Ingredients

  • 1/4 pound ground beef
  • 3 slices process American cheese
  • 4 slices white bread (heels of loaf recommended)
  • 2 tablespoons Thousand Island salad dressing
  • 2 pearl onions, thinly sliced
  • 4 baby dill pickles, thinly sliced
  • 3 cherry tomatoes, thinly sliced

Directions

Shape beef into 1-in. patties. Place on a microwave-safe plate lined with microwave-safe paper towels. Cover with another paper towel; microwave on high for 1 minute or until meat is no longer pink. Cut each slice of cheese into fourths; set aside.
Using a 1-in. round cookie cutter, cut out six circles from each slice of bread. Spread half of the bread circles with dressing. Layer with burgers, cheese, onions, pickles and tomatoes. Top with remaining bread circles; secure with toothpicks. Serve immediately. Yield: 1 dozen.
