When it comes to patio weather, picnics and pool party season finger foods are an essential for these (not to mention all those sports teams doing sports stuff when you feed people food to watch the sports things and cheer on the sports stuff). They make for less serving tools, easy eating, and fun for kids. Cooking for a crowd is best done in batches and mini burgers made in muffin tins with a recipe that takes you less than half an hour to make a full dozen? That’s money. Serve these up with some oven baked crinkle fries and you have a fun dinner, or party food for a small crowd. You’ll be amazed at how easy these are, and how much less messy they are from traditional burgers and sliders. Finger food at it’s finest!
- Cooking Spray
- 12 burger bun halves
- 3 slices, pre-cooked bacon cut into pieces
- 1 lb ground turkey (chicken or beef would also work here)
- 1/2 cup yellow onion, diced
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1/2 tsp pepper
- 2 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
- 4 cheese slices, quartered
- 12 dill pickle slices
- Any additional toppings you choose!
- Muffin Tin
- Stove top non-stick cooking pan
- Preheat your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
- In a non-stick cooking pan, cook your ground turkey (or beef) and diced onions until the onions begin to soften and the meat begins to brown. Add in your salt & pepper and Worcestershire sauce and continue cooking until well browned and all liquids have dissipated. Set aside.
- Take out your muffin tin, and spray each cup with a non-stick cooking spray. Press the 12 bun halves into each, squishing them slightly to create a "bowl" or cup shape for the meat.
- Spoon the meat evenly into each cup. Top with a dollop of ketchup on each, then your quartered cheese slices (small squares), followed by your bacon slice pieces.
- Bake in the oven for 5-7 minutes or until the buns are browned and the cheese is melty.
- Remove from oven, and top with a pickle slice, finished off with a toothpick to hold it all together. Additional toppings can be added here as well!
- Serve them up sided with your favorite sides - we chose oven baked crinkle cut fries. Classic. Enjoy!!
