My son is a notorious burger lover. He makes the hamburglar look like a lightweight. He turned 10 last week and we had a little soirée at the house for him over the weekend. A few weeks ago, I had found recipe for cheeseburger sliders on South Your Mouth blog and I knew they would be perfect!! So a few Fridays ago I made them to see how they would go over and boy did they ever! My whole family LOVED them. They were so easy to make it was almost ridiculous. Perfect party food!! So this weekend I made a batch for our party guests and they cleared them out! We have enjoyed them so much, I knew I had to share them with ya’ll!! If you have ever had a White Castle burger and loved them…get ready because these are pretty darn close. Make up a batch or 2 for your family and friends.
Cheeseburger Sliders (adapted from South Your Mouth)
1/2 onion, diced fine
2 1/2 pounds ground meat
American cheese slices (my kids rather thestheory out cheese but the original recipe calls for it)
24 white dinner rolls (I find them in the grocery store bakery department and they typically come in packs of 12)
preheat your oven to 400 degrees. Dice the onion really fine. In a 13 x 18 cookie sheet (or irregular sized ones) sprinkle the onion evenly on the cookie sheet. Press the ground meat into the cookie sheet until it is evenly distributed and covers the entire cookie sheet. Bake in the preheated oven for about 20-35 minutes. There will be some pink when you cut the meat into patties, but you don’t want them overlooked. Feel free to cook the meat a little longer.
after you take the cooked hamburger meat out of the oven, place your cheese slices on the meat if you are using it. I used a pizza cutter to cut the meat into patties. Using a bread knife, slice the buns horizontally in half. Place patties between the buns. Pile those babies up on a plate, put them out and get ready to watch them disappear!!!! My son loves pickles on his and my other kids love ketchup. Don’t be afraid the kids won’t like them because of the onions…9/10 of the kiddos here for the party gobbled them up!!! Enjoy!
