Sliders, Perfect for CookOuts

Oh, time for fun and a cookout!
It is time for cookouts. During the many outdoors parties we have had, I have created sliders and barbeque chicken. I thought I would post some of my recipes for you to try.
  First off we be the sliders.

Sliders are great the take less time to cook and one can still stay on that diet.

The trick I have is adding liquid smoke and allowing them to marinade  over night or up to five days. they can also be frozen  for some on hand for an  impromptu cook out.
Also I found that using 80/20 hamburger is much better for  juicy and flavorful burger. This type will freeze well also.
Now for my recipe.

1.5 pounds hamburger (use 80/20)
1 Tablespoon hickory liquid smoke
1/2 Tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon three peppercorn pepper, grounded

Mix well,

To make patties, weigh out  2 oz size potions.  pat them out to about a 3 inch round patty. the trick is not to over pat them. Just lighting pat them out. Doing this will help the hamburger to remain juicy.  At this point you can freeze them on wax paper and place in a baggie or freeze prove dish.

These do not take long to grill. Preheat your grill to medium heat. Place sliders on grill, grill for 2 minutes on each side ( Place the top down while grilling so the heat remains on Medium) for a medium done hamburger ... More or less time depending on your liking.

I found 90 calorie buns at the grocery store. These are smaller buns, perfect for the sliders. Or you can use Dinner rolls.

Use smaller vine ripe tomatoes for slices and I love red onions slices. Dill pickles and Mustard and ketchup.
