My First Sliders

Made them for the first time last night.  Baked 50g rolls and used 50g of hamburg.  When I make big burgers, I can't get them to work.  Even though I've been eating meat for a little while now, I'm still not good at beef burgers.  So I went smaller and that worked.  So much so that ate three.

Tim only got one.

    1. Today it means little hamburger, but back in the day the term had crude a meaning.

      It went something like this, they slide going in and and they slide going out.

      I was a veghead in those days though.

    1. Turkey if I ground it at home, isn't too bad, but last night was a lesson in beef.

    1. Thanks, Alan. I was out of egg wash and had to go with olive oil. Only thing though, the seeds didn't stick too well. Most are on the plate.

    Looks yummy, though. Bet it was, too.

  9. I've heard of these small burgers, but haven't had them myself.

    Compensation for Tim by way of a calzone is more than welcome!

  11. I love sliders. Always a happy hour special at breweries. I had one at a fancier place that had sliced beet on it. Not bad.

    1. Organic locally grown beets are my favorite. Slice 'em up, and eat 'em like chips. So flippin' good.

    1. Do you ever make little rolls? They are so fun and cute and fun. Wait I said fun twice. But they are.

    2. I make dinner rolls sometimes, and have been known to eat them as sandwiches. Cute and fun is good. :)
