Burger Bites

Servings 20 Bites


  • 1 lb. ground beef
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1/4 tsp. black pepper
  • 1/2 tsp. garlic powder
  • 20 pcs. cheddar or Monterrey jack cheese sliced into 1inch squares
  • 4 pcs. cooked bacon (be sure not to over-cook)
  • 10 grape tomatoes, cut in half
  • 20 slivers jalapeno or pickle, if desired
  • 20 skewers
  • 20 waffle cut potatoes, to use as a base


  • Break each piece of cooked bacon into 5 pieces. This will give you enough bacon for each burger bite.
  • Combine ground beef with salt, pepper, and garlic powder.
  • If using the waffle potatoes, bake them according to the package instructions.
  • Shape all 20 pieces at once into round patties about 1" in diameter, making sure to flatten so the burger bite will be able to stand on a tray. Set aside.
  • Heat a nonstick frying pan over medium-high heat and place all burger bites into the pan at the same time.
  • Brown for about 3-4 minutes and flip each burger bite.
  • Top with the square pieces of cheese and continue to cook for another 3-4 minutes.
  • If the cheese is not melting, cover the pan for about a minute and remove the cover.
  • Remove the burger bites from the pan (place on waffle potatoes if using them), and plate on serving dish.
  • Top each bite with a small piece of bacon, a sliver of pepper or pickle, half of a grape tomato, and then slide the skewer in the middle of the tomato to secure.
