We had company coming over for dinner and needed a tasty appetizers. Sliders are an obvious choice. However, why settle for one kind when it is just about as easy to make three different sliders with a bit of preparation.
The bun is a critical part of a slider. I made Beginner Dinner Rolls from an earlier post. Instead of making 9 rolls, I made 12 so they would be smaller. You can use any small dinner roll you like.
Then I prepared the tiger sauce by mixing the mayonnaise, horseradish, garlic and Sriracha sauce. I took out the other sauces (relish and sweet chili sauce). You can get sweet chili sauce in the Asian section of your grocery.
I got out the toppings (bacon, jalapeno jack cheese, back (Canadian) bacon and slivered onions.
I took the breakfast sausage out of their casings. I mixed 1/3 of the sausage with 1/3 of the ground beef.
I made 3 patties each out of the remaining beef, remaining sausage and the beef sausage mixture for a total of 9 patties.
I put the patties and bacons in a pan heated to medium high.
While the meat was cooking, I put the tiger sauce on three buns, the sweet chili sauce on 3 buns and the relish (I used home made Zucchini Mustard Relish).
Turn the patties and put the jalapeno jack cheese on the beef patties.
Cut the back (Canadian) bacon into 3 pieces.
Put the back (Canadian) bacon on the buns with the sweet chili sauce. Put the sausage patties on the bacon and put the top of the buns on.
Put the mixed beef/sausage patties on the buns with the tiger sauce. Spread the slivered onions on top and put the top of the buns on.
Put the beef patty on the buns with the relish and put the 1/3 slice of bacon on each patty. Put the top of the buns on.
Serve and act modest when everyone tells you these are the best appetizers ever.
These vanished. They were gone in minutes. Everyone loved them and thought I had done a ton of work because there were three different types when it really didn’t take a lot more than making one type. Make these. People will think you are a genius.
