Guest Chef Wednesday! Sliders with Chipotle Mayonnaise


I wanted to devote another day to “flavored mayo” in reference to last week’s post. So today, we offer the wonderful mini burger named “slider.” Compliments of Chef Bobby Flay. While, I believe White Castle created the original slider, Chefs everywhere, ever since, have been frying, grilling and topping their way into mini perfection. These little beauties are quick, easy and pack a flavor punch! You can mix things up a bit by using ground chicken, turkey or salmon. So choose your base and get to grillin’!


Chipotle Mayonnaise:

1 cup mayonnaise

2 chipotles in adobo sauce

1 tablespoon adobo sauce

1/2 lime, juice

Salt and freshly ground black pepper


1 to 1 1/2 pounds ground chuck, 80/20

Salt and freshly ground black pepper

Cheese slices, your choice

Mini burger buns

Burger Bar (if desired):

Chipotle Mayonnaise


Red onion slices

Chipotle Mayonnaise


Chipotle Mayonnaise:

Add all the ingredients to a food processor and puree. Season, to taste, with salt and pepper.


Preheat grill over medium-high heat.

Form the meat into 2 to 3-ounce portions, packed tightly. Season with salt and pepper.

Place the sliders on the grill. Wait until they are nice and crusty on the first side, about 4 to 5 minutes and then flip and cook another 4 minutes. When the sliders are about done, top with desired cheese and close the grill, allowing the cheese to melt.

Place the slider on mini burger buns and top with chipotle mayonnaise and any other desired toppings.
