Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F (230 degrees C).

  • Toss tots with oil on a 10x15-inch baking pan, then spread into a single layer.

  • Bake in the preheated oven, turning once halfway through, until browned and crisp, 15 to 18 minutes.

  • Meanwhile, put ground beef on a sheet of waxed paper. Top with another sheet and press beef into a 4x6-inch rectangle. Remove top sheet. Sprinkle beef with salt and pepper, then cut into sixteen 1x1 1/2-inch rectangles.

  • Break each cheese slice into quarters; fold quarters over to make 16 pieces of double-layered cheese.

  • Cook beef in a large skillet over medium heat until browned on one side, about 3 minutes. Turn burgers over, top with cheese; cook, covered, until beef is no longer pink in centers and cheese has melted, about 3 minutes.

  • Top 1 tot with a cheeseburger, ketchup, mustard, pickle, and another tot; spear stack with a toothpick. Repeat with remaining ingredients.

Cook's Note:

Peanut oil also works in this.

Just wondering if pre-made frozen meatballs could be halved and used instead of the hamburger. Read More
