– 1 pound ground beef
– Salt and pepper to taste
– 12 slider buns
– 12 slices of cheddar cheese
– 2 large onions, thinly sliced
– 2 tablespoons butter
– 2 tablespoons brown sugar
– 1/4 cup mayonnaise
– 2 tablespoons ketchup
– 1 tablespoon yellow mustard
– 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
– Optional: Lettuce and sliced tomatoes for garnish
1. Begin by preparing the beef patties. In a mixing bowl, combine the ground beef, salt, and pepper. Gently mix until the seasonings are evenly incorporated. Divide the mixture into 12 equal portions and shape them into mini patties.
2. Heat a grill or a skillet over medium-high heat. Cook the patties for about 2-3 minutes on each side until they are nicely browned and cooked to your desired level of doneness. Just before removing them from the heat, place a slice of cheddar cheese on each patty and allow it to melt.
3. While the patties are cooking, let’s caramelize those onions. In a separate skillet, melt the butter over medium-low heat. Add the thinly sliced onions and sprinkle them with brown sugar. Stir occasionally, cooking for about 15-20 minutes until they are golden brown and soft.
4. In a small bowl, whisk together the mayonnaise, ketchup, yellow mustard, and Worcestershire sauce. This special sauce will add a tangy and savory element to our sliders.
5. Once you have all the elements ready, it’s time to assemble our Hail Mary Sliders! Cut the slider buns in half and spread a generous amount of the special sauce on each bun. Place a beef patty with melted cheese on the bottom bun, followed by a spoonful of caramelized onions. Top it off with the upper half of the bun.
6. If desired, you can add a touch of freshness by garnishing the sliders with lettuce and sliced tomatoes. Serve these mini delights alongside your favorite game day snacks and watch the crowd go wild with delight.
Tips and Variations:
– For a twist, try using different cheese options such as pepper jack or Swiss to add unique flavors to your sliders.
– Spice things up by adding a dash of hot sauce or chili powder to the special sauce.
– If you prefer a vegetarian version, substitute the ground beef with plant-based alternatives or opt for grilled portobello mushrooms as the patty base.
