These Mini Bacon Cheeseburger Bites are perfect for your next game day party, neighborhood soiree or kid sleepover!! They are so easy and absolutely delectable. I love to serve them for movie night with Bacon Wrapped Pineapple and Beer Battered Onion Rings with Dipping Sauce.
You can make a small batch or a huge batch for a crowd. This fun recipe takes full advantage of crispy crown potatoes which can be found in the freezer section of your local grocery store. Not all grocery stores carry them so you may need to call around first. A crispy crown is like a short tater tot!! Trust me! It is almost the exact same thing just different shape.
How do you make Mini Bacon Cheeseburger Bites?
First arrange your crispy crowns in a single layer on a baking sheet. Next place the crispy crowns in the oven and cook while you shape the burger patties. Then shape the beef into little one inch round patties that are fairly flat so they cook all the way through. Now place those in a single layer on a cookie sheet and place them in the oven on the rack below the crispy crowns.
The crispy crowns will take about twenty minutes and the burgers will take about ten minutes. Now cut your cheese slices and bacon into ninths. Finally place the cheese and the bacon on the stacks and place back in the hot oven for a couple of minutes to melt the cheese.
More options for these bites
- Top the stack with another crispy crown.
- Use long fancy toothpick or bamboo picks to secure these for easy eating.
- Cut mini dill pickles into thin round slices and add to the stacks.
- Use different types of cheese like pepper jack, Swiss, cheddar, Muenster, Monterey Jack or bleu cheese.
- Slice grape tomatoes or cherry tomatoes in thin round slices and top the stacks.
- Make them double cheese burgers and add another burger patty, cheese and bacon. Secure with extra long toothpick.
