1 .  Insert plates on grill side . Preheat the Cuisinart® Griddler® Compact to High.

2 .  Put the meat, onion, salt and pepper into a medium bowl.  Mix gently with hands, being sure not to over-mix. Divide the meat into 6 individual rounds (about ¾ ounce each).  Form into patties, about 2 inches in diameter.

3 .  Once the grill has preheated, arrange the mini burgers on the bottom grill. Close, applying light pressure to handle for about 10 seconds . Grill for about one minute. Remove the burgers and place each in a bun.

4 .  Serve immediately.

Note: For toasted buns, halve and grill in the closed position for about 30 to 45 seconds to desired doneness. Remove and reserve, then grill burgers.
