Whew!! I am so tired, you would think I was in the Superbowl! I don't think you can make food fast enough to keep up with ten 17 year old boys. I made a lot of food today. Actually, I was busy cooking and preparing all day. Boys can sure eat a lot ! My son said the night was a success and I think it's possible they may not need to eat again for a month, based on what they consumed here tonight. Chips, Salsa, Chips, Dip, Cheesy Bread(so good), Mini Hot Dogs, Sausage Crescents (aka Bones), Caramel Popcorn, Wings and Sliders! I kept bringing it out and they kept on eating.... but such a happy group, who could complain? The sliders, which were so simple were a big hit.
Not the best picture, but what can you do when they're all clamoring to gobble the sliders down? We went through 3 platters of these! After these, everyone seemed quite satiated. And the Saints started winning!! I'll fill you in on dessert tomorrow....somehow they found room for that too....
3 pounds Ground Sirloin or Ground Round
18 brioche or dinner rolls
18 small slices cheese
18 dill pickle chips
1 tsp salt
11/2 tsp pepper
Mix beef with salt and pepper and make into 18 small patties. (approximately 6 per pound). Grill on medium high charcoal or gas grill 2-3 minutes each side. Warm buns on grill. At last minute, add cheese on top to melt. Transfer burgers to buns on large platter. Garnish each slider with 1 dill pickle chip and spread BBQ sauce on each bun. Serve with additional sauce on side.
** If it is freezing out ( it is here right now) either broil burgers or look pitiful and hopefully someone will go out and grill them for you. (Like my husband did for me tonight :))
