I found this recipe in a Pillsbury Appetizer Cookbook. It is a great addition to casual get-togethers. Kids and adults really enjoy the tiny bites of burger.

I made these for my Super Bowl party and they turned out great! I used extra lean ground beef (because I didn't want a lot of grease) and only 2T of dried onion flakes. I was wondering how hard it was going to be to split the little buns in half, but they pulled apart so easily! I served these with small bowls of ketchup and mustard for dipping and my guests seemed to like the mustard best. Will definitely make these again in the future. Thanks sbsbea!

Made this for the super bowl and really liked them. Used hot dog buns cut into thirds and also 93% ground sirloin. Next time will add more onion and more salt and pepper. Made a double batch and we ate them all!
