Is there anything better than a big juicy bacon cheese burger? Not really, but if anything comes close, it would be these scrumptious little bacon burger bites! Enjoy an entire saucy & sticky, cheesy, bacony burger and you
probably won’t even need a napkin! 🙂
Such a fun way to enjoy lunch, or just snackin’ around the TV! These little guys are extra special because they’re filled with AND glazed in, Sweet Baby Rays..yes they are!
These juicy little burgers will ooze warm cheddar cheese, but that’s only after you bite through the sticky, crispy Sweet Baby Ray’s bacon, and get through the smoky and tender, BBQ sauce filled, mini burger…drool! Make LOTS! 😉
What you’ll need for 8 medium burger bites (add the ingredients accordingly if you want more)
**Please ignore the biscuits in the picture, I thought about doing some mini onion buns..but I ended up not making them! 🙂
1/2 lb of lean ground beef
Sweet Baby Ray’s BBQ Sauce (I Used Spicy Chipotle) 1/2 cup, to add into the beef and 1/2 cup to glaze the meatballs
1 strip of bacon per each bite
1″ cube of cheddar for stuffing into each burger bite
1 egg for binding the mini burgers
1/2 cup of Panko Bread Crumbs for binding the mini burgers
In a medium bowl combine the beef, egg, Panko & the 1/2 cup of SBR, add S&P to taste
Form the meatball in your hand and add a cube of cheddar into the center, seal it up very tight!
Then wrap that little burger in a strip of bacon
Place them seam side down onto your baking sheet with a rack, and glaze with the remaining SBR!
Bake them at 400 degrees for about 25 minutes, or until they’re super glazed, sticky and cooked through! The smell from the oven will be that of a BBQ Pit! 🙂
Serve hot and serve LOTS..trust me!
Some Cole Slaw on the side wouldn’t hurt either, I’ll leave that up to you! But if you have a good slaw recipe..I’d love to hear it, I really need one! ~Enjoy! 🙂
