Carmelized Onion and Mustard Sliders


1 lb ground beef
2 Tablespoons grill seasoning
12 potato rolls
2 medium onions, quartered and thinly sliced
4 cloves garlic, minced
4 oz sharp cheddar cheese, sliced
1/4 cup A-1 steak sauce
1 Tbs vegetable oil
salt and pepper
1/4 grainy, deli style mustard


Heat vegetable oil in a medium size skillet over medium heat. Add the onion and garlic to the pan, season with salt and pepper. Saute over medium heat until caramelized, about 10 minutes. Stir in the A-1 sauce, reduce heat to low and allow to simmer for a few minutes.

Slice the rolls in half horizontally. Spread 1 teaspoon of mustard on the top half of each roll.

Pre-heat a large skillet over medium heat. Place the ground beef and grill seasoning in a mixing bowl. Mix together. Divide the beef into 4 equal portions and then each of those into 3 portions, creating 12 equal portions. Shape into balls and press flat until they are the same size as the potato rolls. Add them to the pan. (They probably won't all be able to fit - you can do 2 batches, or you can pull out a griddle and cook them all at the same time). Allow to cook for 1 minute on the first side (the patties are small and won't take long to cook through). Flip them to the second side. Place cheese on each patty. Cover the pan with a lid and cook until cheese is melted.

To assemble the sliders, place a patty on the bottom half of the rolls. Top with a spoonful of onions and the top part of the roll.

Makes 12 sliders - serves 4 -6, depending on how hungry you are ;)
