Cheesy Mini-Burgers

In the busy dinner routines.. its always hard to find what the kids might like, and what is cheap. And here is one of those things that the kids loved. They ate all of it. Some ate the rice by itself and the Burgers last, one ate the burgers first and the rice last, and Only one ate the burgers cut up and mixed with everything. But they ate it, No Fuss!!

Prep Time: 5 min
Total Time: 25 min
Makes: 4 servings

Mixing by hand is Gross! But sometimes the best way to mix things!

What You Need

1 lb. lean ground beef
1 cup KRAFT Shredded Cheddar Cheese, divided
1/2 cup ketchup, divided
1/2 tsp. garlic powder
2-2/3 cups hot cooked instant white rice
I love when you can put foil down, and there is no messy clean up!!
Make It

PREHEAT oven to 400°F. Mix meat, 2/3 cup of cheese, 1/4 cup of the ketchup and garlic powder. Shape into 12 balls. Place on foil-covered baking sheet sprayed with cooking spray.
FLATTEN each ball into patty, about 1/2-inch thick. Bake 15 min. or until cooked through; drain.
SPREAD remaining ketchup on each patty; sprinkle with remaining cheese. Bake an additional 5 min. or until cheese melts. Serve over rice.
