Mini Burgers on a Stick

What’s on these deconstructed mini burgers, you ask? You get all the ingredients you’d expect from a bacon cheeseburger, they’re just smaller, and on a stick!

  • Meatballs (instead of a burger patty)
  • Cheese
  • Lettuce
  • Tomatoes
  • Pickles
  • Bacon
  • Bread (for the buns)

You can switch up the ingredients a bit to make them just how you like. Skip the bacon, use a different kind of cheese, use turkey meatballs instead of beef, and add a side of mustard/ketchup/BBQ sauce/Burger Sauce for dipping. Have fun and go wild!

How to Make Cheeseburger Shish Kebabs

The only prep you need to do for this shish kebab recipe is warm up the pre-made meatballs (or you can make your own, here is a great recipe!), fry the bacon, and chop up the ingredients. The toughest part is being careful not to break the cheese when putting it on the skewer…so yeah, needless to say, these are super simple. My kind of recipe!

Once your ingredients are prepared, start assembling your mini cheeseburgers! You can put everything on in the order of a regular burger, or just forget the rules and make them how you want. The kids will have fun with that part!
