My housemate has been ready for me to make this recipe since I moved in. It’s been, uh, NULL years… so sorry for the moderate delay.
I off-handedly acknowledged the concept of sheet pan sliders in a random conversation with James’ buddy Mike a few years back, after I first visited his region to observe a boxing match. I didn’t understand on the time that I would land up transferring into his residence just months later, or that I would spend the subsequent 700-someodd days listening to about how I had to make sliders for the blog, but this is the fundamental gist of how problems unfolded from then.
So, in enormous part, these Loaded Juicy Lucy Sliders are introduced to you by my housemate, Mike, and his stubborn-ass insistence that I make problems with a excellent deal less “weird” foods (he’s slightly picky) and lots extra “chopped meat”– which I eventually figured out potential flooring pork to these folks who aren’t from this nook of New Jersey.
Thanks for the persistence, Mike.
Give me slightly credits score for the advent of those bad boys, though, too– I threw within the Juicy Lucy, bacon-topped, and unique sauce components for nice measure, all on my very own accord. I don’t desire to pat myself on the again too a lot here, but they truly make the recipe special.
You understand what? Mike and I make a quite nice recipe brainstorming team. I guess I have to take his recommendation extra often.
But don’t inform him I stated that.
If you’ve by no potential heard of a Juicy Lucy before, they’re burgers which could possibly be crammed with cheese rather of just laying a slice on top. The huge factor about Juicy Lucys is that they pack in extra cheese (yum) and the cheese remains in its melted state longer simply due to the fact the interior warmth from the burger retains it that way. I thought this was a huge plus for social gathering food, so I decided to make a few in slide form.
These are in all probability one of the foremost flavorful little hamburger sliders for the least quantity of attempt you may perhaps ever see. There isn’t any sauteeing or grilling or shaping necessary– merely smush half of that burger meat down right into a sheet pan, ideal it with cheese, conceal with the last meat, ideal all of it off with a few bacon, and bake. It will all bake collectively into one big hamburger that you’ll be able to move onto slider buns and slice into particular person servings.
