My Super Bowl Sunday

  While my hubby was watching the Green Bay Packers and the Pittsburgh Steelers battle in yesterday's Super Bowl, I was catching up on a little program called The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. I'm sure you've heard of it...

Anyway, because we don't have a DVR... I know, it's tragic... I had to wait for BRAVO to air the re-runs. So my Super Bowl Sunday consisted of me laying up in my bedroom for hours watching the episodes I missed. Of course my girls would rather be up there with me while they annoyed each other endlessly. What's a girl have to do to get some alone time with The Housewives? Geesh...

Don't get me wrong, I'm all for mother/daughter time, but not while my stories are on, OK? A little explanation here... "stories" are what my Grandma Rosie used to call her Spanish soap operas...

And I'm totally going to justify calling The Housewives series a soap opera... a real life one at that. The cat fights, multiple divorces, vacations to beautiful getaways, rich people... you see where I'm going here? Alright, there may not be long lost evil twin siblings or people dying and then all of a sudden they've come back to life, but they never really died in the first place, it was only a coma they were in... unbeknownst to everyone.

Anyway, I think I pretty much justified it... moving on...

After being in my bedroom for quite a while, watching my stories, I figured I better go down stairs and feed my family. I decided to make Sioux Burgers... it's fair food... yummy fair food. At the end of summer, my home town puts on a fair and these are served every year. They are usually fried, but I decided to bake them. So, here's my version...

Sioux Burgers

  • 2 tablespoons of olive oil
  • 1 pound of ground beef
  • 1/2 whole onion, diced
  • 3 whole new potatoes, diced
  • 1 teaspoon of salt
  • 1 teaspoon of pepper
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons of garlic powder
  • 2 teaspoons of season salt
  • 2 packages (8 count), of Pillsbury Grands Biscuits, Flaky Layers (16.3 OZ)
  • 1/2 cup of flour, divided
  • 1 whole egg
  • 2 tablespoons of milk
Heat the olive oil in a Dutch oven on medium heat. Add the diced onion and diced potatoes. Cook until the onion is soft and the potatoes are nearly done, about 20 minutes. Add the ground beef and cook until done, mixing to combine with the onion and potatoes. Drain if necessary. Remove from the heat, set aside and cover. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees (F).

Dust a clean surface with flour, as well as your rolling pin. Roll your biscuits to about 6 inches in diameter.

Spoon a few spoonfuls of your meat and potato mixture on one side of the rolled out biscuit, making sure to stay away from the edges.

Fold the far side of the biscuit and stretch it over the meat and potato mixture. Roll the edges in toward the biscuit.

Using a fork, press the edges down to seal and transfer to a baking sheet.

Whisk the egg and milk together for an egg wash. Brush the egg mixture over the biscuit. This will help your Sioux Burger to brown nicely. I am able to fit six burgers on a baking sheet comfortably. Bake for 13-15 minutes, or until golden brown. Makes 16 Sioux Burgers.

Now go bake yourself some Sioux Burgers... Enjoy!
