Mini Burger Bites with Smokin' Chipotle Ketchup

They may be small, but these hearty little patties 
cook up quick and pack a cheesy flavour punch. 

Your whole family will love the great saucy taste.

Mini Burger Bites


  • 2 lb. lean ground beef 
  • 2 Tbsp. ketchup
  • 3 Tbsp. brown sugar
  • 1 Tbsp. ground black pepper 
  • 2 Tbsp. kosher salt
  • 1 clove garlic, finely minced
  • 1 green onion, finely sliced
  • 1 tsp. onion powder
  • 1/2 cup shredded mozzarella and cheddar cheese

Chipotle Ketchup

Smokn' Chipotle Ketchup

  • 1 cup ketchup
  • 1 Tbsp. pureed chipotle chilies


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. In a medium bowl, mix beef, ketchup, brown sugar, pepper salt, garlic, green onion and onion powder together. Work together with your hands, insuring that all ingredients are incorporated.
  3. Form meat into balls, a bit smaller than a golf ball.
  4. Flatten with your hands to create a burger shape.
  5. Preheat your grill pan or barbecue to a high heat. Grill burgers until seared and grill marks appear, about 1 minute per side and transfer to a baking sheet.
  6. Finish cooking through in the oven about 5-10 minutes, or until cooked through and no longer pink in the middle. Top with grated cheese and continue cooking until cheese melts.
  7. In a small bowl mix together ketchup and chipotle chilies. Reserve until ready to serve.
  8. Place each burger on a mini hamburger bun. Top with Chipotle Ketchup.

Happy Cooking
