Serve this fun-filled beef appetizer at a party and watch the kids create art with these cheeseburgers.
pound lean ground beef
teaspoons instant minced onion
teaspoon yellow mustard
ounces American cheese, cut into 2-inch cubes (2 cups)
miniature sandwich buns, split
Cook beef in 10-inch skillet over medium-high heat about 8 minutes, stirring frequently, until brown; drain. Stir in ketchup, onion and mustard.
Spray 3 1/2- to 4-quart slow cooker with cooking spray. Spoon beef mixture into cooker. Top with cheese.
Cover and cook on low heat setting 3 to 4 hours or until mixture is hot and cheese is melted.
Serve beef mixture with buns. Beef mixture will hold on low heat setting up to 3 hours.
To add a little zip to these mini burgers, use Monterey Jack cheese with jalapeño peppers instead of American cheese.
For a kid's birthday party, spoon the meat mixture on small round bun halves. Let kids decorate their own open-face sandwiches with ketchup and mustard in squeeze containers. Set out bowls of shredded cheese, sliced pickles, cherry tomato halves and sliced olives so they can make silly faces.
