Bacon Cheeseburger Bites

Something for when you are craving a drive-thru run for a Bacon Double Cheeseburger (that would be Doo-bell Chez-bear-gare if you're in France.) They seriously taste like the real deal.

Shelly's Bacon Cheeseburger Bites

1/2 Yellow Onion, diced
2 Green Onions, diced
2 cloves Garlic, diced
5 Eggs
1/2 cup Shredded Cheddar Cheese
1/4 cup Bruschetta Sauce, drained (I used Trader Joe's but Contadina or Buitoni make one too)
a few twists of Black Pepper
1/2 cup Crumbled Browned Ground Beef
4 slices Cooked Bacon, crumbled

Cook bacon and crumble. Set aside. Brown ground beef, drain any fats. Set aside. Saute onions till golden. Add garlic and saute 1 minute more. Set aside to cool. Mix all ingredients together. Be sure meat & onions have cooled slightly before adding eggs. Spoon into lightly greased mini muffin tins. Bake for 30 minutes at 350. Makes 24.

These are a perfect weight loss surgery friendly appetizer or on-the-go breakfast. I served them for dinner with a version of my Italian Bean Salad (I added some leftover grilled zucchini) but they would be especially burger joint-ish served with a Green Salad with Thousand Island Dressing.

It's also a very kid friendly meal. These beat the Unhappy Meal hands down.

They heat up very well. I keep them in the fridge for up to three days. Reheat in the toaster oven or regular oven. They freeze well just defrost in the fridge then heat up. They won't be around that long though trust me.
