I have nothing against a good chip and dip combo, but during party season I hate having my only options at a potluck of mexican layer dip, french onion dip, queso, salsa……. You get the picture.   The last party we through was for my Husbands launch party of his beer from Callsign Brewing.  We had a house full of hungry beer drinkers!  I had to offer more than a few chips and cold veggies to dip.

 What goes better with a cold mug of beer than a good cheese burger? Hamburger & Fries Appetizers were my answer! Everything you love about the full size in one tasty bite!

Now on to the hamburger!  So super easy.  They are frozen cocktail meatballs.  So often these meatballs get the slow cooker treatment simmering in all sorts of yummy ingredients that we never get the taste of the meatball on its own.  Who knew that they tasted so good on their own?

Well now we do!  These Hamburger & Fries Appetizers are amazing bites of your favorite cheeseburger and french fries.

I only have one tip for you outside of the directions.  I have made these twice the first time I baked them for 15 min and the cheese was gooey. {which is just about everyone’s favorite way}  The second time I made them I baked for 20 min.  This cooked the cheese a little harder but it also helped keep the meatball in when biting into it.

What is your favorite non-dip appetizer?
