These little babies are good! Don't let their cute size fool you, they've got some bite! Instead of using the dinner rolls, I used some frozen bread dough cut into 12 pieces and rolled into balls and baked while the hamburgers were cooking. From Down Home with the Neelys.

We loved these little burgers. The grilled onions and mustard sauce add a goumet touch without a lot of extra work. I served these with lettuce and tomatoes as well.
These mini burgers were fun and very tastey!! Loved'em!! i didn't have a red onion so I used a regular yellow one, also didn't have potato dinner rolls, but did have whole wheat dinner rolls which worked out just fine. The mustard sauce was exceptional with a nice little bite. Just made half a recipe, we each ate two for supper and put two away for a snack. i will definately be making these again, we loved the grilled onion to which I added some chopped mushrooms, very good indeed!! Thanks for posting. July 10/09 made these again, this time added pico de gallo for a topping, very delish!!
