Everybody loves a cheeseburger but why not change it up a little and make it bite sized. These mini Bacon Cheeseburger Cups are fun and delicious and can be served as a new twist on dinner or a fabulous party food. Either way, they’re sure to be a hit!
Bite sized food is so much fun, isn’t it? I love taking a traditional recipe and making it into a party food or just switching things up for dinner. The great thing about it is that you can take practically any food and make it mini.
My kids love bite sized foods too so I decided to try out a new idea on them (kids make great test subjects!). I had come across some wonton wrappers in the fridge when inspiration hit. Why not take regular cheeseburgers and make bacon cheeseburger bites instead. Not only do they make a fun meal, they’re pretty easy to make, too.
Bacon Cheeseburger Cups
The first thing you’ll do is brown your ground beef. While it’s cooking, overlap two wonton wrappers and place them in muffin tins.
Fill the wonton wrappers with ground beef.
Kids love ketchup so add a little to taste.
Add some shredded cheddar.
After baking for 10 minutes, add some bacon and a pickle.
Now top them with shredded lettuce and diced tomatoes.
I like to serve these bacon cheeseburger bites with fries and a salad. I’ve found that one or two is plenty to fill up my girls. They actually loved these so much that they started offering advice as to what we could add to the cups next time (I’m not so sure about chocolate cups for dinner)!
We thought these were a lot more fun than your everyday cheeseburger.
I love that you can do so much with these wonton wrappers and I’m already planning another bite-sized meal. I’m also going to add these to my list of appetizer recipes so I can whip up a batch for my next get-together!
