It’s true that there is something highly enjoyable about a little burger. Maybe because you can eat a few and it doesn’t count. They are cute, too.
“Sliders” originally referred to thin mini-burgers in squishy buns. I grew up frequenting White Castle, iconic in the NY area. I still dream of eating a bag of those little oniony square burgers, mostly late on a Friday or Saturday, after a night out.
I had a hankering for some White Castle-style burgers and came across this recipe for sliders that looked really good. They are super easy to make. You don’t even need to form the mixture into patties. Just mix the beef, onion soup mix and cheese together (along with a decadent dash of mayo) and spoon into slider buns. Then bake. Yes, bake. So simple.
Baked fries are a perfect side. Very simple, as well.
2 pounds ground beef
1 (1.25 ounce) envelope onion soup mix
1/2 cup mayonnaise
2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
24 dinner rolls, split
1/2 cup sliced pickles
1. Preheat oven to 350℉.
2. Cover a baking sheet with aluminum foil and spray with cooking spray.
3. Mix together ground beef and onion soup mix in a large skillet; cook and stir over medium-high heat until the beef is crumbly, evenly browned, and no longer pink. Drain and discard any excess grease. Remove from heat.
4. Stir the mayonnaise and cheddar cheese into the ground beef mixture.
5. Lay the bottoms of the dinner rolls on the prepared baking sheet. Spread the cheese and beef mixture on the bottom half of each roll. Replace the tops. Cover with another sheet of aluminum foil sprayed with cooking spray.
6. Bake until the burgers are heated through and cheese melts, about 30 minutes. Serve with sliced pickles.

I need some loud music to get the week started. Tyrannosaurus Dead have just the right song.
