Slider Recipe (makes 20 sliders)

  • 3 ounces (6 tablespoons) unsalted butter, softened
  • 2 to 3 shallots, minced
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • Coarse salt and freshly ground pepper
  • 2 pounds ground sirloin
  • 20 round dill pickle slices
  • 20 slices (2-inch square) white cheese, any type
  • 20 soft dinner rolls, split and toasted
  • 20 small lettuce leaves, any type, for serving
  • 3 Roma or plum tomatoes, thinly sliced crosswise, for serving
  • Condiments, such as ketchup, mayonnaise, and mustard, for serving


  1. Melt 4 tablespoons butter in a small pan. Add shallots, and cook until softened, about 1 1/2 minutes. Stir in water, and season with salt and pepper.
  2. Form 20 patties using 2 tablespoons ground sirloin for each. Place on a rimmed baking sheet, and coat patties with remaining 2 tablespoons butter. Press a pickle slice into each patty (refrigerate for up to 2 hours).
  3. Preheat broiler. Season patties with salt and pepper. Broil for 4 to 5 minutes. Top burgers with cheese during final 30 seconds.
  4. Spread shallot butter on bottom half of each roll, then top with 1 burger. Sandwich with top half of roll, and serve with lettuce, tomatoes, ketchup, mayonnaise, and mustard.


  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • 2 chipotle chilies in adobo sauce
  • 1 tablespoon adobo sauce from chipotle peppers

In a food processor, combine the mayonnaise, chipotle chilies, and adobo sauce. Pulse until smooth and well blended.

    These minis are fantastic. Such a fun idea for a gathering – of any age guests. I think some adults would be more entertained by the shot glasses w/ friend than anyone else. :) Thanks for this!

    Are the hamburger sliders served warm? How do you prepare ahead and still keep warm?
