Hamburger Cupcakes

Yes, I know the title doesn’t sound so great, but that is pretty much what they are!

A few weeks back Dillon asked me if I could make meatloaf cupcakes.  I have been mulling that over and have a pretty fair idea of how I will do it…. so stay tuned for that one lol. While that was on my mind, I came across an idea for hamburger cupcakes somewhere and decided that was what I was making first.

Here are the ingredients I used to make these.

I started off by browning the ground beef in the microwave on high with the onions and garlic.  It took about 5 minutes and then I drained it.

Next I added the ketchup.

Mixed it all up and set it aside until I was done the next step.

I greased a 12 cup  muffin tin with cooking spray, buttered the hamburger buns and pressed each half into one of the muffin tin cups, making a “shell” with them, then put them in the oven to lightly toast them for about 5 minutes.

I spread the beef mixture evenly between the 12 “shells.”

Next I put a slice of pickle on each one.

I added strips of precooked bacon to most of them.

And then placed a square of cheese on each one.

I baked them at 375 degrees for 15 minutes and served.
