Sliders, What's Your Pleasure?

I've often taken some different style meatballs and turned them into grilled sliders. I serve them with condiments that fit the original theme. Like Italian "meatball" sliders or "Bahn Mi" style pork sliders.

My favourite way to make my sliders is with good ground beef, simply spiced. Topped with a dash of homemade relish, crispy bacon and a poached quails egg.

I still laugh when I hear the word "slider". I lived in Chicago back in the early 80's and, to me, a slider was what you ordered at White Castle at 3:00 am after a night of heavy imbibing (not that I ever did anything like that ).

The phrase back then had a negative connotation, and described the cheap, greasy meat that WC used. As we used to say, "slides right down, slides right out."

But the burgers were $0.25 each and about the only thing we could afford on a musician's pay.

I've been tossing around the idea of making some fresh Mexican chorizo and using it to make sliders. A smear of refried beans on the bun bottom, sliced red onion, guacamole and this chipotle sour cream sauce I make. Maybe some oaxaca cheese.

"As we used to say, "slides right down, slides right out.""

Sliders to me means small burgers that go down easy and are cheap. They are tasty and fill the need for chow without breaking the bank.

Never thought about and don't wanna know about the sliding out part.

I've never had a White Castle slider, would love to try them! Apparently the frozen ones are pretty good, but haven't been able to find them 'round these parts.

the reason people think that frozen white castle burgers are pretty good is because of how the fresh ones aren't much better. it's a perspective thing.

i could go for a quadruple b burger. bacon, blue cheese, and blackening seasoning on a bison burger.

Too much bread for me. I'd rather have a sandwich. Back to the topic, I think any leftovers will work in a slider - from pulled pork (& peaches), to brisket or meatballs.

To make it more interesting, toast the bread in a waffle maker, & cut to size, or use Hawaiian rolls.

Years ago I ate at Nathan's in New York (Brooklyn - not the City), & I liked the chow mein on a burger bun. That might be another way to go.

I have White Castle's frozen burgers (in a pinch). I haven't seen a white castle around these parts. There are copycat recipes on the web, if you want to make your own.

Anyone remember the Lum's Ollie Burger? The guy split from Lums locally and started selling the burgers as Ollie's Trolly. Didn't last long.

there's a weird thing in belfast, ireland where they eat chinese takeout such as curry chicken on soft white bread (like wonder). it's not bad, really.
