How to make bacon cheeseburger cupcakes

Print this recipe
These bacon cheeseburger cupcakes are so cute they're just right for a kid's birthday party or any party in which you need a delicious appetizer. And although they may look like you spent hours sweating over a stove, they come together very quickly and easily. The recipe that follows uses wonton wrappers that bake up crisp, giving bacon cheeseburgers the bit of texture they need.
These cupcakes are so easy because you don't have to form burger patties. Just fry ground beef with aromatics such as onion and garlic, and pile the mixture into wonton wrappers and cover with cheese. When they come out of the oven, sprinkle them with a bit of crumbled bacon and you (and your appetizer) are both ready for the party!

Top all beef in the wonton wrappers with a tablespoon or so of cheddar cheese.
Broil for 3 mins or until cheese is melted and wonton wrappers are crispy.
