Hamburger Puffs

This is a classic from back in the day (read: my childhood).

1-2 loaves defrosted Rhodes bread dough
1 lb. ground beef
1/2 chopped onion
salt and pepper
roughly 2 cups shredded cheese

Season ground beef and onion and brown, draining any juices. Preheat oven to 350. Cut loaves of bread dough into 10-12 slices each. Spread with fingers so it looks like a mini-pizza. Top each disc with a spoonful of ground beef and some shredded cheese. Bring edges together so it makes a little bundle. Place seam side down on a baking sheet (bonus clean-up points for covering the baking sheet in nonstick foil or parchment paper). Bake until puffed and golden brown. My mom always served these with some sort of veggie and ketchup for dipping.
