Everybody loves burgers so why not make them into an appetizer? I’m sure that thought is the inspiration for sliders. They are a great appetizer or light meal.

As long as you are making sliders, why not make a variety? It will give your guests a great treat.

I started by making three kinds of small patties. I made four with Italian sausage, four with half Italian sausage and ground beef and four with ground beef.

I fried the patties with 1 slice of canned pineapple sliced in half across the ring and with the halves cut into quarters. I also fried  2 slices of back (Canadian) bacon cut in half. I used a frying pan this time but they also do well on a barbecue.

While I was frying the patties, I spooned Teriyaki Sauce over the beef patties and Sweet Thai Chili Sauce over the Italian sausage patties after I turned them.

I spread Tiger Sauce on four small dinner buns and put the half and half patties on top and garnished with some sliced onion.

I put the beef patties on four buns and topped with more teriyaki sauce and the pineapple.

I put the Italian Sausage patties on four small dinner rolls and added more Thai Chili Sauce and a piece of back (Canadian) bacon.

The Verdict

I love these little burgers and using Italian sausage gives it a great flavour kick!
