meanwhile, combine meat and seasoning; form into sixteen 1-ounce mini burgers (about 2 tablespoons)
in a skillet, cook burgers, uncovered, over medium-high heat for about 5 minutes, turning burgers once halfway through cooking
top each potato with a burger, cheese quarter, and tomato slice
broil 4 - 5 inches from heat for 1 - 2 minutes or until cheese has melted
