A NOTE FROM MARINA...
Hi friends! I’m Marina from marinamakesblog.com and I’m so glad you’ll be enjoying these this month’s activities at home. This month’s ice cream activity is so much fun and it’s delicious when paired with a burger. I hope you enjoy the cheddar slider recipe I put together for you!
We would LOVE for you to share pictures enjoying your dinner! Tag #datenightinbox & #marinamakeseats
Pressing down in the middle of the burger with your thumb to create a little indent in the burger will help it cook evenly.
Cheddar Sliders (makes four mini sliders)
Preheat your grill to a medium-high heat. If you prefer to cook your burgers on the stove top, heat 1-2 tablespoons of canola oil in a medium frying pan over medium-high heat.
In a medium bowl, combine ground sirloin, ground beef, salt, pepper, and cheddar cheese cubes with your fingers and form four small patties.
When the grill or frying pan is set, add the sliders and cook for 3-5 minutes on each side.
To assemble the slider, add the burger to the bottom of the bun and top with a slice of cheese, tomato, lettuce, ketchup and mustard.
Mini Vegetarian BLTs (makes four mini sliders)
To assemble the slider, spread mayo on both sides of the bun and top with bacon, tomato, a couple of slices of avocado and lettuce.
Ice Cream Enhancement
Ice Cream Toppings
Melt chocolate in microwave safe bowl for 30-second intervals, stirring it until it’s melted. After scooping the ice cream into a bowl, top with melted chocolate (it will harden and turn into a chocolate shell) and sprinkles.
