Minnesota Cooking: Taco Slider Burgers

My Slider Samples

Taco Seasoning

My hubby decided that quesadillas would be a good lunch, and that I should put sliced olives, onions, and shredded cheese with the burger.

A quesadilla, in our household, is all of the above, made like a grilled cheese sandwich in a frying pan with soft butter smeared across the bread. The butter browns, the cheese melts, and you use a pizza cutter to slice the crispy, gooey, yummy food things into a convenient, hand-held sandwich.

Enchilada Seasoning Packet

Spur of the moment doesn't always work in our kitchen, so of course, I only had an package of Enchilada seasoning mix. I looked online to find out what the difference between enchilada seasoning and taco seasoning and all I found was some blurb about the difference between fajita seasoning and taco seasoning. The blogger stated that taco seasoning was easy: cumin, garlic, and chili pepper. Again, I had two of the three. I used a Simple Seasonings Fiesta Blend for my chili powder.

I used those three. I actually did not measure, and when the ground beef was browned and small, I added a quarter cup of brown gravy powder mixed with a quarter cup of water and added it to the meat juice and seasoning in the burger. I had started with ground beef and a little water. Stirred the gravy in and let it bubble for a minute, then turned the mix down to a simmer. It got thickened fairly quickly.

Slider Buns

Actually, I needed to taste the mixture to make sure that it wasn't so salty it would stop your mouth in its tracks.

So, I took two Hawaiian slider buns from the package and placed them in the toaster. As soon as the toaster was done, I took the sliders out of the toaster and spread two of the four pieces with the hamburger mixture.

I had some shredded cheddar cheese and added a handful to each slider. Then, I topped each with a couple pieces of onion and a slice of green olive. Then, I placed the cover on the bun, and prepared to take my first bite.

Yum! Flavorful, the sweetness of the bun, coupled with the light saltiness and spiciness of the beef, and the saltiness of the olive and the bite of the onion. Wow. Was pretty good.

Had to share with you!
