A Slider Is Nothing More Than A 3 ounce Burger Until It’s Gussied Up

Serves 2A CookTale

Divide 12 ounces of Sirloin & Chuck Steak in half. The following ingredients were added to each half. Grated Cheddar Cheese, Crumbled Bacon, Seasoned Salt, Black Pepper & a dash of Olive Oil. To the other 6 ounces, Portobello Mushroom, Finely diced Red Onion, Kosher Salt & Black Pepper & a dash of Olive Oil. I
Lightly mix them into shape, careful not to compact them, if so they’ll arrive at the table looking like hockey pucks & tasting like I don’t know what. Awaiting their turn on the dining table was Mayonnaise, Horseradish Mustard, Sliced Red Onion, Dill Pickle spears, sliced Tomato & Chili Sauce.

Though gussied up, they were still simply 3 ounce Burgers on slider buns.
