Uncle Charlies Sliders
1 lb ground sausage hot or mild (I like hot Italian)
½ Tblspn McCormick Dried Basil
1 ea egg
½ C corn flake crumbs
¼ C Sweet Baby Rays BBQ sauce
1 tspn McCormick coarse ground pepper
1 tspn kosher salt
4 slices cheese, I use sharp cheddar
½ ea Vidalia onion, sliced thin and caramelized
1 C Slaw mix
4 ea spicy pickles
½ C mayo
1 Tblspn Tulkhoff horse radish
8 ea slider buns
In a bowl mix together sausage, basil, corn flakes, egg and Sweet Baby Rays. Season well with the salt and pepper.
Make 8 mini patties, and fry on a flat top grill or grill pan. While they are frying, add 1 Tblspn of butter ot the pan and grill your onions. Letting them grill until they begin to brown. When they have softened and are browning them, sprinkle them with 1 Tblspn of sugar (this will help the caramelization process.
Cook the patties 2-3 minutes a side, give them a little push to flatten them a bit. When you flip them top with your cheese choice and let melt.
Place them on the slider roll (Kings Hawaiian rolls are a great choice) and top with the caramelized onions and a pinch of slaw for a nice texture break.
Combine the mayo and horse radish and mix well. Spread on the top part of the slider bun and top your Uncle Charlie Slider!
