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.

How to Make It

Step 1

Prepare grill to medium-high heat.

Step 2

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.

Step 3

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.

I made these normal-size and grilled them on our Traeger and added a slice of cheese.  The family devoured them.  Sometimes simple is best.

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.

This relish is so good. Made it and served with regular burgers with swiss. Nice change from the same ol' burger.

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.

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!

This has become a regular rotation recipe in our house. They're great and easy. We like to use Hawaiian rolls, because they're just the right size.
