little foods, miniature versions of regular dishes, means we had sliders today. I'm not much of a beer person, but I do enjoy a Pyramid Hefeweizen or Apricot Ale when the mood hits me.
Anyway, I made sliders the same way I'd make a regular burger, just smaller. To these I added minced garlic and chopped red onion, Red Tail Ale barbecue sauce, garlic powder and pepper. Make the patties slightly larger than you think you need to since they shrink a bit when cooking. Use dinner rolls for buns (Hawaiian rolls are really good here, but I used honey wheat this time) that have been lightly toasted, and top with your favorite burger toppings. I went for the standard cheese, lettuce, tomato, onion, dill pickles, and ketchup and mustard this time.
And I easily made a vegetarian version with some Gardenburger Black Bean Chipotle burgers, cut in half. One of these days I'll post my homemade bean burger recipe too. They're fab!
