These bite-sized burgers will be a hit with the kids & company! This delicious mini burger sits upon a nice slice of potato - grilled to a crisp (yet soft on the inside) - with a little ketchup and cheese to top it off!

Everyone I know loves french fries. If my son and I get fast food, I like to steal a few of his fries and put them on my burger (in between the buns). Yes, that may sound weird! But, it's really good! You eat fries with your burger - why not put your favorite things all together into something bite-sized and delicious! And, although potatoes have carbs in them, I still think this is healthier than eating a real bun with your burger.  Lastly, my son (who hates burgers) absolutely loved these. Who knew you could make things bite-sized and fun and suddenly kids love them!

Step 1: Prepare the Burgers & Potato Slices

  • Potatoes (peeled) - at least one per person you anticipate to be feeding
  • Hamburger Meat
  • Cheese Slices
  • Ketchup
  • Salt & any other seasonings you plan to use on your potato slices & burgers
Peel the potatoes & cut slices about 1/2 an inch thick. I made a couple of my slices into hearts, to be weird! :) Do whatever you like! Once you have enough sliced up, then you'll need to cook these a little bit to soften them. But, you need to be careful not to overcook them. I personally put them into the microwave covered (with a tablespoon of water) for a minute. Then, I mixed them around and did one more minute in the microwave. They were soft, but not falling apart. After that, I wanted to keep things low-fat so I sprayed them with non-stick cooking oil and doused them with salt and pepper and some garlic.

Then, prepare the little mini burger patties. I used a round cookie cutter to cut and form small round burger patties. Try to keep the thickness and size as consistent as possible. Mine were a bit more than a half an inch thick.

Grab your cheese slices and ketchup and go out to your grill.

Step 2: Grill the Burgers & Potato Slices

Heat up your grill and carefully put these little burgers onto the rack (try not to let them fall through - I lost one baby burger). Next, carefully place your potato slices on the grill as well. It's very important to get your potato slices nice and crispy - but hopefully not burnt. Once you're happy with everything, take them off the grill. If you can manage it, place your mini cheese slices on the burgers while on the grill & close the cover briefly to melt the cheese.

To assemble, just place your potato patty first, then add some ketchup, the burger and the cheese on top! Delicious!!!

    Indeed, but your link really is inspiring, too. My health issues all but disappeared when I left all the crap out and substituted it with fruit. No more cravings after only 3 days, too.

    Hollllyyyy...Congratulations :)). I wonder ( all the time) why this was not first :(.
    But I am glad you won:)

    This is so cool, great idea, looks soooo good

    Great idea... I think I'll try it with grilled squash to lower the carb count!

    Awesome idea with the squash - hmm ... sounds like nearly any hearty vegetable could stand in for a bun. Perhaps a mild eggplant or another root vegetable?

    I agree. I would also love it with sweet potato slices!

    Nice - sounds good!

    This looks amazing!!! What a great idea!
