How to Make Two Bite Burgers


  • 1Tear one hamburger bun into pieces. Place in food processor or blender container. Cover; pulse on and off, to form fine crumbs.
  • 2Combine ground beef, 1/2 cup bread crumbs, onion, egg white, garlic, salt and pepper in medium bowl, mixing lightly but thoroughly. Lightly shape into eight 1/2- inch thick mini patties.
  • 3Place patties on grid over medium, ash-covered coals. Grill, covered, 8 to 9 minutes (over medium heat on preheated gas grill, 9 to 10 minutes) until instant-read thermometer inserted horizontally into center registers 160 degrees F, turning occasionally. About 1 to1/2 minutes before burgers are done, place rolls, cut sides down, on grid. Grill until lightly toasted.

    Serve burgers in buns with any of the topping variations, as desired.
  • 4Mango-Pineapple Salsa:
    Combine mango, pineapple, tomato, jalapeno pepper, mint, lime juice and salt in small bowl. Refrigerate until ready to use.
    Makes 1 cup
  • 5Spicy Caramelized Onions:
    Heat olive oil in large nonstick skillet over medium heat until hot. Add yellow onion and red or green jalapeno peppers or sweet red bell peppers. Cook 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Reduce heat to medium-low; stir in 1/2 teaspoon cumin. Cook 15 to 18 minutes or until onions are very tender and golden brown, stirring frequently. Season with salt, as desired.
    Makes 1 1/2 cups
  • 6Creamy Yogurt-Feta Sauce:
    Combine Greek yogurt, feta cheese, onion and oregano in small bowl. Season with salt and pepper, as desired. Refrigerate until ready to use.
    Makes about 3/4 cup
  • 7Tip: To broil burgers, preheat broiler. Place burgers on rack in broiler pan so surface of beef is 2 to 3 inches from heat element. Broil 9 to 10 minutes to medium (160°F ) doneness, turning the burgers once. Place buns, cut sides up, on broiler pan so surface is 2 to 3 inches from heat element.
