Cheeseburger Bites Recipe

This is a recipe from my mother. I like to make up a batch or two and store in the freezer till I'm ready to cook them.—Holly Camozzi, Petaluma, California
TOTAL TIME: Prep/Total Time: 25 min. YIELD:8 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 egg yolk, beaten
  • 1/2 pound lean ground beef
  • 2 tablespoons grated onion
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • Dash pepper
  • 6 slices bread
  • 24 cubes cheddar cheese (1/2-inch cubes)

Directions

  • 1. In a bowl, combine egg yolk, ground beef, onion, salt and pepper. Shape mixture by teaspoonfuls into 24 balls. Remove crusts from bread; roll flat and cut into 1-1/2-in. rounds. Place meatballs on bread rounds; make a depression in each ball and fill with a cube of cheese, making sure bread is covered with meat mixture.
