Allow me to present the dish that could save a marriage. This super easy recipe gives you almost an unfair bargaining advantage and if you make it for his friends, too? Why, they’ll think you’re the bee’s knees and the cat’s meow. I’m not guaranteeing it but you’ll probably have the rest of the neighborhood banging down your door and asking for your number as well. I don’t know what it is with men and these sliders so keep this recipe close to you just in case.
Form thin patties out of 85/15 ground beef (don’t go leaner). Grill on a generously buttered pan, salting just one side of it (there’s enough going on that you don’t need a bunch of salt). When you flip the meat to the other side to cook, pile on jarred jalapenos (you know, the stuff that comes pickled) and top with a slice of cheese (any will do but I use Colby-Jack). Cover the pan for 1 minute to let the steam do its magic and get things all gooey and wonderful. Butter some mini focaccia rolls and when the meat is ready, just slide it in between the warm bread and YUM.
So maybe you won't be too pretty a sight making these (I imagine I am somewhat of a greasy mess when I am working over a stove) but the sliders are so good your guy’s going to kiss you 100 times anyway—I promise!
What are your guy-pleasing meals?
