How to Make Cheesy Diamond Burgers that are Ridiculously Delicious

These Cheesy Diamond Burgers are so fun and ridiculously delicious! They’re great to whip up for a crowd or to just make a weeknight dinner extraordinary. This is the most requested recipe that I make from friends and family. Pair these mini burgers with a flight of beers and you are SET. If you aren’t a fan of spicy food, I recommend using a can of diced tomatoes.  Whether it’s game day, a holiday or a summer bbq, these cute and delish little mini diamond burgers fit perfectly in your fingers and will feed a large crowd or a small one.

What is not to love about ground beef, spices, onions, Ro-Tel and cheese? These sliders are totally customizable. If you aren’t in the mood for a burger, try another version! Sub in your favorite deli or sandwich meat and cheese. Use the same glaze and baking instructions and you’ve got a fantastic quick dish! This ground beef sliders recipe is the PERFECT party food. Bring these to your next party, no matter the theme or season, and they will be a hit!
