These mini-burgers make fun and tasty appetizers. Although we enjoyed them on Parker House rolls, they would also be tasty on small dinner rolls or sweet Hawaiian bread rolls.
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1 pound ground sirloin
3 tablespoons finely chopped shallots
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
2 teaspoons butter, softened
8 (1-ounce) Parker House rolls
16 dill pickle chips
How to Make It
Prepare grill to medium-high heat.
Combine 1/2 teaspoon salt, pepper, and sirloin. Divide meat mixture into 8 equal portions, shaping each into a 1/4-inch-thick patty. Lightly coat both sides of patties with cooking spray. Place patties on grill rack; grill for 3 minutes on each side or until done.
Combine shallots, Worcestershire sauce, mustard, and butter in a small bowl, stirring well. Cut rolls in half horizontally. Spread shallot mixture evenly over cut sides of rolls. Layer 1 patty and 2 pickle chips on bottom half of each roll; top with top halves of rolls.

FANTASTIC!!! i am not a fan of cooking/being in the kitchen so always look for quick and super easy recipes. this one was a snap to whip up, delicious, and easy to clean up after. truth be told: even if it were more work - i'd make again and again, with out a doubt! SO SO SO tasty!
I didn't have high hopes for a hamburger that had only salt and pepper...and our grill was broken so I had to pan fry. But the sauce/relish was very good and made this a hit appetizer. We served the burgers on Hawaiian bread. And they went well with the Burgundy at our wine tasting...minus the pickles.
These were great! Made them exact to the recipe, except used Hawaiian rolls since I can't find any others small enough. Do you have to make Parker House rolls from scratch? If so, I might try them on a weekend when I have more time. Otherwise, I loved these as I made them. They bring about a more sophisticated flavor that's conducive for a casual adult get-together.
i made this on monday 12/28/09 and i was iffy about only the salt and pepper only in the ground beef so i minced fresh garlic it was 2 cloves and i did the rest of the recipe, they were super yummy and it was a dinner for me , with a fresh salad, it was yummy i will be making these again andthis will be going in the all time faves files!
