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

Ingredients

1 lb
ground beef
1 tsp
worcestershire sauce
1/4 tsp
salt
1/4 tsp
pepper
1/4 tsp
montreal steak seasoning
2 oz
pepperjack cheese, sliced into 1/4-inch slices
1 small
jalapeno pepper, seeded and chopped
1 small
onion, sliced
6
baby portobello mushrooms, quartered
14 large
cherry tomatoes, halved
28
frilly toothpicks

Step-By-Step

1In a 10-inch skillet, place Worcestershire sauce, mushrooms and onions and saute until onions are translucent. Set aside and let cool.

2On each toothpick, thread 1 half of the tomato, mushroom and onion and set aside.

3In large mixing bowl, all other ingredients except for the cheese. Shape tablespoonfuls of mixture into meatballs and flatten slightly to resemble hamburgers.

4Using the same skillet, cook burgers over medium-high heat for 2-3 minutes on each side or until desired doneness. During the last minute of cooking, place cheese over each hamburger and let the cheese melt. Insert 1 toothpick with the tomato, mushroom and onion in each burger and serve warm.
