This is a BOSH! recipe through and through!

What an exciting and interesting spin on a dough ball recipe... making it cheese burger flavoured! Genius... if we do say so ourselves.

These are our incredibly delicious cheeseburger dough balls. They’re fun, bite-sized balls made with pizza dough and stuffed with a slice of veggie sausage, dairy-free cheese and caramelised onion.

A great vegan finger food idea or plant based starter to share with friends.

For the cheeseburger dough balls

  • Vegan cheese, grated
  • Dough
  • Caramelised onions

  1. 1.

    To make the dough: Add the flour and salt to a large bowl and mix well. Mix the yeast, sugar, olive oil with the lukewarm water and leave for a minute or so.

  2. 2.

    Create a hole in the middle of the flour and gradually add the liquid until you have a dough. Tip the dough onto a floured chopping board. Knead for a few minutes until the dough is springy. Transfer back to the bowl and cover with a damp cloth for about an hour. The dough should have doubled in size. Transfer back onto the floured chopping board and knead again to knock back. Divide the dough in half then half again until you get 18 small pieces of dough.

  3. 3.

    To make the onions: Add the olive oil and red onion to a small pan cook on a low heat for 20 minutes until soft and caramelised.

  4. 4.

    To make the burgers: Microwave the veggie sausages for 2 minutes and allow to cool. Add them to a large bowl with the garlic powder, salt and pepper. Mash together to form a mixture.

  5. 5.

    Take small amounts of the mixture and use your hands to form into mini patties. Add all the burgers to a large pan with the oil. Fry on a medium heat for 2 minutes on each side. Set aside.

  6. 6.

    To make the cheese burger dough balls: Form the dough into a small circle. Firstly add a small piece of cheese, then a little fried onion, then the mini burger and another slice of cheese. Fold in the corners of the dough and squeeze together to seal.

  7. 7.

    Transfer to a baking tray with a little olive oil in the bottom. Continue the process until all 18 are formed and in the baking tray and are nestled close to each other. Brush a little melted vegan butter over the top then sprinkle with sesame seeds.

  8. 8.

    Bake at 177℃ for 25 minutes until cooked and golden on top. Allow to cool a little then dip into ketchup.
