Mini Hamburgers

More of the little things ... Mini-Hamburgers, or "Sliders"!

These are easy to manage party-munchies, and most kids love them, too.
You don't need any special equipment to make them ~

But I love my gadgets. :)

The bun pan is manufactured by Chicago Metalic, available at King Arthur Flour.
The mini-hamburger press is exclusive to

The ground meat of your choice is rolled into balls, about 1 1/2-ounces to 2-ounces each in weight.
Line the bottom of the hamburger press with plastic film (to facilitate removal of the patties).

Season however you like; I used Grill Mates "Montreal" Seasoning.
It's very good and convenient.

The press is not necessary, but it's fun and fast to make them; four at a time.

Then just put them on the hot grill ~

And let them sizzle. Mmm... Smells so good!

Flip once until done the way you like them.
And serve on mini-buns (I like them toasted), with any of your favorite condiments:
I kept them simple this time, just mayonnaise on some, and Dijon mustard on others.

Each topped with a tomato slice. But you could add cheese, lettuce, onions, mushrooms, or anthing you like.

And in keeping with the 'mini' theme, tiny cornichon pickles.
