Muffin Cup Beef and Cheddar Pies


  • 2 loaves refrigerated bread dough
  • 2 pounds ground beef
  • 1 can (8 ounces) mushroom stems and pieces, drained
  • 1-1/4 cups shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons Italian seasoning
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • Homemade or Store Bough Marinara Sauce, warmed



  • Preheat oven to 350°. Meanwhile, in a Dutch oven, cook beef over medium heat until no longer pink, breaking into crumbles, 12-15 minutes; drain. Stir in mushrooms, cheese and seasonings.
  • Divide each loaf into 10 portions; roll each into a 4-in. circle. Top with 1/4 cup filling; bring edges of dough up over filling and pinch to seal.
  • Place meat pies in greased muffin cups, seam side down. Bake until golden brown, 20-25 minutes. Serve with warm Marinara sauce for dipping.
  • Note: Cooled, put beef pies in a freezer container. To use, reheat beef pies on greased baking sheets in a preheated 350° oven until heated through.
