I like spicy foods, but I can only handle them in moderation. These are a nice spicy "snack-attizer".

1 lb

Directions Step-By-Step

On each toothpick, thread 1 half of the tomato, mushroom and onion and set aside.

In large mixing bowl, all other ingredients except for the cheese. Shape tablespoonfuls of mixture into meatballs and flatten slightly to resemble hamburgers.
