The Gourmand Mom
It’s burger season. It’s also unpredictable, chance-of-rain just about everyday season, which might just foil your grilling burgers plan, unless you’re like my dad who grills in snow, sleet, and rain. Weather is no more a deterrent for my father than it is for the mail man. I guarantee he’ll have ribs on the grill during the apocalypse. I like that about him.
I, however, am a fair-weather griller. Thankfully, burgers can still be enjoyed on rainy days with these simple, indoor burger sliders. The kids love these tiny tasty burgers. Who am I kidding? We all love these burgers. Hot dog buns, split into thirds make the perfect little slider buns. A dill pickle slice and spoonful of my spicy-as-you-like-it special sauce complete each perfect mini burger.
Here’s a step-by-step guide to making these tasty burgers, which may quickly become one of your easy go-to weeknight meals!
1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. Scatter 1/2 finely diced onion in an even layer at the bottom of a 9 by 13-inch baking dish or half-sheet pan.
2. Crumble 1 pound of ground beef over the onion. (Use 80/20 ground beef. It makes a difference!)
3. Press the meat into an even layer. Sprinkle with seasoned salt. (I used Old Bay seasoning.)
