In these fun-size Mini Mac Sliders, an all beef ground patty is topped with a homemade “special sauce”, pickles and lettuce!
I know I told you guys that I gave up fast food – it has been almost 7 months!! If you’ve seen Food Inc. you would too! However that doesn’t mean I deprive myself, instead of falling off the wagon and finding myself in the drive-through line, I think of a way I can make it at home.
Lately, I have been in the mood for a McDonald’s Big Mac. I haven’t been able to get them out of my head ever since I saw my husband eating one right in front of my face. Luckily I was not feeling well, or else I would have thrown him an elbow and snatched it out of his hand before he knew what hit him!
So here is my version of a not-as-big Big Mac but in slider form. Haileigh named it herself, the Mini Mac Slider.
To Make These Mini Mac Sliders You Will Need:
- french dressing
- sweet pickle relish
- finely minced white onion
- white vinegar
- kosher salt
- ground beef
- green onions
- olive oil
- black pepper
- kosher salt
- iceberg lettuce
- sliced pickles
- colby jack cheese
- slider buns
In a mixing bowl, measure and add 1/2 cup mayonnaise, 2 tablespoons French dressing, 3 tablespoons sweet pickle relish, 1-1/2 tablespoons finely minced white onion, 1 teaspoon white vinegar, 1 teaspoon sugar, 1/8 teaspoon kosher salt.
Then in a separate large mixing bowl add 1-1/2 pounds of ground beef, 2-3 green onions sliced thin then roughly chopped, 1 tablespoon olive oil, 1 teaspoon black pepper and 1 teaspoon kosher salt
Mix the ingredients by hand until combined, don’t over mix.
Form 12 small patties…
Add a few patties at a time to a grill pan preheated to medium/ medium high heat… adjust the heat during cooking.
Cook the patties 3-5 minutes per side.
Flip and repeat. You can then place done burgers on a plate and cover with foil to keep them warm.
Gather all the typical toppings; buns, cheese, lettuce, pickles and sauce.
Start with the Colby jack. 3 slices to be exact. Cut in half on a diagonal.
Cut in half again to form 12 triangles!!
You can also toast your buns, I like mine toasted and so does my girls! I place the slider buns on a baking sheet under my broiler for about 2 minutes.
Schmear some of the special sauce on the inside of the top bun…
Top the bottom toasty bun with a burger patty and a slice of Colby.
Then top with pickle slices and sliced iceberg lettuce.
And they look like this… a little messy… yet tasty!
Let me just tell you, my youngest won’t touch pickles or onions and she had no idea they were there!! She gobbled them up!
