I was having a hankering for sliders so I came up with this recipe

  • 1 pound of ground beef
  • 2 Tbl dried onion flakes
  • ¼ Cup hot water
  • ½  tsp smoked salt
  • ½ tsp garlic powder
  • small buns or potato rolls
  1. Soak dried onion flakes in hot water for a few minutes to soften.
  2. Mix together beef, smoked salt, garlic powder and onion/water mixture.
  3. Divide meat into 8 portions and form into patties about 3 to 3½-inch in diameter.
  4. Fry on a griddle or heavy frying pan until cooked through, flipping once
  5. Slice buns and place a patty on each bun
  6. Add condiments of choice
  • Dill pickle slices
  • 1 medium (or ½ large) onion, thinly sliced and sauteed until caramelized and a nice rich color
  • BBQ sauce
  • Mayonnaise
  • Ketchup (or Catsup)
  • Mustard
  • Dill pickle slices are a must on sliders as far as I am concerned.  Everything else is a matter of choice
  • Serve with frys - or, even better, tater tots - or best, cheesy tater tots
