It’s Labor Day Weekend folks, and I know many of you are planning gatherings with friends and family. A great way to keep their hunger at bay is to serve sliders. They’re usually my preference over burgers. They’re just a lot less cumbersome to eat, and you don’t feel overwhelmed at the prospect of eating them. So for this Labor Day Weekend why don’t you serve bourbon bbq sliders with coleslaw? They’re tremendously tasty.
Bourbon bbq sliders with coleslaw are a delight. Clearly an adult treat though. But never fear, skip the bourbon in the bbq sauce and they’re good for everyone, young and old. The bite size burger surrounded by sticky sweet sauce mixed with the creamy coleslaw will be a pleasure for almost everyone’s palate.
Bourbon bbq sliders with coleslaw are perfect for a crowd. 1lb of ground chuck makes eight sliders, you can double up on quantities to make twice as much.
You can replace ground chuck with your preferred burger blend if you like, but I really think the sauce and coleslaw in these sliders need a good quality burger blend that will soak them up but still hold together nicely. A generic burger blend is likely to either ward off the sauces completely or turn into a messy mush.
The same applies to the slider buns, a dense burger bun such as brioche or pretzel is what you need. I found my sesame seed slider buns at Trader Joe’s. Neither brioche nor pretzel, but they are quite thick with a somewhat fluffy texture.
If you reside in the US, I hope you have begun to enjoy your holiday weekend, and if you are looking for the perfect sliders recipe to share with your family and friends, then give this one a try, it’s just too tasty to ignore.
