Garbage Bread is crazy delicious, perfect for a party or weeknight meal, and endlessly adaptable! My favorite is this Bacon Cheeseburger Garbage Bread…it’s cheesy, packed with flavor, and served with classic hamburger sauce!

I had never heard of “Garbage Bread” until recently…but I’ve gathered it’s a whole thing in the world! The concept is simple…throw whatever you like into a pizza crust and roll it up, cinnamon roll-style. Easy? For sure. Delicious? You bet. Low-calorie? Um…no.

If you’re looking for something a little more heart-healthy, today isn’t your lucky day. BUT if you’re looking for classic game-day, party food. Well, I gotcha, boo.

My favorite version of Garbage Bread is of the stick-to-your-bones Bacon Cheeseburger variety. It essentially tastes like a White Castle Cheeseburger. (And if you’ve never tried a White Castle I feel both sorry for you and jealous of you all at the same time.) But, you seriously can throw whatever you want to in Garbage Bread…Buffalo Chicken Dip? Do it. Leftover Spaghetti? Trust me, delicious. Spinach and Artichoke Dip? SERIOUSLY YES.

This low-level food…which I am happy to make no apologies for. We’re all adult-ish here. We’re allowed.

And because I love you so much I made a short little video to show you exactly how easy this is.

Now, if that video wasn't enough...let me talk you through it. You will fry some bacon in a skillet until it's crisp! Garbage Bread Then in that same skillet, sauté some chopped onion, and ground beef until it's cooked. Add to that some steak seasoning (I use Montreal), and some Velveeta. It's necessary here. Garbage Bread Spread out some pizza dough and spread the "garbage" all over it. Oh and more cheese. Garbage Bread Roll it up cinnamon roll style and bake! It will be a glorious log of calories when it comes out of the oven... GARBAGE BREAD!! This is a simple recipe that can be adapted SO many ways! Bacon Cheeseburger Garbage Bread is our favorite, but throw your leftovers in a pizza crust and roll it up! The possibilities are endless. Slice it and serve with a simple burger sauce. GARBAGE BREAD!! This is a simple recipe that can be adapted SO many ways! Bacon Cheeseburger Garbage Bread is our favorite, but throw your leftovers in a pizza crust and roll it up! The possibilities are endless. Like I said before, there are so many variations on this. I hope you try it!

Garbage Bread
 
Author:
Serves: serves 4-6
Ingredients
  • ½ pound chopped bacon
  • 1 cup chopped onion
  • 1 pound lean ground beef
  • 1 tablespoon steak seasoning (I used McCormick)
  • 12 ounces Velveeta, cubed
  • 1 (13.8 ounce) thin crust pizza dough (I used PIllsbury)
  • 1½ cups grated cheddar jack cheese
Sauce
  • ½ cup mayonnaise
  • 2 tablespoons ketchup
  • salt & pepper to taste
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 425°. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.
  2. In a large skillet over medium-low heat cook bacon until it's crisp. Remove the bacon from the pan and set aside.
  3. In the same skillet, with the bacon grease increase heat to medium high. Add the onions and ground beef into the skillet and cook until the the onions are soft and the meat is cooked through. Drain the excess liquid/grease from the pan. Place the skillet back on the heat and turn the heat to low. Add bacon back into the pan and season with the steak seasoning. Add in the Velveeta and stirring continuously cook until the cheese is melted. Remove the pan from the heat.
  4. Roll the pizza dough out onto the prepared baking sheet. The dough should be approximately a 15x10 rectangle. Spread the meat mixture evenly on top, leaving an inch at the edges to allow for spreading. Sprinkle the grated cheese on top of the meat. Roll up the pizza dough, starting with the long sides and pinch the crust together to seal. Bake seam side down for 15-20 minutes, or until golden brown. Allow the bread to cool for 5-10 minutes before slicing.
Sauce
  1. In a small bowl whisk together the mayonnaise, ketchup, salt, and pepper.
  2. Dip the sliced bread into the sauce, if desired.

Yum! Looks delicious.
I’m thinking of using mini pepperoni in place of the bacon and maybe cream cheese in place of the Velveeta (only because cream cheese is cheaper than Velveeta)

Can replace the Velveeta for something else?

Barb Fawcett

Shelly .. we are not fans of Velveeta cheese and it is very here. Can I substitute something like Boursin instead?

Elizabeth

Here’s a WONDERFUL recipe for homemade Velveeta. It takes some work but sooooo worth it! http://chickensintheroad.com/cooking/homemade-velveeta/

I am about to make this. It will be even better if you brush some melted butter with garlic powder on top of the loaf after rolling it!

Pamela

Absolutely the best idea Natalie! We are big garlic lovers here.

Not sure I love the name but the recipe looks delish!

In the written recipe I don’t see when to add steak seasoning or when to put bacon in.

Just made the Garbage Bread and used a Taco sauce for seasoning in deference to my other half loving Mexican food. Added shredded 4 cheese Mexican blend cheese into it also. Served it with bowls of salsa and it was a huge hit! Will definately be making this again and again ! Thanks so much for the recipe !

After reading the great reviews for this I decided to make it for dinner. What a huge mistake!! Maybe it was the Velveeta, which we never eat, but the bread was very salty and I added no extra salt. Recipe went right into the garbage along with the remains of the bread. Definitely not a hit in my house.

Can I use regular classic crust instead of thin? I have three cans on hand and wanted to make sure??

Throw in some diced dill pickles and it’s a full on hamburger. LOL Reading a few of the reviews, I think we all agree that this recipe can be changed to whatever taste you feel like having. Thanks. . . . . now I need to make this!!!

I have made something similar to this with ham and cheese, but I sliced beforehand and baked it like that. Is this possible with this recipe?

What a mess, the pizza crust stuck to the paper, couldn’t get it to roll cause of the sticking. This is why I don’t use parchment paper. I have maybe afew inches of dough covering the meat mixture on both ends, other than that, it mostly all open in the middle. Very tastee though. Just don’t think I’l be taking to my party.

I made my bread dough and while rising I cook beef and ground pork with onions, celery, bell pepper and garlic and a seeded jalapeño pepper if I have one. Add some diced tomatoes and cook till meat is no longer pink. Let cool. Grate mozzarella, pepper jack and cheddar. Roll out dough, spread meat over bread, sprinkle good amount cheese and roll up like a jelly roll. Put roll on cookie sheet and let rise for about 1 1/2 hours then bake at 350 for 45 to 60 minutes. Brush with butter. Let cool for 20 to 30 minutes… Read more »

I have been eyeing this recipe. I love that it can be changed so easily. I didn’t plan out anything for dinner tonight ahead of time and I am going to make this. Homemade pizza dough (because it is cheaper to make than buy plus no trip to the store). Looks like a great fridge buster kinda meal. I will be using what I have on hand while hoping to please my hungry bunch. Also it seems like it will travel well. We eat dinner at our church on Wednesday so that our whole family can be together for dinner.… Read more »
