Mini Burger Potato Bites

(originally made 2/2011)

This a dish that was inspired by a recipe I saw on TOH- Mini Burger Potato Bites

Loved the idea of serving sliders on waffle fries, but also knew that the guys would not eat the onions or sauce.    Wish I could have done the burgers on the grill, but had to settle for the grill pan since our Weber is under about 4 feet of snow   LOL    I have a square hamburger press and it made forming the sliders super easy.    I split the pound of meat into 4 balls, pressed them out and then sectioned each into 4 burgers.   I topped ours with sliced american (each slice gave 4 squares) and some crispy bacon.   There was extra waffle fries, so Tim ate his with ketchup and another fry on top.    :)
