So on Saturday I was in the mood for a burger….a juicy burger but with less guilt. I figured mini hamburger sliders would be a better alternative so I made a quick stop at the grocery store and made lunch for the family. This was my first attempt at sliders and it was actually pretty fun making those tiny burgers! I decided to make a peppercorn crusted hamburger with mini sweet buns. A while ago I saw a recipe for peppercorn crusted steak and I thought why not try it on a burger? so today’s the day and I figure things can only get tastier from here….right?
Truth be told this is my first attempt at putting a crust on any type of meat. I am in no way a chef and refuse to take myself too seriously. I’m just a person who is highly obsessed with food, cooking shows, and cooking blogs…..and when I say obsessed I mean obsessed. I’ve always had an interest in food but it wasn’t until the last four or five years that I decided to start learning more about food and venturing outside of the norm. I love to cook and entertain so I guess you could say that my food obsession is turning into a hobby.
If you’re worried about forming the patties don’t be. My suggestion is to roll the ground beef into a ball and use the palm of your hand to flatten the burger on a flat surface.
as far as seasonings go I’ll try anything once, but for these sliders I used pepper, garlic salt, and onion powder. I also mixed in green onions with the meat.
I made just enough for my family who couldn’t wait to try them as soon as they were done. I aim to please.
Ingredients are very basic as I’m sure you already know but here’s what I used!
1 lb ground meat (I used beef)
5 or 6 slider buns
1/4 cup green onion
4 Tbsp peppercorn (crushed by hand) to form crust
If you decide to make them or have your own slider recipe let me know all about it below; also be sure to spill the deets on any changes you make to recipe!
