Sliders Two Ways


Hello All!      Welcome back to Food~Flavor~Fun!

A place to find and share some great food ideas that are loaded with flavor to be prepared by you and served to family and friends to bring a whole lot of fun and pure joy into our lives.  ‘Cause lets face it, there are few pleasures greater than a fantastic meal!

Monday’s are about starters.  This one makes a heck of a meal, if you’d prefer.  Baby burgers, called sliders.  Give this one a try by itself or combine it with a few other items from the starters category and make a meal of it.  I’ve been known to do this quite often.  Here we go….

Sliders Two Ways

What you’ll need for the sliders

  • 1/2 pound sirloin
  • 4 small rolls, about 2 inches round
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • a sprinkle of Tex-Joy Steak Seasoning

For the Chipotle Bacon Topping

  • 2 tablespoons mayonnaise
  • 1 tablespoon chipotle pepper
  • 1/2 ounce shredded cheddar cheese
  • 4 strips cooked smoked bacon
  • caramelized onions

Mix the chipotle pepper and mayonnaise together.  Heat a grill pan or cast iron skillet over medium heat.  Season the sirloin with salt, pepper and Tex-Joy and lightly form into 4 patties.  Add the burgers and cook for 3 minutes on the first side, then flip.  Top each patty with cheddar cheese and continue cooking until the patties are firm and the cheese starts to melt.  Toast the rolls in the pan and spread some of the mayo mixture.  Top burgers with bacon and caramelized onions.

For the Mushroon and Blue Cheese Topping:

  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 1/2 cups sliced mushrooms
  • 2 tablespoons steak sauce
  • 1/4 cup crumbled blue cheese

Heat the pan over medium heat.  Add the oil and garlic and saute’ for 1 minute until fragrant but not brown.  Add the mushrooms; saute’ for 2-3 minutes until the mushrooms are caramelized.  Season with salt and pepper.

Cook the burgers as above, brushing them with steak sauce before and after and topping with blue cheese crumbles after flipping.  Place the burgers on toasted buns brushed with steak sauce and top with mushrooms.
