Yields12 sliders

Cooking MethodGrilling


  • 2 pounds lean ground beef
  • 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 shakes of Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper
  • 4 cloves garlic, chopped
  • 1 teaspoon fresh thyme, chopped
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 6 ounces Gruyere cheese
  • 4 ounces arugula
  • 12 freshly baked slider buns
  • sliced red onions
  • sliced tomatoes


  1. Prepare the add-ons, such as sliced tomato, onion, and cheese.

  2. Season the burgers with olive oil, mustard, Worcestershire sauce, garlic, thyme, salt, and pepper. Mix thoroughly with a fork.

  3. Form the patties. For tender burgers, avoid packing them down.

  4. Preheat indoor grill pan for 3 minutes on medium-high heat.

  5. Place burgers on the grill. Resist the temptation to flip them for 4 to 5 minutes.

  6. Cook 3 to 5 minutes per side. Place the cheese on burgers during last couple of minutes of cooking.

  7. Plate the burgers under foil for 3 minutes. This will help the juices to say inside the burgers while the cheese melts.

  8. Slice and toast the buns.

  9. Serve with arugula.

Sliders are great! I also enjoy a medium rare RIBEYE STEAK on a grill like this seasoned after cooking with sea salt and pepper! Enjoy !

My fave part of this recipe is the combo cheese and Caligula. Classy flavor

I like to top my sliders with sauteed mushrooms and jack cheese and bacon bits, cant think of any thing finer .

I haven't tried sliders so this would be a great way to do it.

Pretty close to my recipe, although I like sauteed mushrooms and pepper jack.

Love it! I would add portabellos!

Awesomely perfect burger... Perfect size, perfect Cheese, Yum !!!

my favorite part of this recipe is the cheese.

I love sliders!

Sliders and perfect are a good combo!

I don't eat meat anymore, but have found some great meat and dairy substitutes that would work well as replacements for some of the recipe ingredients. Thank you for sharing!



I absolutely LOVE sliders! Finding new slider recipes is always fun and I look forward to trying this one.

This is a perfect recipe for my next football gathering!

Looks so yummy, I think this is a great recipe for our next burger day. We like burgers with bacon, lettuce, tomato and ranch dressing, so this will be a different taste.

Easy recipe for busy game-day Sundays!

Sounds really good. I like the thyme in there.

I love this burger/slider!!! Can't wait to make it again!

Yumm, I'd probably add some crumbled bacon to the ground beef before cooking, though! You can never have too much bacon

I'll leave out the mustard and leave off the onion!!

I think I would really like this one but would leave off the red onion as I am not a fan.

Sounds delicious!!
