Monday Munchies: Cheeseburger Pop Tart

Morning, noon or late night – there’s no wrong time for a cheeseburger Pop-Tart.

Serve with special sauce or ketchup and a special Spinach™ salad.


  • ½ lb. lean ground beef
  • 1 tbsp. minced onion
  • 1 tbsp. steak seasoning blend (salt, pepper & garlic powder)
  • 1 cup shredded cheese blend
  • 2 slices cheddar cheese
  • 2 (14 oz) refrigerated prepared pizza dough sheets
  • 12 hamburger dill pickles, chopped
  • Egg wash (1 egg, beaten + 1 tbsp. water)
  • 2 tbsp. sesame seeds


  1. Chill the dough and preheat grill to medium. Brown ground beef and minced onion and steak seasoning blend when cooked through.
  2. Toss in cheese blend and stir until melted and well blended. Remove cheeseburger mixture from heat and set aside.
  3. Working quickly with chilled dough, roll out prepared pizza crust on parchment paper and brush on the egg wash.
  4. Top each cheese slice with ⅓ cup cheeseburger mixture, spreading slightly. Place 4 pickles on top of meat for each tart. Top with the remaining prepared pizza dough and cut between cheese slices to separate the 6 pop tarts.
  5. Using kitchen scissors, cut the parchment to further separate, and seal the edges with egg wash and a fork. Baste tops with remaining egg wash and sprinkle each with sesame seeds.
  6. Grill 5 minutes per side. Serve with sliced tomatoes, ketchup and mustard.


    For best results, serve with a Spinach™ salad.
