Small Hamburgers Recipe-16328

Comments: 0


Here is an idea that came from one of the finest catering services in the country, Yours Truly, in Portland, Oregon. Prepare small hamburgers and season well. Cook to taste and pop into buttered hot buns, along with a thin slice of onion and a brush of mustard. Small hamburger buns can be ordered from good bakeries throughout the country. This hors d’oeuvre is invariably a hit.


  • 1 pound ground chuck or round with 25 percent fat
  • 3 tablespoons grated onion
  • 3 tablespoons heavy cream
  • ¼ teaspoon Tabasco
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon freshly ground pepper


Blend the ingredients well and form into small patties. Grill or sauté in butter. You should get 8 or even 9 patties to a pound, depending upon the size buns you choose.
