My husband loves cooking certain things ~ a big Sunday breakfast, spicy chicken wings and these All American Beef Sliders. They’re as classic as apple pie; a symbol of American cuisine but don’t underestimate them. Sometimes it’s the unexpected recipes that end up being the MVP of the party! 

So I’m sitting back while he takes the helm, er stove on this one taking photos and of course, devouring them when they’re finished. It’s a tough job, but someone’s gotta do it. 

Sliders aren’t just a mini version of a hamburger. This thin beef patty topped with sautéed onions, pickles, cheese and if you’re so inclined a little ketchup and mustard is housed between the perfect slider buns are simple comfort food.

They’re seasoned with just salt and pepper and cooked so that a light flavor crust is created on the outside and are steeped with rich beef and onion flavor.

All American Beef Sliders Ingredients:

  • 1 medium onion very thinly sliced
  • 1 pound ground chuck
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1/2 tablespoon butter
  • 1 package Pepperidge Farm slider buns (white used but any variety would work well)
  • dill pickle chips
  • ketchup and mustard
  • American cheese (optional)

Instructions:

Thinly slice the onions (you want them almost paper thin) and set them aside.

Form the meat into equal size balls (about 6 from a 16 ounce package of ground chuck), lightly packing so you don’t overwork the meat, then press into thin patties. They’ll be larger than the slider buns at this point, but will shrink when they’re cooked. 

Melt about 1/2 tablespoon of butter over medium heat in a large skillet or griddle then add the patties and season them with salt and pepper.

Place a few (or a lot!) raw onions on top of each slider then gently press them down on them with a spatula.

Cook the sliders over medium heat 3-4 minutes or until the edges are beginning to brown then carefully turn them over so the onions are now on the bottom.

Place the bottom of the bun on top of the slider patty then add the top bun, cover with a lid and continue cooking another couple of minutes until the sliders are cooked through. 

Remove the slider from the skillet and if you’re adding cheese, place a slice between the buns (the warmth of the slider will melt the cheese). No fancy cheeses ~ American is just right for these classics.

Load up a bowl of pickles plus ketchup and mustard for guests to add as they like for a fast, easy game day recipe your guests will devour.

Ready to plan your Game Day gathering? How about an easy spicy, cheesy dip to kick things off, and before the two minute warning, a little something sweet.

Enjoy!

    Honeychile – this recipe floats my boat! Everything about it sounds so darn good. Love cooking the onions on the meat and steaming the buns in the skillet. Pinned. Added to my menu. Chat later – keep warm and safe.

      Thanks so much Mary! Though I can’t take credit for this one ~ just the photos. My husband Ray was the “chef” in the kitchen with this recipe and boy, is it a good one!! Hope you’re dodging the storms (they seem to be everywhere lately!). Enjoy the day 🙂

    These are the best. Right size and flavor. The cooked on onions add a touch of old time burgers from days past. A Gouda Life knows what good is.

      This is definitely a must-try recipe. Also – if there are any leftovers, wrap in wax paper and reheat in the microwave the next day – delicious!
