Mini Burger Bite Muffins



I don’t know HOW I didn’t try this sooner. I saw a similar recipe on Pinterest and just made a few changes to lighten it up a little.

One of these burger bites has 48 calories and SO MUCH FLAVOR. It’s insane.

People will often ask me what a serving size should be but that’s really hard to answer without knowing what else you’re eating.

To give you an idea, I might have 3 of these at dinner with a side salad and a carb source like a baked potato or homemade sweet potato fries.

OR I may have 2 of these for an afternoon snack. Or 5 of these at dinner if I’m not doing a carb on the side. Serving size is fluid and is different for everyone. Ultimately, I advise you to “listen to your hunger”. If you have 3 and feel like you’re still hungry, have another one. If you get through 2 but feel like you’ve had enough, that’s okay too.

You can really make so many variations of these by just adding different vegetables, cheeses and toppings.

I used bell pepper as my “bun” here but you could also serve these in lettuce wraps or *GASP* in an actual bun.

Oh and just a tip: I love using a silicone muffin pan for recipes like this because it makes clean up so easy and nothing sticks.
