I am in love with Parker House Rolls. They make me swoon. Buttery and sugary. Does anyone not like them?
Turns out they are a perfect match for a salty mini- burger topped with blue cheese sauce. Which is a good thing because sometimes those mini-burger buns are hard to find.
Mini-burgers are great for serving guests, especially a crowd of kids. But I think adults like them as much as kids do.
What’s great about mini burgers is you can pack a whole lot of flavor in a little package. A kid-friendly treat is instantly grown-upified by adding sun-dried tomatoes and blue cheese to the burger sauce.
And if you are watching your calories, you might want to just have one. Or maybe two. They are really small after all.
