Fritas (Mini Cuban Burgers)

Recipe from: Ingrid Hoffman
Servings: 6

1 ½ cup dried bread crumbs
¼ cup plus 2 tablespoons whole milk
1 large yellow onion, grated on the large-hole side of a box grater
1 large egg, lightly beaten
2 pounds lean ground beef
2 tablespoons fresh lime juice, from about 1 lime
3 tablespoons ketchup, plus extra for serving
3 garlic cloves, finely minced
1 tablespoons salt
¾ teaspoons paprika
1 tablespoons olive oil
12 mini hamburger rolls or Cuban rolls

Place the bread crumbs in a large bowl. Cover with milk and soak for 2 minutes. Add the onion, the beaten egg, ground beef, lime juice, ketchup, garlic powder, salt, and paprika and work the ingredients together with your hands or a wooden spoon just until combined. Form the mixture into 12 small 1-inch thick patties and refrigerate them for at least 45 minutes or up to 8 hours . Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add about ½ of the burgers and brown them on each side, flipping with spatula, 5 to 7 minutes. Set the fritas on the rolls and cook the remaining burgers. Serve with generous amounts of ketchup.
