5 Home-Run Slider Recipes
Sometimes, you just really feel like having a burger. But not always a full-sized one. Sliders fit into this role perfectly, allowing you to indulge without feeling guilty. And, you can mix and match — to bridge the gap from appetizer to main course, try serving different sliders with different beers or different sides and condiments for easy entertaining.
Many attribute the origin of the slider to two guys from Kansas, Walt Anderson and Billy Ingram, who together, started the famous White Castle franchise back in 1921.
The enormous popularity of sliders today can be attributed to these two men and the creativity of chefs and cooks across America. This week, we decided to develop our very own creative slider recipes for you to try at home. Here are some highlights:
- Lori Yates, author of the blog foxes love lemons and member of the Culinary Content Network, has an easy Asian-inspired slide recipe for you to try this week: Curried Pork Sliders with Peanut Sauce and Apple Slaw.
- Tim McGeever has a Spicy Crab Salad Sliders Recipe that's a snap to make.
- And the winning recipe this week is my very own Grilled Swordfish Sliders with Quick Pickled Onions and Charred Cherry Tomatoes.
All of the recipes featured here can be made at home for about $25 or less, excluding the cost of small amounts of basic ingredients such as butter, oil, flour, sugar, salt, pepper, and other dried herbs and spices.
