Sliders with Chipotle Mayonnaise

Sliders, or miniature hamburgers, are a great party food when you want to have appetizers or smaller sized portions. To ensure that the seasonings permeate the meat mixture before I form my patties, I added Worcestershire sauce and English prime rib rub to the ground chuck and lightly mixed together.

Makes: 6 to 8 servings

Chipotle Mayonnaise:
1 cup mayonnaise
2 chipotles in adobo sauce
1 tablespoon adobo sauce
½ lime, juice
Salt and freshly ground black pepper

1 to 1 ½ pounds ground chuck, 80/20
2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
1 teaspoon English prime rib rub
1 teaspoon salt
½ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
Cheese slices, your choice

Mini burger buns Burger Bar (if desired):
Chipotle Mayonnaise
Red onions
Tomato slices

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.

In a large bowl, lightly mix the ground chuck, Worcestershire sauce, English prime rib rub, salt, and pepper until just blended. Form the meat into 2 to 3-ounce portions, packed tightly.

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.
