Beefy Super Bowl Sliders with Pimento Cheese
Recipe: Beefy Super Bowl Sliders with Pimento Cheese

Ingredients

  • 24 slices bread slices (I used Pepperidge Farm, original white)
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
  • 1 1/4# ground beef
  • 2 tablespoons grated onion
  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic
  • 1 recipe for Pimento Cheese (see below)
  • 12 olives
  • 12 toothpicks

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350˚.
  2. With a 2 1/2-3-inch round biscuit cutter (or any round, sharp edged object), cut out 24 bread rounds. Line a cooking sheet with foil and arrange bread rounds over foil. Brush with melted butter and bake on middle rack of oven until golden brown, 5-7 minutes. Remove and reserve.
  3. Combine beef with onion and garlic and form into 12 patties. Liberally season both sides with kosher salt and freshly ground pepper. In a large, heavy-bottomed sauté pan, sear both sides until rare or medium-rare (they will continue cooking in oven.)
  4. Spoon pimento cheese over sliders and return to oven. Bake until cheese has just melted.
  5. Place sliders on half of the toasted bread rounds; top with remaining bread rounds. Skewer the olives with toothpicks, insert into the center of sliders, and serve.

Time: 45 minutes (including time to make Pimento Cheese)

Number of servings (yield): 12 sliders
