Bite Size Bacon Double Cheeseburger Puffs tastes just like a burger in a bite size puff.  They are soft, tender and a little buttery just like a hamburger bun.Loaded with makings of our favorite burgers:  beef, bacon and cheese.  This recipe is a complete hit game day or any day!

'Bite size' finger food seems to be the theme around here.  We  have enjoyed countless quinoa bite lunches.  Then came the pizza bites and you had to know the cheeseburger bites would not be far behind.  Chad raved about them.  He was so excited.  He kept dipping them in ketchup and saying "Its amazing they taste just like a bacon double cheeseburger".  I was in total agreement.  Well there you have it....

For lunch we serve a small portion of these puffs with fresh vegetables and it makes Munchkin totally happy.  But, as an appetizer these are perfect.  Serve with your favorite burger toppings, and even a pickle on the side.  Perfect!

What is your perfect formula for getting your kids to eat?  Right now, ours is bite size food and fresh veggies.

Dinner's Ready!

With love from our kitchen table to yours!  XO

  1. I really like recipes like these. Take a classic favourite and make it finger food. only thing, it's too dangerous. Since it is so small, the calories are negligible, right?

  7. Have you ever used standard sized muffins vs. mini sized? I don't really want to have to go and buy mini muffin pans. Just wonder if it would take longer to bake or would they be too heavy altogether if bigger?

    1. I would try the regular size muffin pan. Watch your time, as it will most likely take longer to bake. Let us know how it goes and enjoy!

  8. I would love to make these, but, 2 teaspoons of salt? Also bacon and cheese that has salt. Do you have the nutritional values for these little gems?

  11. I made these for a baby shower I hosted because the mom to be was craving cheeseburgers. Substituted ground turkey and used much less salt. Also, I made them the day before and then just reheated in the oven before serving. Big hit!

  13. How many are considered a serving size?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. It depends. If you are making the mini muffin tins, my 5 year old eats about 2 or 3 and we eat 4 to 6, along side a salad or veggie dish. I hope that helps. Enjoy!

    1. Try dividing everything by six!!! Since there are two eggs, beat them then take one-sixth and use the rest for scrambled eggs.
