I love burgers. And I also love cheese. So what’s better than putting the cheese IN the burger! Juicy Lucy’s started in Minneapolis but have since become a common burger type. In this article I’m going to make Juicy Lucy Sliders!
Once the meat is mixed, put it on a kitchen scale and zero it out. Rather than measure the individual patties, I just measured out much I’d taken out. So I made all the patties 1.5 ounces so they would be consistent.
To make the sliders, I used this slider press so that all of the burgers are consistent in size. There are three parts, the form, the bottom, and the top. You load the meat in and then press down and then pull the bottom out.
Here is what it looks like with the patties in the press.
Make sure to use a bacon press to get really flat bacon weaves.
