Yesterday I wrote about locally raised, grass-fed beef from Brady's Beef in Idaho. (There's a giveaway, so you may want to check it out!) In that post I mentioned using their organic ground beef to make beef sliders, and I promised you the recipe.
Today I'm making good on that promise.
I found the Honey Wheat Hawaiian rolls (12-pack) were PERFECT for the sliders--just the right amount of bun for those burgers. For the cheese, we picked up a variety pack of Cello cracker cut cheese from Costco. Again, perfect for the sliders. The cheddar went well with the beef and the Havarti with the turkey.
Did I mention you could substitute lean ground turkey for the ground beef? We served both and not a bite was left of either flavor. If you do use turkey, I would increase the seasonings just a titch.
If you don't do caramelized onions, go with grilled or leave them off entirely. You could top these with onion strings and bleu cheese dressing instead if you'd like. The options are endless! Just promise you'll trust me on the Hawaiian rolls.
One other note: It was mid February in Utah when I made these sliders so we cooked them inside on our Cuisinart panini press inside. They were still tasty, but I can't wait to try them on our gas grill when the weather warms up!
