Make - Mini Burgers!

Recipe time!~
Today's recipe is inspired by my father's famous burgers!
In the picture, I used ground bison meat (and for the first time, too)! They are also quite delicious with regular ground beef. (And who knows - maybe even turkey or ostrich!)

Slider Meat
1/2 lbs.
Ground Meat
Slider Buns
¼ tsp.
Garlic Powder
1 Tbsp.
Butter, melted
1 tsp.
Worcestershire Sauce
Tomato, sliced into 4 pieces
½ tsp.
Soy Sauce
¼ c.
Lettuce, shredded
1 tsp.
A1 Steak Sauce
¼ c.
Mild Cheddar, shredded (optional)
½ tsp.
Onion, chopped
½ tsp.
Ground Black Pepper

1/8 c.
Mild Cheddar, shredded (optional)
2 tsp.
2:1:1 Mix - Mayo:Ketchup:Mustard

1.      Combine ground meat, garlic powder, Worcestershire sauce, soy sauce, A1, Salt and Pepper together in a bowl.
2.      Cook in a cast-iron skillet until cooked through (145°F or otherwise specified by customer). If requested, add a large pinch (about 1 Tbsp.) of shredded cheddar to the tops of the burgers after flipping and half-done cooking.
Finishing the Burger:
1.      Toast the buns and brush melted butter to the tops of the buns. Put ¼ of the lettuce on the top of each bottom bun.
2.      Add the meat patties.
3.      Top with a slice of tomato.
4.      Spread 1 tsp. of the 2:1:1 mix on the inside of the top bun.
5.      Sprinkle 1 ½ tsp. of chopped onion to the top of the bun and put the bun on top of the tomato.

Place 4 Sliders on the plate; 4 “Bread & Butter” pickle slices as garnish along the side (also act as optional toppings).

You can probably use just about any red meat you want for this, too.
Personally, I have only tried two meats: ground beef and ground bison.
Happy eating!
