These sliders are so good, you just can't have one.

Labor Day weekend is approaching — if you don't have an outdoor grill, this is the perfect recipe to cook and serve indoors.

Ingredients

  • (3) 2  Ounce  patties, square
  • slices American cheese
  • 1/2  onion, chopped and caramelized
  • 12  pickle slices
  • ketchup
  • mustard
  • slider-sized hamburger buns, such as Martins potato rolls

Directions

Preheat a cast-iron skillet or sauté pan, over high heat.

2.      Form each 2-ounce patty into a ball and season generously with salt and pepper.

3.      Place meat into pan and flatten meat with a spatula.

4.      Allow the meat to get crispy on the exterior, cooking for about 1-2 minutes on each side.

5.      Place ketchup, mustard, and pickles on bottom bun and with spatula; scrape burger off pan and flip onto bun.

6.     Top with onions and cheese and top half of bun.

Burger Shopping Tip

Most cattle are fed a diet of grass until they are sent to a feedlot – where they are finished on corn. When possible, choose beef from cattle that are “100% grass fed” - it will be more expensive, but better for your health.

Burger Cooking Tip

The method used to cook beef is dependent on the cut. Cuts that are more tender, like filet mignon, should be cooked for a relatively short amount of time over high heat by grilling or sautéing. While less tender cuts, like brisket and short ribs, should be cooked for a longer time with lower heat by braising or stewing.
