These bite-sized beef burgers are perfect for children’s birthday parties. Or call them “sliders” and serve as a hip appetizer at your next adult gathering. The patties in this recipe stay lovely, lean and moist by oven-baking instead of grilling or broiling. Serve with your favourite burger toppings.
¼ cup (50 mL) dry bread crumbs
¼ cup (50 mL) barbecue sauce
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 lb (500 g) Lean Ground Beef Sirloin*
Salt and pepper
12 dinner rolls
Whisk egg with 1 tbsp (15mL) water in bowl. Stir in bread crumbs, barbecue sauce and garlic. Using fork, mix in beef, and salt and pepper as desired.
Shape beef mixture lightly into twelve 1/2-inch (1cm) thick patties. Place on parchment-paper lined baking sheet.
Cook burgers in 375°F (190°C) oven until digital thermometer inserted sideways into centre of several patties reads 160°F (71°C), about 25 minutes.
