Cheeseburger Bites – Tips and Tricks

  • Try a different meat! For a leaner option, substitute ground turkey or chicken for the beef. You could also turn these into a tasty brunch offering with your favorite breakfast sausage.
  • Add some spice. Swap the regular salt for a seasoned variety, or add a dash of hot sauce for an extra kick. Even a little Worcestershire sauce will go a long way when it comes to flavor!
  • Don’t need as much? Easily halve the recipe or make a full batch and freeze half for later.
  • Time saving tip: I love to cook big batches of ground beef in the slow cooker, then portion them out to freeze for recipes like this one!

    If you’d rather cook it fresh, you can pop the bacon in the oven while you brown the meat on the stove.

FAQ‌ ‌-‌ ‌Common‌ ‌Recipe‌ ‌Questions‌ ‌

Can I freeze cheeseburger bites?

Absolutely. Flash freeze them on a parchment-lined baking sheet, then store them in an airtight container or freezer bag. They should keep for 1 to 2 months.

When you’re ready to eat, pop them in the oven at 350°F for about 10 minutes or until warmed through.

Will this recipe work with a standard size muffin pan?

It’s worth a try! Just watch your time, as they will most likely take longer to bake.

How many burger bites are considered a serving size?

When prepared as a meal, adults will typically eat 4 to 6 each along with a side dish.

You could probably reduce that amount by half if serving at a potluck with many dishes to choose from.

  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?

  2. You have absolutely nailed the perfect finger foods 🙂 Thinking of you Donna and hope you and your family are doing good.

  3. amazing!! Thank you for yet another great idea! Even i prefer finger foods when the hubby works late!

  4. Amazing! Thank you for yet another great recipe! Even i prefer finger foods when my hubby is working all night 😀

  5. i use turkey meat and goat cheese with mine and my health nut personal trainer friend loves these bit size puffs

  6. 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!

  7. 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?

  8. 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!

    1. I want to make these for a superbowl potluck at work, if i reheat in the oven the morning before work (make them the night before) do you think they would stay good in a crock pot on warm all morning? Or would I not reheat in oven and just let crockpot warm them up?

    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.
