Here is a recipe from Lulu Powers Food to Flowers Burger Bites with Lulus Special Sauce Makes 30 to 35
For the Burgers 1 pound ground beef 3 tablespoons ketchup 3 tablespoons barbecue sauce 1 teaspoon Lindberg-Snider Porterhouse and Roast Seasoning 2 teaspoons ground cumin 1 teaspoon ground black pepper 1 loaf sliced potato bread For the Sauce 1 cup mayonnaise 2 teaspoons yellow mustard 2 tablespoons ketchup 1 tablespoon barbecue sauce 2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce 2 teaspoons Tabasco sauce 2 tablespoons sweet pickle relish 2 teaspoons prepared horseradish 1 tablespoon freshly squeezed lemon juice 2 teaspoons sugar 1 teaspoon Lawry's Seasoned Salt 1/4 cup chopped cornichons 2 tablespoons chopped peperoncini 4 garlic cloves 1/2 teaspoon ground white pepper 1/4 cup chopped scallion, both white and green parts (optional)
In a large bowl, mix the ground beef, ketchup, barbecue sauce, porterhouse seasoning, cumin, and pepper together until well incorporated. Shape the mixture into 1 1/2-inch patties.
Roll out the bread with a rolling pin. Using a 1-inch cookie cutter, cut 4 rounds out of each slice of bread and set aside.
Combine all the sauce ingredients in the bowl of a food processor and pulse until smooth.
In a sauté pan over medium-high heat, sear the patties for 1 to 2 minutes on each side for medium-rare, or until done to your liking.
Serve the burgers between 2 potato bread rounds, with a dollop of sauce on each patty.
