These mini sliders make a great side dish for parties/potlucks/dinners, etc.
Ingredients: (makes 16 sliders)
2 lbs. Ground beef
16 mini slices cheddar cheese
16 small leaves romaine lettuce
16 small slices of tomato
16 mini burger buns
½ cup mayonnaise
⅛ cup mustard
1 tablespoon sweet relish
1 teaspoon lemon juice
3 teaspoons Montreal Steak Seasoning
1 teaspoon Seasoned Salt
Butter for Griddle
Break up with ground beef in a large bowl. Dump in the egg, and mix it completely in to the beef with your hands.
Shape beef into 16 even balls, and then shape into little patties.
Prepare the slices of cheddar, lettuce, and tomato on a serving platter.
For the seasoning, in a small bowl combine steak seasoning and seasoned salt.
For sauce, stir mayonnaise, mustard, sweet relish, and lemon juice in a small bowl for the sauce.
Preheat the grill, and place a cast iron flat griddle over it. Or, you can preheat a flat surface over your stove for the burgers.
When ready to grill patties, take the patties, seasoning, and cheddar cheese out with you to the grill. Spread butter over the hot surface.
Then place down burgers, and press with a burger press, or a dinner plate. But if your patties are already flat enough, you don’t need to press them.
Sprinkle patties with the seasoning.
Let grill on this one side for a minute or so.
After the first side is cooked, flip patties, and sprinkle the cooked sides with more seasoning. Place a piece of cheese over each patty.
When done grilling, take patties off the grill, and on a plate. Cover with aluminum foil.
As you can only probably grill 8 at a time, when you take off the 8, then grill the next 8 patties.
To prepare sliders, place bottom burger bun down.
Spread a small amount of sauce over it.
Then lettuce, then patty with cheese.
Then place tomato on, then ketchup and mustard.
Finally, cap it with the top burger bun, and secure everything with a long party toothpick.
Do this process to the rest of the burgers.
