Beefy sliders – wee burgers you can eat in a few bites – are perfect Super Bowl party snacks. They fit the bill when you want something more substantial than chips and dip. This recipe comes from Top Chef star Tiffany Derry, who has shared some of her favourite game day recipes – good eats to serve on the couch this Sunday.
Tiffany suggests serving these saucy, beefy sliders with sweet potato fries, served in mini cones made from parchment paper cut into triangles. To spice them up, add 3 chopped roasted poblano peppers to the meat mixture. If you can’t find mini burger buns, try small dinner rolls instead.
BBQ Beef Sliders
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 20 minutes
Servings: 16 sliders
2 lbs. ground chuck
2 tbsp. Worcestershire sauce
2 cups (8 oz.) Sargento® ChefStyle Shredded Pepper Jack Cheese
2 cups (8 oz.) Sargento® ChefStyle Shredded Mild Cheddar Cheese
½ cup barbeque sauce
16 mini burger buns
1 small red onion, thinly sliced
32 dill pickle slices
Preheat grill or sauté pan over medium-high heat.
Mix meat with Worcestershire sauce. Form into 16 patties slightly larger than the buns.
Add one tablespoon of the Pepper Jack cheese on each patty, reform into a ball, and then flatten out again into a patty to keep the cheese in the center while cooking.
Cook patties 3 to 4 minutes; turn and cook 3 minutes more. Top with cheddar cheese.
Spread barbeque sauce on buns. Top with burgers, onion and pickles.
