Sliders fro Half Time
At the Pampered Chef Party I just had, we were taught how to make these "sliders" for game day. It was so fun and really easy!! I know they were good because this platter that was overflowing with sliders went downstairs and disappeared during football viewing.
Recipe for Sliders:
1 medium onion (about 1 cup finely chopped)
¼ cup finely chopped fresh parsley
1½ lb 90% lean ground beef
2 garlic cloves, pressed
1 tsp salt
6 slices American cheese
8 hot dog buns
24 hamburger dill pickle slices
Preheat oven to 450°F. Finely chop onion and parsley using Food Chopper. Combine beef,
onion, parsley, garlic pressed with Garlic Press and salt in Classic Batter Bowl; mix well using
Small Mix ‘N Scraper®. Press beef mixture evenly over bottom of Large Bar Pan. Bake 10-12
minutes or until beef is no longer pink.
Meanwhile, on Cutting Board, cut cheese into quarters; set aside. Slice buns apart neatly at
seams using Utility Knife (do not separate tops from bottoms). Trim about ¼ in. from each
bun end to square off (discard trimmings). Cut buns into thirds for a total of 24 square mini
buns; set aside.
Remove bar pan from oven. Pour off juices, if necessary, and place on Stackable Cooling Rack.
Cut beef mixture into 24 squares using Pizza Cutter. Top each burger with one pickle and one
piece of cheese. Place one bun top onto each burger; top with one bun bottom. Cover bar pan
with aluminum foil and bake 3-5 minutes or until cheese is melted and buns are warm.
To serve, place one burger with bun top onto one bun bottom using Mini-Serving Spatula.
Repeat with remaining burgers and bun bottoms. Serve immediately.
