Ingredients

Slider Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 lb. 80 percent lean ground beef
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons canola oil
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 8 slices cheddar cheese
  • 16 slices crispy bacon
  • 8 mini slider buns
  • 16 leaves Romaine or Iceberg lettuce
  • 16 slices ripe tomato
  • 16 slices bread and butter pickles
  • High-quality ketchup or mayonnaise

Strawberry Milkshake Ingredients (yields 8 half-portion servings)

  • 2 cups whole milk
  • 3 lbs. fresh strawberries
  • 2 pints vanilla bean ice cream

Preparation

For the Sliders

  • 1 Separate the beef into 16 equal portions, about 3 ounces each. Form each into a ¾ inch thick patty. Season each side of each burger with salt and pepper.
  • 2 In a sauté pan, heat the oil over high heat. When the oil begins to sizzle, cook the burgers until golden brown and a little charred on the first side.
  • 3 Flip and do the same to the second side. Each side will cook for approximately 3 minutes and will be medium rare. Cook longer if desired.
  • 4 During the last minute of cooking, add one slice of cheese to each burger. When the cheese has melted, remove the burgers from heat and place on buns.
  • 5 Top each one with bacon, tomato, pickle and lettuce. If desired, add ketchup or mayonnaise and serve.

For the Milkshake

  • 1 Hull and chop most strawberries. Leave some for garnish. In a blender, add milk, strawberries, and ice cream. Blend until smooth. Pour into small chilled glasses, garnish with strawberries.
