Looking for savory appetizers made using Original Bisquick® mix? Enjoy these cheesy beef burgers, bacon and lettuce topped with cherry tomatoes and served with ketchup.
Updated Feb 15, 2011

Ingredients

  • 7 slices bacon
  • 28 fancy toothpicks
  • 28 cherry tomatoes
  • 3 leaves romaine lettuce, cut into 28 (1 1/2-inch) pieces
  • 1/2 cup Original Bisquick™ mix
  • 1 lb ground beef
  • 1 egg
  • 1/4 cup mayonnaise
  • 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 2 oz Cheddar cheese, cut into 1/4-inch cubes (about 1/2 cup)

Steps

  • 1
    In 10-inch nonstick skillet, cook bacon over medium heat, turning often, until browned but not overly crisp. Drain on paper towels. Discard all but 1 tablespoon drippings. Cut each bacon slice into 4 pieces.
  • 2
    On each toothpick, thread 1 tomato half, 1 bacon piece and 1 lettuce piece; set aside.
  • 3
    In large bowl, mix remaining ingredients except cheese. Fold in cheese. Shape tablespoonfuls of mixture into meatballs; flatten slightly to resemble hamburgers.
  • 4
    In same skillet, heat bacon drippings over medium-high heat. Cook burgers in drippings 2 to 3 minutes on each side or until meat is no longer pink. Insert 1 toothpick in each burger; serve immediately.

Tips from the Betty Crocker Kitchens

  • tip 1
    Spice up these mini cheeseburgers by using pepper Jack cheese instead of Cheddar and hot pepper sauce instead of Worcestershire sauce.
  • tip 2
    For traditional flavor, serve these burgers with ketchup and mustard for dipping.
