I married a Taylor.  Beef is a must at all family functions.

We love cheeseburgers & mini cheeseburger sliders have become somewhat of a trademark here in our home – I feel like we always serve them.  But everyone loves them & I will often offer different sauces to mix it up.   I’m not a big fan of over-seasoning or mixing in a bunch of random stuff into the meat.  Let the beef be the beef!  Those of you who know Chip can probably recognize this sentiment as his culinary influence on me. 🙂

Anyhow, the basics for sliders:

80/20 Ground Beef – if you insist on  mixing a different type of meat with the beef, we will occasionally use veal.  That’s it.  No pork.  No lamb.  For heaven’s sake – no turkey!  Turkey burgers are an oxymoron as far as the Taylors are concerned.

Seasonings – again, we keep it simple.  Worcestershire sauce, Lawry’s seasoned salt, and a small amount of garlic salt.

Cheese – there’s a reason the cheeseburger is considered iconic American cuisine.  Use American cheese.  There is a time & place for fancy toppings & cheeses on your burgers.  But don’t allow yourself to be fooled- people love a classic burger topped with gooey American cheese.

Bun – there are tons of slider style buns available now.  We always use the King’s Hawaiian Rolls.  They have several flavors; the original Hawaiian sweet roll is our favorite.


Step 1: Season Ground Beef & Press into a glass baking dish.  Prick the meat all over with the tines of a fork.

Step 2: Bake at 400 degrees for 25-30 minutes.  Remove from oven & drain grease

Step 3: Top with cheese & return to oven for 3 minutes or until cheese is melted.

Step 4: Using a pizza cutter, slice beef into slider-sized squares


Super Easy Sliders

I served these yesterday at Mac’s birthday party & Chip’s brother told me they were the best burgers I’ve ever made.  I almost cried.  A meat compliment from Chip or his brother, Uncle Worm (aka Ryan), means more than your average man’s praise.

  1. Lori! I love Produce Mom! I am an awful cook but everytime I read your blog it motivates me to give it a try. Last week I tried this recipe and Matt was very impressed me. I told him it was your recipe and he was like Thank God for Lori! LOL… Thank you for making your recipes dummy proof and delicious!

    1. Thank you, Helina! I appreciate your support & tell Matt I’m thankful for him, too! Love you both xoxo

  2. Nick made these for dinner Monday night – they were delish!!! Thx for the great recipe…Eddie is whipping some up for himself tonight! 🙂

  3. we made tonight for dinner. Super easy to make even on a work night. Served with lemon carrots and everyone was happy! Keep the yummy and easy recipes coming. Thanks

  4. Delish!! I used 1 1/4 lbs of meat and an 8×8 glass dish. I was surprised how much the meat shrunk up!! This was Doug’s post bachelor party weekend dinner. He went back for seconds 🙂 Thanks for the dinner idea.

    1. Hi Sherree,
      We had a crowd yesterday so I had three 9×13 pans. That’s probably accurate for approx 10lbs of meat. Just season your ground beef as you normally would & we pressed the beef to about a 3/4″ thickness in the pan. Want them to taste like white castle? layer some dried minced onion on the pan prior to pressing down the beef.

      Thank you for being a fan xoxoxo
