Super Simple Sliders!

Memorial Day Weekend is almost here!  It is the time we take a moment to remember and honor those who have served our country and given their lives for our freedom.  It also happens to be the official kick-off to Summer.  For a few years now, sliders have been all the rage.  These bite-sized burgers are perfect for a party and now it is easier than ever to prepare them for a crowd.  Nordic Ware offers this “Burger Bites Grill Pan” that creates the prefect sliders every time and can be used on the stovetop or on the grill.

You can even find adorable mini buns that are perfectly sized for your sliders.

In fact, I recently discovered “slider patties” in the grocery store!  How easy is that?

Simply toss them in the pan and in minutes you have great mini-burgers with nice grill marks.  If you would rather make your own patties, it is as easy as 1, 2, 3!

Step 1 – Scoop

Scoop about 1/4 cup ground beef into preheated Burger Bites cavities.  (Also try ground turkey, lamb, bison, pork or salmon.)

Step 2 – Press

Using grill press, push down on the meat to form a burger patty.  Slide press sideways to release.

Step 3 – Flip

Cook about 5 minutes, and flip burger.  Use grill press to flatten burger, and finish cooking to desired doneness.  Add cheese and other toppings to serve.

For a festive party presentation I used a cupcake tree!  The sliders fit perfectly in the space and your guests can simply “grab and go” throughout the celebration.  It makes a great edible centerpiece to any Memorial Day party!  Have a great weekend everyone!
