These baked Mini Burger Bites With Sauce are like 'bunless' sliders! I slathered on the most delicious burger sauce that will have your guests licking their fingers clean. These are truly a fun skewered appetizer that both kids and adults will love!
Set oven to 350 degrees F. Combine burger ingredients in a large bowl and mix until combined.
Using a mini ice cream scooper, scoop out about ½ oz of burger meat onto a greased baking dish and flatten each slightly using your hand. (If you use a ½ oz scoop, you should get about 30 mini burgers. If your using a 1 oz. scoop, you will get about 15 burgers.)
Bake for 8-10 minutes or until pink juices are clear. In the meantime, mix up your burger sauce by combining all ingredients in a small bowl.
When cooked through, remove from oven and add a cheese squares onto each burger. Bake another minute or so until cheese is melted.
Skewer burgers onto skewer starting with lettuce, then tomato, then burger and finished with a pickle. Lay flat on a plate and drizzle with sauce. Serve immediately.
*Yield is about 30 skewers if forming burgers into ½ oz. like I did.Use a mini ice cream scoop for consistent burgers.You can also grill these if you wish!Serve with extra sauce on the side!
