Party Cheeseburgers

These little beauties showed up on my Facebook feed from the awesome blog Kevin and Amanda, and if you have never seen their site, head on over.  They have some delicious recipes and  great travel photos as well as some cute doggies.  We are all cheeseburger fans around here and this recipe was a HUGE hit!  I have made it three times already and I can guarantee that it is going in the regular rotation.  Here is the link to the original recipe and my version is below.  The only major change I made was how much of the filling to use.  When I made it the first time, I had a large amount of the beef filling and almost couldn’t get it all on the buns, so the next time I just used half the filling and saved the other half for later.  Worked perfectly!

Party Cheeseburgers

For the burgers:

1 lb. lean ground beef

1 tsp. salt

1 tsp. black pepper

1 tsp. cumin

1 tsp. mustard powder

1/2 tsp. smoked paprika

1 cup diced onion

1 tsp. dried minced garlic

10 oz. can tomatoes with green chiles, drained

6 slices of your favorite cheese (I have used mozzarella and provolone.)

12 dinner rolls (I used 1 package of Hawaiian rolls.)

In a large skillet over medium heat, cook the ground beef with the salt, pepper, cumin, mustard powder, and paprika.  Add the onion and minced garlic.  Cook the mixture until there is no pink left in the meat and the onion is soft.  Stir in the drained tomatoes until well combined.

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and coat a 13×9” baking dish with non-stick spray.  Cut the rolls in half book-form and place the bottom half of the rolls into the baking dish.  Top with half of the beef mixture and the 6 cheese slices.  You can freeze the leftover meat mixture if you are not going to use it soon.  Place the top of the rolls over the cheese and cut through the rolls making little sandwiches.

2 tbsp. brown sugar

Combine all of these ingredients in a small saucepan over medium heat until the butter is melted and all of the ingredients are well combined.  Pour over the buns and bake for 25 minutes.
