Have you been tempted to buy those special pans to make your own slider burgers? If you have a grill pan (or even if you don't), you probably have everything you need to make some sliders at home, for a fraction of the cost of going out to Chili's or TGI Fridays.
I just baked a batch of my homemade dinner rolls to use as buns and prepared my hamburger meat like I normally would. Basically, here is the recipe:
Makes 16 mini burgers
2.25 lbs. ground beef
1 packet dry onion soup mix
2 Tbsp. A-1 steak sauce
garlic powder, to taste
black pepper, to taste
1/2 chopped onion to sprinkle in the bottom of the pan.
To form patties, fill a 1/4 cup measuring cup with hamburger meat and empty onto a plastic lined cutting board (for easy clean-up). Pat meat down to form patty. Heat grill pan on medium heat, sprinkle onions onto center of pan, place 4-5 patties in center of pan and place grill press onto patties. Cook until brown on bottom and flip over. Patties are pretty much cooked at this point but I like to brown both sides. Slice rolls in half and place patties, cheese, and additional condiments, as desired. Enjoy!
