American Sliders and Fries

OK So this is what we in the UK would call Burgers and Chips! But as I'm in America I have to do the right thing and go with the flow - they are called sliders because they are essentially mini burgers.

We did these yesterday in honour of the 43rd Superbowl (American Football!)

Will make 8 sliders/burgers


1 lb minced Beef Salt and Pepper

Additional fillings:
Red Onion Cheese slices Tomato Crispy bacon

Servced with corn on the cob and chips

  1. Add some salt and pepper to the minced beef and blend in with your hands, then take a small handfull and shape into curcular patties and place to one side.
  2. Heat a frying pan with a little oil and place the meat patties in to cook for about 6-7 minutes on each side until the look done to your liking.
  3. Slice some tomato, onion, lettuce and other fillings to your liking, Pat uses pickled gherkin which I personally think is just nasty!
  4. Boil some water and drop the corn in for about 6 minutes
  5. Put the fries (chips) into a hot oven as per the instructions on the packet - we cheated and bought oven chips! They are a little better for you anyway :)
  6. Serve with burger relish - or if you are me - mayonaise and tomato ketchup.
