Mini Burgers or Burger Hors d’oeuvres

Mini Burgers or Burger Hors d’oeuvres

Mini Burgers are great for parties as a pass around hors d’oeuvre or how about plating them for dinner so your guests don’t fill up on just one item. Mini burgers fill one up with ample protein without feeling like you just ate a loaded pound of burger meat!

Protein and flavor packed with 5280meat’s grass-fed and grass-finished beef I used, this paleo recipe will be sure to keep you satisfied. I really like the spice combination for these burgers as they pack a lot of punch for being so small. Be sure you check your Worcestershire sauce, if you opt to use some, to ensure it is labeled gluten-free. It’s easy to find, you just need to read the bottles.

I always seem to not have set enough time aside when planning for a dinner party. I’m usually hopping in the shower with items still cooking when guests are to arrive in a matter of moments. If you are like me, I have some good news: these cook quickly due to them being so small so you can make many of them fast if you are pressed for time. Enjoy making them!
