How to Make The Best, Damn Game Day Slider Bar. Ever!


  1. In a mixing bowl, using your hands, gently mix together the ground beef and chorizo. Then mix in the butter pieces. Lastly, carefully mix in the salt & pepper.
  2. Form into 2" wide by 1/2" patties. Refrigerate until 1 hour before guests arrive. Remove and let patties come to near room temperature.
  3. Heat cast iron skillet to medium high. For first round of cooking, you may need a tablespoon or two of canola oil.
  4. Place a few patties in the skillet. Don't overcrowd! They should not be touching! Sprinkle with a pinch of kosher salt & pepper. Let cook, without touching them, for 4 minutes on the first side. Flip and then cook for 3 to 4 minutes on the second side. Place in one of the slow-cookers that's been set on low; cover with lid.
  5. Repeat until all sliders are complete, keeping warm in the slow-cooker. The second cooker [set on low] is for the fries. To keep the potatoes from drying out, spray with a bit of cooking spray.
  6. Enjoy the food. Enjoy the game!
