Western Burgers

1 1/2 cups warm water
2 tablespoons yeast
4 tablespoons granulated sugar
1 teaspoon salt
4 tablespoons melted shortening
4 cups flour
Combine water, yeast, sugar and salt. Let stand a few minutes. Add shortening and half of flour.
Stir until well blended. Gradually add remaining flour until a firm dough results. Place in a greased
bowl and let rise.
1 pound hamburger meat
1 small chopped onion
2 teaspoons prepared mustard
2 tablespoons salad dressing
1/4 pound grated cheese
Salt and pepper to taste
Brown hamburger and onion. Drain off fat. Add remaining ingredients. Refrigerate until cool.
Roll out dough 1/4- to 1/2-inch thick. Cut into 3 1/2-inch squares. Pour about 1/2 cup of meat mixture in center of each square. Pull corners together and pinch all the openings closed. Turn upside down on a greased pan. Mash down slightly; let rise until double in size.
Bake at 350 degrees F until golden brown. Brush with melted margarine.
