Sam’s Slippery Sliders (they’re slippery b/c they have baby food in them!)
1 lb ground chuck
2/3 cup beef broth
2.5 oz jar strained-beef baby food
1 1/4 cups dried chopped onions
2 1/2 cups hot water
20 small dinner rolls
cheese and condiments (optional)
Place the dried onions in the hot water and set aside.
Mix the chuck, baby food and broth…it’ll be moist. Press the mixture into a 10×14 baking sheet (jelly roll sheet) making sure to even out the mixture all the way to the corners. Once it’s flattened out use a knife or spatula to cut the meat into 3 inch squares, but leave the cut patties as in the pan and stick the pan in the freezer about 10-15 mins.
Heat a large skillet (cast iron works best) or grill pan over medium-high heat. Add a handful of onion-and-water mixture to skillet. When water begins to steam (which should happen almost instantly), peel precut, frozen patties off the pan and place patties on top of onions. Cook, flipping once, to desired doneness. (Cooking time will depend on whether your patties are still frozen solid or have thawed a bit.)
After flipping, place a bun on top of each patty. On bottom bun place a dab of mustard, pickle slice and cheese. Remove patties and top bun from skillet and place on bottom bun. Repeat with the remaining onions/patties/buns.
*If you prefer you can use a straw to poke holes in the patties before they freeze. This let’s them steam and cook quicker (without having to flip them).
Buffalo Chicken Sliders
1 rotisserie chicken, boned and chopped
2 stalks celery, finely chopped
2 cups crumbled blue cheese (optional)

Preheat an oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Mix together the chicken, celery, blue cheese, and wing sauce in a 9×13 inch baking dish. Bake the Buffalo chicken mixture in the preheated oven until heated through, about 20 minutes. Spoon the hot mixture onto the dinner rolls to serve.
