Pretzel buns apparently make an ordinary burger seem that much fancier. Which got me thinking… we just came out with our own refrigerated pretzel dough a few months earlier, and we’re just starting BBQ/grilling season… so why not make our very own pretzel burger, Immaculate style? And that was exactly what I did!
These are super easy to assemble. Feel free to add you own “twist” to these mini pretzel sliders that would be a great appetizer to your summer grilling parties this season! Oh, and I decided to bake the patties instead of grilling them only because I didn’t have a grill to work with, and I’m happy to inform you that the baked patties were actually really juicy! Here’s to hoping that you’ll be serving up some of your own pretzel burgers this summer!
You Will Need:
- 1 can Immaculate Baking Co.™ refrigerated pretzel dough
- 1 lb ground beef
- Pepper and salt
- 4 slices of cheese singles of your choice
- If desired, add 1/3 cup onions, chopped
Here’s How to Get the Dough Rolling:
- Heat oven to 400⁰F. Grease cookie sheet. Unroll pretzel dough as one dough sheet. Cut the dough sheet in half and break apart the strips of dough. You’ll have a total of 16 strips. Twist the strips of dough into a pretzel as directed on the can.
- Add soda wash and sprinkle salt on each mini pretzel as directed on the can. Bake for 9-12 min. or until golden brown. Remove from cookie sheet.
- Mix pepper, salt and onions in ground beef. Shape beef mixture by tablespoonfuls into patties, and place on cookie sheet.
- Turn oven heat down to 350⁰F, and bake patties for 10-12 minutes. (I baked each side for about 5 min.)
- Remove pan from oven. Quarter each cheese singles into small cheese squares, and top each pattie with a cheese square.
- Put pan back in the oven for about 30 seconds or until the cheese melts. Slice open each mini pretzel and sandwich the cheesy beef pattie
Giving it a bit more punch: I grew up in a kitchen where we typically marinated our meat in soy sauce and wine before cooking it. So naturally I did the same thing with the patties, which added a lot more flavors! Give it a try!
