Yep. That ridiculous photo has nothing to do with anything. It just illustrates how easy an internet search for one thing can bring you to something completely unrelated. I typed in ‘Deflate Gate’ and a few clicks later I happened upon another type of football entirely. But, hey, that really is a fabulous bag.
Moving right along.
It’s hard not to want to make a recipe that has ‘Party Time’ in the title. That’s especially true when the recipe is for sliders, which are always fun and festive.
These little burgers are definitely a little party on the plate. Traditional toppings such as pickle, ketchup and mustard are mixed into the meat before cooking which gives the burgers incredible flavor.
Jerk Spiced Fries are also a party worthy dish. The fragrant seasoning, which includes chiles, thyme, cinnamon, garlic, and nutmeg to name a few of the spices, gives them a different and delicious taste. My family went wild for the Chutney Mayo to dip the fries in.
1 egg, lightly beaten
1/4 cup quick-cooking oats
2 tablespoons dill pickle relish
2 tablespoons ketchup
2 teaspoons prepared mustard
2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1/8 teaspoon garlic powder
1 pound ground beef
4 slices American cheese
10 dinner rolls, split
1. Preheat broiler.
2. In a large bowl, combine the first eight ingredients. Add beef and mix thoroughly.
3. Shape beef mixture into 10 patties. Place patties on a 15 x 10 inch baking pan.
4. Broil 3-4 inches from heat for 4-6 minutes on each side.
5. Meanwhile, cut cheese slices to fit patties. Immediately place on cooked burgers. Serve on rolls.
Note: To make ahead, the uncooked patties can be frozen on a baking sheet then transferred to a storage container when firm. Broil the frozen patties as directed, increasing the cooking time as necessary.

From the looks of Beef Jerk’s Bandcamp page, it appears that these guys would probably enjoy a plate of mini cheeseburgers and some fries. (Maybe not a pink handbag). The page includes images of sriracha and beer as well as photos of what looks like the members digging in to some Bánh mì.
‘Schooners’ is the title track of Beef Jerk’s 2013 7-inch release. It’s messy and will inflate your mood for sure.
