The Pioneer Woman's Sliders

The Pioneer Woman's Sliders

Food Network - Ree Drummond

2 pounds ground beef
4 tablespoons heavy whipping cream
6 dashes Worcestershire sauce (less if you prefer)
1 teaspoon kosher salt
Freshly ground black pepper
8 whole dinner (or slider) rolls, split

Preheat the grill to medium heat. Mix the ground beef, heavy cream, Worcestershire and the salt and some pepper in a bowl. Use your hands to thoroughly mix the ingredients. Form 1/4 cup of the meat mixture into patties, making 16 patties total. Make an indentation with your thumb to keep the patties from plumping too much when they cook. Grill the sliders until just cooked through, 2 to 3 minutes per side. Remove from the grill and pile on a platter. Toast the halved buns on the grill. Place the sliders between the buns and serve immediately.

Topping Ideas:

1 pound thick-cut peppered bacon
Fry the bacon in a skillet over medium-high heat until slightly crisp, about 8 minutes. Remove from the pan and cut into bite-size pieces.

3 yellow onions, halved and sliced
3 tablespoons butter
In a separate pan, cook the onions in the butter over a low heat until caramelized, 20 to 30 minutes, stirring occasionally.

8 ounces gorgonzola
Use a fork to crumble the gorgonzola.

Put the bacon, caramelized onions and crumbled gorgonzola into separate bowls. Serve as delicious toppings for both sliders and macaroni cheese.
