Sliders have become popular for so many reasons: they're easy to handle; they're smaller than regular patties, which make them feel healthier; and they're hamburger, which is never a bad thing.

Still, given their convenience, they are great things to serve at Super Bowl parties because two or three fit nicely on a plate and still leave room for the cheese dip, the baked beans, the chicken wings, the nachos, the cookies, etc., etc.

On the other hand, in most parts of the country, the fact that the Super Bowl is played in February means that it's freezing outside. That pretty much rules out grilled sliders, which is perfectly fine. Instead of relying on the grill flavor to make the sliders awesome, they can be dressed with all sorts of different toppings, letting each person make as many of their own combinations as they want. If nothing else, that says Super Bowl!

Super Bowl Sliders

With something like a Super Bowl slider, there are so many ways you can go. However, since the Super Bowl is in Dallas, Texas, this year it only makes sense to go with a Texas theme (even though everything is bigger in Texas).

Ingredients:
  • 2 pounds hamburger
  • 1 recipe of your favorite chili
  • 16 onion rings
  • Salt and pepper
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil (not olive oil)
  • 16 hamburger buns
  • Barbecue sauce to taste
  • Sprinkle of bleu cheese

Directions:
  1. Take the hamburger out of the refrigerator about 20 minutes before you start to cook, this will let the hamburger come to room temperature.
  2. When you get ready to start cooking, preheat your oven to its lowest setting possible By this time, the chili should almost be ready and the onion rings should be fried.
  3. Make 1/8 pound patties by dividing both pounds of hamburger into 8 balls, each the same size. It is important that each patty be the same size, so divide the meat before you start pressing out the patties. Sprinkle both sides of the patty with salt and pepper.
  4. In a cast iron skillet (preferably) or large regular skillet, add the vegetable oil and let it get hot over medium-high heat; add the patties and cook them 2 to 3 minutes per side. You should only add small batches (4 to 6 at a time) so that they don't overcrowd the pan. When the hamburgers are done, transfer them to the oven to keep them warm; repeat until all burgers are done.
  5. Construct the burgers by placing a patty on 1/2 of the bun, then adding chili, an onion ring, BBQ sauce, and bleu cheese; repeat for all the burgers and serve.
