wackiest burgers

Talk About Excited To Eat!

Thanks for Alex Sim-Wise for sending this pic – this guy really loves his burgers! And since it’s the new year, how about this!

Breakfast BLT Slider

Happy New Year – Start It Off With A Breakfast BLT!

And thanks to my wonderful wife Alex for this idea: A breakfast BLT slider! So easy to make and such a great way to begin the new year!

Chicago's best cheeseburger

It’s “SliderFest 2016!

Time for more slider recipes to celebrate the new year!

world's biggest burger

Study this chart: it’s a beautiful thing. But big massive burgers aren’t he point right now – sliders are three bites – you enjoy one, and then you try another – a different flavor…with sliders you can go around the world in your mouth!

Fry One On!

OK, I admit it: I LOVE a slider with french fries and tartar sauce…I make them all the time and I’m not ashamed. But now I have another reason to try some new sliders – and I want to share all of them with you!

“It’s All About The Topping!”

The key to a great slider is what goes ON the meat! Whether it’s cheese, spices or sauces, it is all about what adds a unique flavor to the basic hamburger patty. As for the bun, I make sliders by using small dinner rolls, but there are many specialty stores that carry slider buns as well.

best cheeseburger in the world

Your basic hamburger uses good quality ground beef with at least 15% fat content, to ensure lots of juicy flavor. I put minced onion in as well, and I use minced garlic as well. I also like to use a fun salt – like pink Hawaiian sea salt, and a fair amount of pepper.

That’s it for me – upon this temple of meat, these slider recipes add unique ingredients that give them a special flavor or crunch….

blue cheese slider

Mai Oui? Why Not, It’s Your Burger! The French Slider!

Here’s a great slider from France. The definition of a French slider is blue cheese, and blue cheese ONLY – take your regular hamburger, and fold in crumbled blue cheese into the meat before you grill.

As you see, pics on the internet also show that you can top the burger with a chunk of blue cheese and add grilled onions underneath!


Score! If you want to go crazy you can wipe a smear of foie gras on the bun as well, but I don’t add anything else!


Get Your Truffle On!

A new slider this year will add truffle mayonnaise and sautéed mushrooms to a slider…we’ll see how it turns out but how can it NOT work?


Late Night Snack In Barcelona – The Spanish Slider! – Hamburguesa!

Time to head to Spain for this slider recipe. Spanish flavors take this slider to a whole new level – as always, start with your traditional hamburger patty. The key here are the condiments.

The topping here is an olive tapenade, that gets spread on top of the cooked slider – you can find recipes for making tapendade, or you can buy it in a jar, but it includes black olives, capers, anchovies, garlic, olive oil, and lemon juice – cook the burger first, and after you turn it add a slice of Manchego cheese and Jamón – Iberico ham – prosciutto-like ham!

Spanish burger recipe

Let the cheese melt as the burger cooks and the ham warms up…Take a bite and you will wake up in Barcelona!

30000 calorie burger

The All-American Bacon-Cheeseburger Slider!

What can I say? Here is a burger that never fails to satisfy. Just toast the bun, cook the burger, add the cheese, let it melt, put it on the bun with some or ALL of the added ingredients, and you are set!

Top Bun
Cheese – melted and dripping
Bacon! Bacon! Bacon!
Slider Patty
Mayonaise, mayonaise, mayonaise!
Bottom Bun

See that? DO NOT DEVIATE – this is perfection.

Australian hamburger recipe

G’Day Mate! The Perfect Australian Sliders!

I tried to cut back on this recipe, but heard from several folks that it’s a favorite! An Aussie slider is just like ours, with two key differences. They add a slice of beetroot – OK, we call it beet, they call it beetroot – underneath the burger. It adds a great, slightly sweet and nutty flavor to the taste.

Everything else is the same – add cheddar cheese, tomato, lettuce if you like – and if you want to go totally Aussie, take the second step to complete fulfillment – add a fried egg on top….the best!

best hoppin' john recipe

Happy New Year And A “Hoppin’ John” To You All!

Of course, you MUST include some “Hoppin’ John” as well…as my friend and terrific Author Michael Ruhlman says, “this ‘Hoppin’ John’ recipe is a dish from the American south featuring black-eyed peas, often included in southern food and soul food recipes, traditionally served on New Year’s Day by those angling for good fortune all year long.”

The beautiful photo is courtesy of his wife Donna, and see his entire recipe on his great website here:


Follow Ruhls for ongoing culinary magic! And bite down hard on a slider while you are doing it!
