Recipe by Chef John
"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. They are perfect for Super Bowl® parties."

16 paper muffin liners
salt and ground black pepper to taste
Secret sauce ingredients:
sweet pickle relish
slider-size burger buns, cut almost through horizontally
slices roma (plum) tomato
These were a hit, and it was the 'secret sauce' that put these over the top! I toasted the buns and added a little cheese. I plan to make these again, and I'll be using the sauce often~YUM! Thanks for sharing. :)
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 McCormick Grill Mates Montreal Steak Seasoning instead of just salt & pepper. Use King's Hawaiian Sweet Rolls for your buns, you won't regret it!
Love the sauce! I used dill relish instead of sweet. I added a tablespoon of minced garlic and a dash of dale sauce and a pkg of lipton onion soup mix to the hamburger. Then reshaped it so I could cut it into 8 even pieces. I'll have to make more of the sauce next time because we used it to dip our fries too! We like our burger done completely and it took significantly longer than 4 minutes on each side. I used a thermometer to tell when they hit 165 degrees. This was perfect for our family.
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 to the dressing.
Third: I used Hawaiian Sweet Bread dinner rolls, and topped each burger with a small piece of pineapple, and a slice of jalapeno.
*Alternative dressing is sweet chili sauce; adjusting the heat with hot pepper flakes.
This was 'ONO (which means DELICIOUS in Hawaiian)!!
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 to unhinge your jaw to bite it. "and as always, enjoy!"
Perfect! Ready for BBQ season now!
This recipe was very easy!!!! My grand children LOVED them!!!! Thank you John for such an easy recipe and I loved the sauce. I added a little cheese and onions. Mmmmmmmm!! ;)
loved the sauce too!
