"Sliders are a small version of a hamburger. A little trick helps you to get them all the same size so they cook evenly and look very professional. Do a couple of tests to determine your perfect degree of doneness and cook all the burgers the same amount of time."

  1. Place ground beef onto a work surface; divide into 8 equal-size pieces using a knife or pastry cutter. Line 8 muffin cups with paper liners.
  2. Sprinkle bottoms of paper liners with salt and black pepper. Form each piece of burger into a rough ball and place into a muffin cup. Season tops with salt and pepper.
  3. Place a second paper liner on top of each piece of meat and gently press it down to shape the mini burger into a round, flat shape. Pull off the paper tops and remove burgers from the muffin cups; remove bottom paper liners from burgers.
  4. Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Cook burgers in the hot skillet until they have a browned crust and are slightly pink in the middle, about 3 minutes per side. Flip burgers and cook 3 minutes on other side. Remove burgers to a plate to rest for 2 minutes.
  5. Mix mayonnaise, ketchup, mustard, and pickle relish in a bowl; spoon a dollop onto each bun. Place burgers onto buns, season with more black pepper, and top with a tomato slice. Close buns and serve.

Footnotes

  • Cook's Notes:
  • I prefer grass-fed organic beef.
  • Approximate cooking times: 3 minutes per side for rare to medium-rare; 4 minutes per side for medium; 5 minutes per side for medium-well to well-done.
  • Once the sliders are flattened, you can store refrigerated until needed, up to 8 hours.

This is good for a basic slider but the true secret to a Super Slider is putting a dollop (approx. 1/2 tbsp) of butter in the center of the patty before cooking. I also season mine with McCormi...

awesome! the sauce is great too. but I divided the meat and put it into cheap baggies to press into patties; no mess that way. They're thinner and cook faster. Easier to eat too, don't have...

I always love Chef John's recipes so I thought I would use ths one as a jumping off point. I decided I wanted to kick it up a notch. I substituted Johnsonville Italian sausage for the ground bee...

Great base recipe, but I needed more flavor. So I made a few simple changes: First: I seasoned my beef before cooking by adding chopped garlic. Second: I added one part Blazin' Burger seasoning...
