Living Gluten Free with Celiac Disease

Easy recipes the whole family will enjoy!


Bacon Cheeseburger Puffs


I found this awesome recipe on Pinterest and had to deviate from my planned menu.   I’m sure you are all so surprised!  There was very little adjusting to make the recipe Gluten Free.  This isn’t exactly a healthy dinner, but the kids loved them so in the end I won.  They would be great as an appetizer or to take to a pot luck meal.  They remind me of the traditional sausage balls but have a fun twist with the bacon!

Print Recipe

What You Need:
1/2 lb ground beef
1 tbsp chopped onion

3 pieces of cooked bacon chopped up
1 1/2 cups of GF Bisquik 
2 cups shredded sharp cheddar cheese
1/3 cup of milk – may need a splash or two more

How to Make It:
Heat oven to 400 degrees.  Brown beef and cook onions.  Drain fat.  Mix together all the ingredients except the milk.  Slowly add in milk until you get a mixture that will stay together but you still want it kind of dry.  You aren’t looking for pancake batter consistency. 

Scoop into small balls and bake for 12-14 minutes.  Makes 20.

We loved them and will make them again!  If you wanted to be healthy I’m sure you could add veggies or something like that.  However they are awesome as is.  I even dipped a couple in ranch because it is my go to dip.

If you make these and add anything fun let me know!

  1. Hi Pam! I just stumbled upon your blog and found tons of great recipes. When you make these for a potluck, do you bake them first or wait until you get there. Don’t want them to be cold before we get there;-)

    • I would cook them ahead of time and put a hot, wet towel on top of the dish. That will keep them warm. These are good at room temperature so you should be fine! Enjoy!
