Cheddar and Beef Sliders



1.5 lbs    lean ground beef

1 tsp    onion powder

1 tsp    garlic powder

1 tsp    Worcestershire sauce 

2 tsp    Smak Dab Hot Honey Jalapeño 

1 tsp    sea salt 

10 turns    on a pepper mill

1    egg

¼ cup    bread crumbs 

10    slices of cheddar cheese

 In a bowl, gently mix the ground beef, onion, garlic, Worcestershire sauce, mustard, salt, pepper, egg, and breadcrumbs. Using a 1/3 measuring cup, portion and shape 10 patties. Press an indentation into each patty. 

Grill patties, covered, over medium high heat for 6-7 minutes on each side, quarter turning halfway. Meanwhile, lightly toast buns on the grill. Top with cheese the last minute of cooking time.


10     slider buns, split

10     slices of thick cut bacon

¼ cup   mayo recipe

¼ cup  Smak Dab Beer Chipotle

10     small leaves of butter lettuce 

1     roma tomato, sliced thin

In a small bowl, add the mayo and mustard. Mix well and set aside for assembly.

Preheat oven to 400oF and line a sheet pan with parchment. Cut the strips of bacon in half and lay on the sheet pan. Bake 20 minutes, flipping the bacon halfway through. Remove and drain on a piece of paper towel. Set aside.

Lay out your toasted buns and slather both sides with the mustard mayo. Place the patty on the bottom and top with 2 slices of bacon, tomato, lettuce, and add the bun top. Serve immediately.

Smak Dab Mayo 

1 egg 

2 tsp Smak Dab Mustard Hot Honey Jalapeno, White Wine Herb, or Curry Dijon

1/2 tsp sea salt

2 tsp lemon juice or white wine vinegar, plus more to season

1 cup vegetable or canola oil

For a basic mayo, blend together egg, mustard, salt, and lemon juice in a food processor. With the motor running, very slowly drizzle in about a ¼ cup oil. Gradually add in the remaining oil in a slow and steady stream. The mayo should be thick and creamy. Season with salt and more lemon juice if needed.
