Cheeseburger Bites (Gluten Free!)

Who doesn’t love a cheeseburger in cute bite-sized form? These Cheeseburger Bites are gluten free, fun, easy to eat, and please a crowd. They were so delicious that my husband begged me to make more after they had all disappeared.


Ingredients (makes 24 mini-meatballs)

-1lb ground beef

-1½ -2 T seasoning of your choice (I used s&p, garlic powder, onion powder, & cayenne)

-1 egg

-2 T almond flour

-6 slices Boar’s Head American cheese, cut into fourths

-24 thin jalapeño slices

-24 toothpicks

Sauces: ketchup, Garlic Mayo (homemade mayo + minced garlic), & Mac Sauce from @seriouseats : 1/2 cup homemade mayo, 1 T ketchup, 1 T yellow mustard, 4 slices kosher dill pickle (chopped), 1/4 tsp garlic powder, 1/4 tsp paprika, pinch of cayenne)


Combine ground beef, seasoning, egg, and almond flour in a large bowl (I used my hands 😜). Chill mixture for fifteen minutes, and preheat oven to 375°. Roll into 24 mini-meatballs and place on baking sheets lined with parchment paper. I used a melon baller for this part to make each meatball the same size. Bake for 20 minutes. When meatballs have about three minutes left, take them out and add cheese slices to each meatball with a toothpick. Bake for about three minutes or until cheese melts. Add jalapeño slices to the toothpicks, and serve with sauces.
