Cheddar Burger Appetizers

Jennifer Bass


I love to eat bite-sized food and often make what I call "snack-attizers" with a side dish for dinner. It's a nice change for something small instead of a heavy meal.

What a fun appetizer! The Montreal seasoning added to the meat adds a ton of flavor. These are super easy to prepare and everyone will love them! Great for a party, a tailgate or even a light dinner. The Test Kitchen

How to Make Cheddar Burger Appetizers


  1. In a 10-inch skillet, place Worcestershire sauce, mushrooms and onions and saute until onions are translucent. Set aside and let cool.
  2. On each toothpick, thread 1 half of the tomato, mushroom and onion and set aside.
  3. In large mixing bowl, all other ingredients except for the cheese. Shape tablespoonfuls of mixture into meatballs and flatten slightly to resemble hamburgers.
  4. Using 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.
