  1. Combine the ground beef, pickles, onion, Parmesan cheese, mayonnaise, ketchup, garlic, salt, and pepper in a bowl. Form the mixture into 4 patties.
  2. Heat the olive oil in a skillet over medium heat. Cook the hamburger patties in the hot oil until the burgers are cooked to your desired degree of doneness, 8 to 10 minutes for well done.
  3. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper, and set aside. Cover a flat surface with the flour. Divide the bread dough into 4 even pieces; roll each piece into a flattened rectangle on the floured surface at least twice the size of the American cheese slices. Place one slice of American cheese on each piece of dough; top each with one of the cooked patties and another slice of American cheese. Fold the dough over the top of the meat and cheese. Pinch the dough around the edges to seal completely. Arrange on the prepared baking sheet with the seam side facing downward. Brush the tops with the melted butter; move to a warm area and allow to rise for 20 minutes.
  4. Preheat an oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C).
  5. Bake in the preheated oven until the bread has browned, about 20 minutes.

I have stuffed this bread with a lot of things, like chicken Parmesan, hardboiled eggs cheese and ham, italian sausage peppers and onions as well as many other combinations. Use your imagination and just have some fun. It is fun for me to see a new persons expression when they bite into a surprise! That is why I cook.

This recipe is good, but is definitely not worth the trouble.

I loved these!!!! I used the canned unfrozen biscuit dough and seemed two together. Don't put too much meat in.

This was really good. I used sliced pickles and onions, just like a regular cheeseburger, instead of minced. I also used puff pastry which was perfect. You've got a winner with this one!

This is delicious, but Pizza or French bread dough found in the dairy section would be quicker than the frozen dough.

Oh my gosh I made this for my family the other night and they loved it!! It was so tasty. Made extra and put one in for hubby's lunch the next day and it even tasted good cold. Even my 5 and 8 year olds ate all their food!! Well done and thank you! Nadey Babes, South Africa.

What a hoot this is! We loved it and it was great the next day too. Very clever idea! I think I'll try forming the meat into "fingers" and wrap them in dough for Halloween as Witch's fingers. Thanks for sharing!
