Slider Secrets

Sliders have become a favorite mini burger appetizer, but why keep those delicious Sliders as just an appetizer-they deserve to be come the star of your next cook out!

Cooking The Perfect Slider;

  • Add your seasonings to cold ground beef.  Keep it simple with a generous amount of salt & pepper.  Want more flavor?  The opportunities are endless a few ideas; chopped garlic, a couple dashes of Worcester Sauce, Cracked Pepper Blend, BBQ seasoning, Ranch Seasoning, sautéed onions…
  • Make your sliders (6 per pound) by forming into small patties.  Keep the burgers perfect by not messing with them too much and leave an indention with a spoon in the center-this helps the patty hold it’s shape.  
  • Before you cook your sliders, grill your slider buns.  Brush a little butter on the buns and give a quick grill-now were talking flavor!
  • Cook your patties on med-high for about 3-4 minutes per side.  Don’t keep flipping and definitely don’t press down with your spatula.  

Slider Bar Topping Ideas; cheese, pickles, tomatoes, lettuce, steak sauce, ketchup, mustard, fried onions, sautéed mushrooms, crispy bacon…

Slider Party;  Anyone heard of a slider party?  Who knew it could be so much fun!  Friends of ours hosted and asked everyone to bring 12 sliders and a six-pack beer pairing to go with it.  Place a toothpick in each half of your slider and then cut in half for sharing.  We all raved about a favorite component of each like; sesame seed buns, french fried onion toppings, perfectly cooked, jalapeño sauce, a whiskey bbq sauce, a pickle topping-yum, yum!  Of course the beer pairing was a big hit as well!  Good food, good beer and great friends-plan your slider party today!
