It’s Monday, you’re ‘back on the grind,’ but APWU made Gourmet Cheeseburger Bites and at this tiny size you can have five… Go girl, get those cheeseburgers.

APWU Gourmet Cheeseburger Bites


  • 1 lb ground beef (we used grass fed 85/15)
  • 2 tbsp mayonnaise
  • 1 tbsp Woodstock Relish
  • 1 tsp mustard
  • 3 tbsp Sir Kensington’s Ketchup
  • 2 tbsp minced onion
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 egg
  • 2/3 cup Panko bread crumbs
  • 5 oz Cooper Sharp American cheese cubed (or cheese of choice)
  • pickled jalapeños for garnish


Preheat your oven to 400 degrees and raise your oven rack to be closer to the heating elements. Cut cheese into cubes approximately 1-inch square. Set aside. Add all ingredients to a large mixing bowl and mix with your hands until thoroughly combined. Make a sample meatball and microwave to taste for seasoning. Form the meatball mixture around the cheese cube and roll until round. Arrange on a baking sheet and bake for approximately 17-20 minutes. Serve skewered on toothpicks with ketchup to dip, on a tomato slice, or a slider bun. Garnish with minced pickled jalapeños. Enjoy!
