Remove and top each burger with a slice of cheese.

Roll the puff pastry sheet to flatten slightly. Cut it into 5 relatively even rectangles. Cover each burger with a piece of puff pastry and wrap it around the bottom, pinching all of the edges to seal. Place on a baking sheet, pinched side down.

Whisk together the egg yolk and water to make an egg wash. Brush each wrapped pastry with the egg wash. Bake for about 15 minutes, until the puff pastry is nice and brown.

Cheeseburger Shopping Tip

Most cattle are fed a diet of grass until they are sent to a feedlot – where they are finished on corn. When possible, choose beef from cattle that are “100% grass fed” - it will be more expensive, but better for your health.

Cheeseburger Cooking Tip

Cook your burger over high heat to form a crust that will seal in the meat's juices and flavor.
