This is a slider, and it is Daniel’s favorite thing I cook.
Understandably so. (Humble brag). They are chock full of flavor, and sliders are a man food for sure. They make you want to grab a beer…Call people “bro”….Watch some baseball…. You get the picture.
Luckily, they are incredibly easy to make.
To make the hamburger patties, you will need:
For one pound of ground beef, add 1 tablespoon of worcestershire and 2 tablespoons of honey mustard. The honey mustard is key here! It gives the hamburger tons of flavor and juiciness! Go crazy with the honey mustard. You won’t regret it.
Knead together well, then add 1 teaspoon of Italian seasoning, 1 tablespoon of garlic powder, and a good helping of ground black pepper.
Knead together, and then form into small patties. Remember you are making sliders! You want them to be a bit smaller than a regular hamburger patty.
Grill to desired doneness. (Is that a grammatically correct statement? I’m not quite sure. Hm.)
While your burgers are grilling, saute 1/2 cup of mushrooms and 1/2 cup of chopped onions in olive oil over medium heat.
When the burgers are cooked, I added some munster cheese and left them on the grill for about 2 minutes, to allow the cheese to melt.
Place the cooked cheesy burgers on slider buns. Yes, they make slider buns. Yes, they were on sale at Kroger this week. Yes, that is awesome.
Then, top with the sauteed mushroom and onion.
Add your ketchup, mustard, whatever you prefer, and enjoy!
Please note several things about this photo.
1. Daniel stinks at “posed candid”. When you tell him to “act natural” he will look about as unnatural as possible. This is the reason we did not do engagement pictures. Oh well. He’s still cute.
2. He demanded that his Auburn cup be in the photo. War Eagle.
3. It looks like we are really healthy and just having sliced tomatoes as a side, but in reality, I just didn’t put the fries in the oven at the right time. We devoured fries after finishing our sliders. Whoops.
