Directions

Making

For Caramalized Onions

In the same pan, add more olive oil and saute onions for 7 minutes, while stirring.

Add salt, pepper, and sugar and cook together for 3 more minutes. Remove to a bowl.

For Special Spicy Sauce

In a small bowl, stil all the ingredients together. Set aside.

For Sliders

Add a little olive oil and buns, cut sides down, to a large heated pan. Toast until golden brown and set aside.

Add beef to a large bowl. Mix slightly with your hands.

Divide into 8 separate sections, form into balls, and press lightly to flatten into patties slightly bigger than the size of the buns.

Using fingers, make a slight indentation in the middle of the patties.

Season with salt and pepper on both sides.

Add a little more olive oil to the pan and place over high heat.

Add burgers, and cook for about 3 minutes on the first side. Flip, cook for 2 minutes on the second side, add cheese and cover to melt the cheese, for 1-2 minutes more.

Transfer burgers to a paper towel lined plate to drain.

Serving

To assemble, place arugula on bottom bun, top with bacon strips, add burger, top with a little special spicy sauce, add a pile of caramelized onions, top with the bun, and spear with a toothpick or sandwich pick.

TIP: Serve with some fresh crunchy veggies and use any extra special spicy sauce as a dip!
