Bite Size Burgers

Why this is the best canape recipe...

1. They are delicious
2. They are cute
3. They are so easy
4. They are burgers!

I think #4 sells it enough. These can be whipped up in 20 minutes and will be wiped up by your guests in 30 seconds.


I'm going to get right to it, no faffing. Firstly, the bun, 1 bagel = 4 mini burgers. Of course any buns can be used but bagels are thick, doughy and work very well.



To cut your buns take a shot glass, I used plastic one as they are sharper around the edge and cut through the bagel better, if you only have glass cut around the edges with a sharp knife. For both the top and bottom of the burger bun cut from the inside of the bagel.


Now for the burgers, you won't need much mince as they are so tiny, I used most of the mince to make normal sized burgers. Put 500grams of mince in a bowl and mix in one beaten egg yolk, 10 finely crushed cream crackers, one tablespoon of tomato ketchup and a pinch of salt and pepper. Roll out to around 1/2cm thick. I use lean mince from the butchers and they often mince it twice for me, I find the crackers absorb better and enjoy the final texture more.


Again with a shot glass cut out your mince burgers.


Heat up your buns.


Here you add a little cheese, leave it to melt for a couple of minutes.


To keep them hot whilst you cook the rest put them in the oven at 90C with your buns.When ready put your burger together, layered up and place a toothpick through the middle to hold it all together. I added plum tomatoes sliced and lettuce. Gherkins, bacon, guacamole, whatever you want can be added now.


So now I've finally found a great canape recipe and I'm so excited to make them again. Any others to share??
