I'm re-posting this from two summers ago...  because I still love sliders! 
 

Sliders for the 4th of July 


I asked Mike what he thought would be a good idea for a burger themed party.  He said, "Call everyone before the party and ask them exactly what they'd like on their burger - customized."  Hum...  that seems like a lot of work - I'm not running a restaurant. 

I thought that making a variety of mini slider burgers would be a better way of letting everyone try some new twists on our favorite combinations.   This is a great party idea for the 4th of July - a new twist on the classic grilled burger.

I've made thousands of sliders in my day - literally.  During my catering days, sliders had just hit the scene and every Bride and hostess wanted sliders.  They were a little time consuming to make, but very budget friendly - which I loved, of course.  I found that the best (and easiest...) way to make them in mass quantities is to form them with an ice cream scoop and broil them on a baking sheet in the oven, similar to meatballs.

Sliders 
makes 18 medium sliders


3 pounds of ground beef
1 tablespoon of sea salt
1/2 tablespoon of black pepper
1 tablespoon of dijon mustard
1 tablespoon of steak sauce
1 egg
18 mini buns

In a large bowl, combine beef, salt, pepper, mustard, steak sauce and egg with your hands.  Be careful not to compact the mixture.  Form 18 patties and place them on a baking sheet. Place in the oven under the broiler on high for 5-7 minutes.  Remove and place the patties on buns on a clean baking sheet.  Cover with foil.  Keep them warm in a 250 degrees oven for up to 30 minutes.


To make the party really easy, you can have everyone make their own.  Print these signs to help your guests come up with tasty creations.
