Crescent City Sliders with Triple Cheese Topping

Crescent City Sliders with Triple Cheese Topping
Staff Writer
Genet Hogan

Created by blogger Genet Hogan of Raised on a Roux, these sliders pay homage to their New Orleans hometown with spicy Andouille sausage mixed with ground chuck, green onions, garlic, and Worcestershire sauce. They wouldn’t be complete, though, without a topping of cheese sauce made with cream, Cheddar, and Jack cheese.

Ingredients

For the Triple Cheese Topping

  • 4  Ounces  cream cheese, softened
  • 1/2  Cup  grated sharp Cheddar cheese
  • 1/2  Cup  grated Pepper Jack cheese
  • 1/4  Cup  chopped roasted red peppers
  • 1/4  Cup  grated onion
  • 1  Teaspoon  Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/4  Teaspoon  salt
  • 1/4  Teaspoon  garlic powder
  • 1/8  Teaspoon  black pepper
  • Pinch of  cayenne

For the sliders

  • 1  Pound  Andouille smoked sausage
  • 1  Pound  ground chuck
  • small bunch green onions, chopped
  • clove garlic, minced
  • 2  Tablespoons  Worcestershire sauce
  • 1  Teaspoon  salt
  • 1/4  Teaspoon  black pepper
  • 1 1/2  Cup  Triple Cheese Topping
  • 2  Tablespoons  unsalted butter, melted
  • One  12-pack slider buns

Directions

For the Triple Cheese Topping

Combine all ingredients in a medium bowl.  Cover and refrigerate until ready to use. Makes about 1 ½ cups.

For the sliders

Heat the grill for direct cooking over medium-high heat. Remove the Andouille from its casing and place in a food processor. Pulse into small pieces and transfer to a large bowl. Add the ground chuck, green onions, garlic, Worcestershire sauce, salt, and pepper and combine with your hands. Form the meat mixture into 12 even-sized patties. Make a deep thumbprint in the middle of each patty (this will help keep them from shrinking while they cook). Place the burgers on grill and close the cover. Cook until nice grill marks appear, about 4-5 minutes. Flip the burgers and continue cooking until the second side forms nice grill marks, another 4-5 minutes. During the last minute of cooking, mound 1 heaping teaspoon of the Triple Cheese Topping on each burger. Cook until the cheese is slightly melted (keep an eye on it as this happens quickly). Just before the burgers are done cooking, spread the butter on both sides of slider buns and place on top shelf of grill until lightly toasted. Place a burger between each bun and serve immediately.

Cheese Shopping Tip

If a piece of cheese smells strongly of ammonia, don't buy it. This is typically a sign of spoilage.

Cheese Cooking Tip

Allow cheese to come to room temperature before serving. This will accentuate the flavors and aromas.
