Meat Rolls

My mom used to make these out of bisquick dough sprinkled with cooked hamburger.  I loved them as a kid but didn't have much luck as an adult having them turn out.  So I switched to making them like a cinnamon roll and had much better results.  You can serve them with gravy but I still revert to childhood with these and break out the ketchup bottle every time.

Meat Rolls

1 egg
1/3 c sugar
2 c warm water
1/3 c shortening
3 3/4 tsp yeast
4 1/2 - 5 c flour
2 1/2 tsp salt
1/2 c dry powdered milk
1 lb ground hamburger
1 onion, chopped
8 oz of mushrooms, fresh or canned
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper
2 Tbsp worcerstershire sauce
3 oz blue cheese, crumbled (opt)
Ketchup or gravy for serving

  1. Mix together egg, water, yeast, salt, sugar and shortening.  Let stand for 10 minutes.  Add 4 1/2 c flour and powdered milk.  Knead until smooth, about 10 minutes.  Let rise until double.
  2. Brown hamburger in a pan.  Add onion and mushrooms.  Cook until onions are soft.  Add salt, pepper and worcestershire sauce. 
  3. Roll out dough, into a rectangle 12 inches tall and 24 inches wide.  Sprinkle on meat mixture.  If desired top with cheese.  Roll up dough just like a cinnamon roll.  Cut roll into 1 inch slices and lay on a cookie sheet.  Cover and let rise until double, about an hour.
  4. Bake at 350 degrees for 15 min till lightly browned.
