A Food Trend I Can Get My Mouth Around: Sliders
I generally don’t jump at all the latest and greatest food trends. I like my food simple. I like my food traditional. I like my food, well, understated I guess you could say. I don’t need a 20 ingredient list to make a meal. I want to taste everything that’s in there.
So, when I find a food trend I like, I embrace it wholeheartedly. Sliders are one of those trends for me. It’s just a burger….but wee. Seeing as I’m a fan of the weeone, and she’s a person, but wee, it makes sense I would be a fan of sliders. And I am. *Of course that’s convoluted thinking. It’s me we’re talking about!
I eat sliders out, but hadn’t made them at home. It wasn’t for any particular reason other than just not getting around to it. But tonight was slider night. A package of white dinner rolls from the grocery store. A pound of ground beef season with sea salt and pepper and I had 8 tiny burgers ready to throw on the grill.
One of my favorite parts about sliders is how quickly they cook! But while these were cooking I decided to make my own olive tempanade to top them. I don’t have any sort of recipe I followed, but diced black olives, some capers and mixed them. To that I added some anchovy paste, minced garlic, a tad of olive oil and some lemon juice. Voila!
For those who are wondering, althought she tasted the tempanade and loved it – the weeone had ketchup and sharp cheddar on her sliders. ;D She is 9 after all.
There is just something fun about sliders. And there are endless possibilities of what you can top them with, so they never get old.
