Cheeseburger Bites

Ingredients:

 

1 tbsp President butter, melted

6 burger buns, cut in half

3 slices bacon, chopped

250g beef mince

½ onion diced

½ tsp salt

Tomato sauce

3 slices Melrose melts cut into 4 squares

Gherkins, sliced

 

Directions:

 

1. Heat oven to 180°C

2. Brush 12 regular-size muffin cups with melted butter. Press half of a bun, cut side up, into each muffin cup, pressing to the edges and set aside.

3. Meanwhile, in a pan cook bacon over medium heat until crisp; transfer to paper towel-lined plate to drain. Pour off most of the fat but keep about a tablespoon in the pan for frying.

4. Add beef, onion and salt to the pan. Cook for 5 to 7 minutes, stirring frequently, until mince is brown and cooked through; drain.

5. Divide mixture evenly among muffin cups. Gently press mixture down into cups. Top each with 1 teaspoon tomato sauce. Place a cheese square on top of each burger bite.

6. Bake 7 to 9 minutes or until cheese is melted. Immediately top with crispy cooked bacon, followed by gherkin and more tomato sauce if desired.

7. Serve with crispy skinny fries and ENJOY!
