Blue Cheese Sliders with Hot Jalapeno Sauce
Mama always says that “nothing good ever happens after midnight” , so growing up I had to be home way before midnight. Anyone that’s from the south, knows one thing good does happen after midnight - Krystal. Sure they’re great for breakfast, lunch or dinner but after midnight those little square burgers really hit the spot.
Once I was in college, the after midnight rule was out the window and yes, I would be in line at the Krystal with hundreds of other souls, standing there with their mouths watering, waiting to get their hands on a sackful of little square burgers!
1 lb lean ground beef
1 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
salt and pepper
8 tsp reduced fat blue cheese crumbles
Place ground beef in a mixing bowl, season with Worcestershire, salt and pepper, mix together well and form 8 slider patties.
Cook in a large pan over medium-high heat, about 4 minutes each side, when done let sliders rest and top with 1 tsp blue cheese on each patty.
Place sliders on bun with lettuce, top with caramelized onions and hot jalapeno sauce.
For caramelized onions:
1 tsp olive oil
1/2 sweet onion, sliced
Heat 1 tsp olive oil in a small saute pan on low heat, add onions and let cook slowly while you are cooking the sliders. Onions usually take 15-20 minutes to caramelize.
For hot jalapeno sauce:
1 tbsp Hellman’s mayo
2 tbsp stone ground mustard
1/2 tbsp hot jalapeno pepper jelly
Combine all ingredients in a small bowl. Chill before serving.
Can’t find slider buns? Just use a large square dinner roll. I like to use Sara Lee classic dinner rolls.
