Miniburgers with bacon, blue cheese and asparagus

These are mini, bitesize burgers with asparagus, bacon and blue cheese. Very yummy and easy to make. The bread you can make in advance and it also freezes very well. So why just not make a bunch, so that you’ll only have to take them out, defrost them and you’re ready to go.

  • 500g flour
  • 240ml milk at room temperature

  • 3 soupspoons sugar
  • 1 soupspoon dry yeast
  • ground mixed meat (pork and beef)
  • bacon strips
  • blue cheese
  • asparagus
  • olive oil
  • salt&pepper


  1. add sugar and yeast to the milk and let it sit four a couple of minutes, mix flour, butter, egg and salt in a bowl, add the milk and mix to a dough;
  2. cover and let it rise for 1 hour, after that kneed well and divide into 12 pieces, form little balls, flatten them down to 1cm of height and let it rise for another 45 minutes;
  3. bake at 175 °C for 15 minutes and let them cool on a rack;
  4. cook the strips of bacon, take them out of the pan, form the small burgers with the seasoned ground meat and cook them in that same pan (no need to waste that tasty bacon fat);
