Mini Burger Bites

Since, sliders are too common I needed another approach to making the mini burgers.

Here’s a cool way of serving definite crowd pleaser mini burgers, as a sophisticated, yet fun party appetizer. Stand up a bunch of these burgers on skewers in a glass/ vase, or use a head of lettuce as a stand for them and it doubles up as a table center piece too!


·         1 lb. Ground Beef
·         1 tsp. Garlic Powder
·         1 tsp. Onion Salt
·         1 1/2 tbsp. Worcestershire Sauce
·         3-4 Flat Bread (I used Store bought Naan)
·         Bacon strips
·         Lettuce
·         Slice cheese
·         cherry/ grape tomatoes
·         Mayonnaise
·         BBQ Sauce/ Ketchup
·         Skewers


1.       Start by cutting little round pieces of the flat bread using the top of a salt shaker or something around that size. You’ll need 2 per Bacon burger stick…so cut out as many as you’d like to make.

2.       Next cut the lettuce into squares about the same size as the bread you just cut. Do the same for the cheese.

3.       Cut the cherry (or Grape) tomatoes into halves.

4.       Next step…fry the bacon slices until they are crispy and then cut them, roughly the same size as the lettuce and cheese.

5.       Now for the burgers. Season your ground beef with some garlic powder, onion salt, Worcestershire sauce and ground black pepper.

6.       Make little meatballs and flatten them to the same size as your bread cut outs. I put a little divot in them so that they don’t shrink too much when you cook them.

7.       In a skillet - fry your mini burgers for a couple minutes on each side until they’re cooked the way you like.

8.       To assemble the Mini Burger Bites. Start with a bread (you can spread a little mayo on there if you like), then a couple of pieces of lettuce, a piece of bacon, the mini burger (I put a dash of BBQ sauce on mine), a slice of cheese, another piece of bread and top it off with a half cherry tomato.

Stand the Mini Bacon Burger Skewers in a glass to serve them.
