Mini cheeseburger skewers! Gluten free, grain free, and super simple to make.


  • 2 lbs of ground beef (preferably grass fed)*
  • 1/4 cup very finely diced onion
  • 1 + 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder 
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper

For the toppings

  • 6 slices of American cheese, each cut into 4 small squares (24 slices total)
  • 24 pickle chips
  • Iceberg, Romain, or Butter lettuce, torn into 24 small pieces
  • Burger sauce (I use this or this one)


  1. Preheat oven to 400°F and line a large baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. In a large bowl, mix together the ground beef, onion, and all of the seasonings until well mixed.
  3. Form the mixture into 24 burger patties, rolling each patty into a smooth ball and then flatten each one out into a patty. Bake for 12-15 minutes, until cooked to your liking. 
  4. Meanwhile, prep your toppings. Add a small square of cheese to each burger as soon as they are out of the oven to allow the cheese to melt. 
  5. Just before serving, add your pickle, lettuce, and sauce, then stick a skewer through the center. Serve and enjoy!


*If you sub with ground chicken or turkey, your mixture will need some oil to replace the fat to avoid dry burgers.
