Yield: 12 mini burgers Prep 10 mins Grill 9 mins on medium-high

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 pounds organic ground beef (90% lean)
  • 1 tablespoon dried minced onion
  • 1 tablespoon spicy brown mustard
  • 3/4 teaspoon garlic salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon Italian seasoning
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 12 small round dinner or potato rolls
  • 12 very thin slices 2% cheddar cheese (about 3 ounces total)
  • 1 large plum tomato sliced into 12 thin slices

Make It

1. Heat gas grill to medium-high or prepare charcoal grill with medium-hot coals. In a large bowl, mix together the ground beef, dried onion, mustard, garlic salt, Italian seasoning and black pepper. Mix until well combined.

2. Shape seasoned beef into 12 small patties, about 1/4 cup mixture for each, forming patties that are 2 1/2 inches across and 1/2 inch thick.

3. Transfer hamburger patties to the grill and cook 4 minutes. Flip and cook 4 additional minutes. Top burgers with cheese. Slice should be roughly the size of the burger; if not, cut or fold it to fit. Grill until slightly melted, 1 minute.

4. Slice buns in half horizontally and transfer burgers to buns. Place a plum tomato slice on each. Serve warm.
