Juicy Lucy 6 – Packs, Sliders 6 at a time.

An original recipe from Chef William Cornelius & Buehler’s Fresh Foods

 

INGREDIENTS

Pregame on the burgers:

  • 2 ½ Lbs. ground sirloin
  • 1 Tbsp. sea salt
  • 2 tsp. black pepper
  • 2 tsp. granulated onion
  • 2 tsp. granulated garlic
  • 1 Tbsp. Worcestershire sauce
  • 12 – 1 ½” square chunks Deli American cheese, ¼” thick
  • 6 slices Muenster cheese
  • 6 slices sharp cheddar cheese

Bacon Burger Sauce:

  • 1 C. bacon crumbles, oven baked at 400F for 6 minutes, drain on paper towel, allow to cool for 10 minutes
  • ½ C. mayonnaise
  • ½ C. Thousand Island dressing

Build Da Burgers:

  • 12 brioche slider buns/snowflake rolls
  • 3-4 large leaves of green lettuce
  • 2-3 tomatoes, sliced thin (Roma tomatoes are perfect!), need 12 slices
  • dill pickle
  • *onion jam (optional)

 

INSTRUCTIONS

1. Preheat the oven to 450F.  Prepare a 13×9” non-stick sheet pan.

2. In a large bowl, combine the ground sirloin, salt, pepper, granulated onion, granulated garlic, Worcestershire sauce then mix well until all ingredients are completely incorporated.  Divide the mixture in half.

3. Press half of the ground sirloin mixture into a thin layer on the sheet pan.  For first layer of cheese use the Muenster then place 12 chunks of American in place where the center of each slider would be.   Leave room around the edges to press and seal the next layer of burger.  Cover with the remaining slices of cheddar.  Press remaining beef on a sheet of parchment paper to create the rectangle.  Do this by placing another sheet atop and pressing into desired shape.  Place top burger sheet over the cheddar then seal the edges.

4. It is a good idea to put a larger sheet pan below the slider pan before you are off to the oven.   Now bake for about 20 to 25 minutes or until cooked through.

5. As the sheet pan burger cooks, mix together the mayonnaise, cooked bacon, and Thousand Island dressing to create the Burger Sauce then set aside.

6. Place bottom layers of slider buns on a cutting board and dress with lettuce then spread Burger Sauce on the inside of the top layer of buns.

7. When the burger is done cooking, drain off the oil.  Using a large spatula (or two) place the burger on the bottom buns.

 

Last Step For Sliders

1. Spoon a dollop of Onion Jam in the center of each slider then a slice of Roma tomato on top of the dollop.  I find it easier to cut the bottom and tops separately with a big ol’ knife.  After cutting bottoms with burger, give each slider a little room on the cutting board.  Top off your 6-Pack Juicy Lucy Sliders with a pickle topped bun using a sandwich pick to keep things together!
