Meatball Sandwiches on a Stick is a great appetizer for a crowd. A mini burger while you wait for the main course!
My other half really loves to cook, and I’m spoiled because he’s really good at it. He makes a bacon burger so delicious it doesn’t need a bun.
There’s nothing fancy about the burger, in fact it’s about as simple as it gets, and I think that’s why they’re so well received.
I tried for years to mix a burger recipe worth bragging about. I added cheeses, spices and I even tried adding jalapeños, but I could never get it quite right.
Sometimes I can totally throw something together and it’s awesome, but there are times my kitchen adventures aren’t so effortless.
One fine day, my other half walks in the back door after grilling up some burgers and handed me a plate full of beautiful, juicy burgers with beautiful grill marks. One bite and I was in burger heaven.
I was impressed! Not even mad! So I guess he’s the burger master in the family.
I like to go low carb and wrap them in iceberg lettuce instead of a bun.
Parties with friends often turn into potlucks because most of our friends love to cook and usually want to bring something delicious when we gather at our house. Since this meatball recipe (very close to the homemade hamburger recipe) is so well liked, it’s nice to work these in as an appetizer when burgers aren’t going to be the main course.
A meatball sandwich on a stick, at least the way I make them, is a two bite ordeal. Using the meatball to represent the bun is a glorious idea and the burger toppings in the middle are a bonus.
I’d love to try these with beer dip spread in the center, wouldn’t you?
Swap out the lettuce and tomato with your own favorites. Next time I’ll try wrapping mine in lettuce to represent my favorite way to eat a good burger.
