Smoky Sliders with Chipotle Mayo, your new go-to slider recipe.
This week’s Sunday Supper theme is all about burgers and hotdogs. Two of my favorite Summer foods. If you’re not familiar, the #SundaySupper Movement was started by Isabel over at Family Foodie as a project for “bringing back Sunday supper around the family table.” Who can argue with that??? And a big thanks to Christie of A Kitchen Hoor’s Adventures for hosting our event this week.
Every summer when the grill comes out so do the hamburger patties. Entertaining is easy when you have a grill full of burgers. Even though my favorite burger is all-American, simple with a slice of onion, a ring of tomato and yellow mustard, these sliders make an appearance at least once or twice each season. I found this recipe years ago over at Cookin’ Canuck. I’ve crowned the recipe “find of the century”. 🙂
You should really make time to grill up some of these little flavor packed sliders. The chipotle mayo is a wonderful compliment to the smoky cilantro-laced patties. Topped with a slice of grilled pineapple…MUWAAAA! What a treat.
Be forewarned, these little goodies do pack a some heat. I’m kind of a wuss about that, but found them to be just right. Just make sure you scrape the seeds and veins off from inside those fire-ey chipotle peppers in order to enjoy their flavor instead of the their heat.
- For the sliders:
- 1 1/2 lb . ground beef about 88% lean
- 1 chipotle pepper seeded and minced
- 2 teaspoons adobo sauce from the chipotle pepper can
- 1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro
- 1 tsp kosher salt
- 1/2 tsp freshly ground black pepper
- For The mayonnaise:
- 1/2 cup mayonnaise
- 1 chipotle pepper seeded and minced
- 1 tsp adobo sauce from the chipotle pepper can
- 2 tsp fresh lime juice
- The pineapple:
- 2 large rings pineapple
- 8 slider buns
Preheat the grill to medium-high heat.
n a medium bowl, combine ground meat , chipotle pepper, adobo sauce, fresh cilantro, salt, and pepper. Mix well with a wooden spoon or your hands. Divide the meat mixture into 8 equal pieces and form each into patties that are 2 1/2 to 3-inches in diameter. (Can be made ahead. Place on a baking sheet, cover, and chill. Bring the room temperature before grilling.)
In a small bowl, whisk together mayonnaise, chipotle pepper, adobo sauce, and lime juice.
Place pineapple rings on the grill and cook 2 to 3 minutes per side. Remove from the grill and cut each ring into quarters.
Putting it together:
Place the buns cut side down on the grill. Remove when the cut side is lightly toasted. Spread a generous amount of chipotle mayonnaise on each bun.
Place the meat patties on the grill and cook, lid closed, 5 minutes per side, or until barely cooked through. I like a little bit of pink inside to ensure optimal juiciness.
Remove the patties from the grill and place one patty on the bottom half of each prepared bun. Top each patty with a piece of grilled pineapple and top with the top half of the bun. Serve.
