When I was brainstorming ideas for the savoury bottom tier of our afternoon beer, mini burgers immediately came to mind. Mini burgers are the tiny tea sandwiches of the burger world. Super simple, super tasty. This is barely a recipe – what really makes this burger is the sauce. Give it a try on your favourite burger recipe, you won’t regret it!
