Sliders seem to be everywhere these days and in all kinds of varieties.  Restaurants are offering meatloaf sliders, BBQ pork sliders, chicken sliders, and of course, burger sliders.  And I can see why, their smallness makes them cute and FUN!  So of course, I wanted to make them at home.

A while back, I found a recipe in Cooking Light for sliders that was really easy and really tasty.  So these sliders are very similar to that recipe, with just a couple of changes.  They would be perfect to serve at your Superbowl party!


Super Sliders

For four sliders:

  • 1/2 lb ground beef (I used 93% lean)
  • salt and pepper
  • 4 slider buns
  • olive oil
  • prepared pesto
  • 1/4 cup roasted red pepper
  • 2 tbsp shaved parmesan cheese

Form ground beef into four patties and season with salt and pepper.  Set aside.

Heat a grill pan or skillet over medium heat.

Split slider rolls and drizzle with olive oil.  Place in pan and grill until toasted.  Remove from pan and spread a little pesto on each half.

Set buns aside.  Grill burgers four minutes on each side.

Place each burger on a bun.  Top with red pepper and parmesan.  Serve immediately.
