Presto 7072, Black Slimline Griddle, 22"
FOR THE SAUCE:
3tablespoonssweet pickle relish
2tablespoonsfinely minced white onion
FOR THE BURGERS:
shredded iceberg lettuce
6slicesAmerican cheesecut into fourths (2 squares per burger)
toasted sesame seedsoptional
MAKE THE SAUCE:
Simply combine all the ingredients, refrigerate until ready to use!
MAKE THE BURGERS:
Combine the ground chuck with salt and pepper.
Mix by hand until just combined then divide into 12 (2 ounce) portions.
Place one portion of the meat mixture in between 2 pieces of wax paper and use the flat bottom of a drinking glass to press them until thin and flat.Transfer to a large platter or cutting board (I line it with more wax paper) and repeat with the remaining portions.
Preheat a griddle to 350°. Once hot, work in batches (if needed) and cook the patties 3 minutes on the first side. Flip, top with 2 squares (technically 1/2 slice) of american cheese and cook 2 to 3 minutes more.
Transfer cooked burgers to a plate or sheet pan and repeat with the remaining burger patties.
I very lightly mist the tops of the slider buns with ghee spray and sprinkled with toasted sesame seeds. This is of course optional.
Spread a spoonful of the mac sauce on the inside of each bottom bun.
Top each bottom bun with a burger patty, shredded lettuce and pickle slices. Replace the top of the slider and serve.
