This is the time of year that I can’t get enough of the outside. I want to live on the back porch, excluding the pollen, of course.
There’s something about the warm sunshine, cool air and buds on the trees that give me hope and remind me that God is constantly renewing our earth and our spirits. When I hear the chimes ringing, the birds singing and the trees rustling, I know life is good.
Life is also good when I can grill out on the back patio with my friends or with my boys. Sometimes I don’t want a huge burger or we make an assortment of foods, so sliders are the perfect size for a lighter meal or to go with other courses.
The aged cheddar and caramelized onions on these make them quite the tasty bite.
Sliders with Aged White Cheddar and Caramelized Onions
1 lb Angus ground chuck
2 Tbsp Worcestershire sauce
2 tsp garlic salt
6 slices aged white cheddar cheese
1 large white onion, sliced
2 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil
6 small dinner rolls or slider-sized buns
Mix the Angus ground chuck with Worcestershire sauce and garlic salt until thoroughly combined. Form into 6 equal-sized patties.
In a large skillet over medium heat, warm olive oil. Add onions and cook slowly until caramelized but not browned or scorched, about 25 minutes. Remove from pan; drain excess oil.
Prepare grill to medium heat and cook sliders, about 4 minutes per side for medium. Turn off heat. Cover each slider with a slice of aged white cheddar. Let melt slightly. Place on bun, top with caramelized onions and other condiments of choice. Serve immediately.
