Hamburger Pinwheels © 1950
1 small onion minced
2 tablespoons fat
1 pound ground beef
1/4 pound pork sausage
1 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon pepper
1/4 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
1 recipe baking powder biscuit*
Cook onion and fat until tender but not brown. Add meat and cook until browned. Season with salt, pepper and Worcestershire sauce. Roll out biscuit dough into a rectangle 1/4 inch thick. Spread meat on dough and roll like a jelly roll. Cut into slices about 1 1/2 inches thick. place cut side up, on greased baking sheet and bake in hot oven (400ºF.) about 15 minutes. Serves 8.
Ham Rolls** — Use chopped ham and hard-cooked eggs with sweet pickle and mayonnaise instead of beef mixture. Bake as above.
Corned Beef Rolls — Blend a 12-ounce can corned beef with 3/4 cup evaporated milk. Use instead of beef mixture.
* When I've made this in the past, I just used a can of pre-made biscuits. Also, because I like the taste, I like to add a little chopped black olives and green bell pepper.
** I've made the ham version of this recipe, and it actually reminds me of a Hot Pocket. However, I forewent the eggs/pickle/mayo and used assorted shredded cheeses. A great side dish to soup (split pea, perhaps?) or as-is.
