SlidersPosted by in Entertaining | Food
Can I just say, sliders do not strike me as Martha food. Can you see Martha eating them? I just can’t. Although I do understand it’s in the January issue of Martha Stewart Living as part of the Superbowl food section (does Martha have a Superbowl party? I doubt it).
My son loves sliders and orders them in restaurants every time they are on the menu, so I decided to make this for dinner. Really there’s nothing to this – all you do is make small hamburgers and serve them on dinner rolls. I didn’t make the shallot butter in the recipe because my family is very specific about what can and cannot go on a hamburger or slider. My son will not eat cheese. My husband likes mustard and ketchup. My daughter likes just ketchup. I require ketchup and relish. So I skipped the shallot butter and left several without cheese. I, of course, used organic, grass fed hamburger, which is something I am rigid about.
I did cook these under the broiler as Martha directs, even though I normally would have made them on the Jenn-Air grill. This was easy to make. I just wish I could have found whole wheat or multigrain dinner rolls, but I had to use white. I cannot tell you how long it has been since I’ve tasted regular white bread. A real indulgence in this house.
The sliders were good. There’s something fun about cute little hamburgers like this. They’re easy to pick up and eat. This would be a nice thing to serve at a casual party, so it’s definitely something that would work for SuperBowl.
I’m going to be making more of the SuperBowl items from this issue in the coming weeks.

Martha actually went to the SuperBowl last year with her friend Jane Heller and she had primo seats! (As for eating sliders…well, that’s another story. But she does love hot-dogs, surprisingly! Heck, she’s from New Jersey.)
Good for her. I can totally see Martha having a SuperBowl party or attending one – any excuse to entertain. I just don’t see sliders as her cup of tea. Maybe one, if it was made from Wagyu beef.
