Crispy Cheese Burger Slider on plate

Have you ever made cheeseburgers when you lifted them off the grill or out of a pan…and there was a piece of cooked cheese that was kind of hanging off the side of the burger?

Then when no one was looking you broke that piece off and ate it?

And that piece of cooked cheese was so good.

In this recipe, there is a big piece of that cooked cheese as part of the burger itself.

This way of making a cheese burger came from one of my favorite Food Network shows, Diners, Drive-Ins, and Dives with Guy Fieri.

Guy visited a restaurant in Sacramento, CA where they made this delicious cheeseburger with cooked cheese hanging over the entire burger that was served in a regular size bun.

About this Recipe

For this cheese burger slider, it’s made with an onion poppy seed dinner roll which tastes wonderful with the burger and of course the cheese too.

In addition to the crispy cheese surrounding the burger, the slider also has avocado and tomato slices in it.

And the ground beef has fresh garlic and jalapeno in it for some extra spice.

Let’s check out the ingredients.

Crispy Cheese Burger Sliders ingredients

Burgers – Ground beef, garlic, jalapeno pepper, salt, pepper and shredded sharp cheddar cheese

Buns – slider rolls and butter

Crispy Cheese Burger Sliders – Cooked burgers, skillet-toasted buns, avocado, tomato, salt and pepper

HOW TO MAKE THIS RECIPE

A printable recipe with the measurements and instructions is located at the bottom of this post.

For the Burger:

Chopped jalapeno on cutting board

Remove the stem and seeds from the jalapeno pepper (unless more heat is preferred).

Dice the jalapeno.

And dice the garlic.

Raw ground meat in bowl

In a medium size bowl, add ground beef, diced jalapeno, garlic…

…salt and pepper.

Mix all of the ingredients together.

Raw ground beef patties on plate

Next, form the hamburger into 4 patties.

Try to make the diameter of each patty the same size as the diameter of the bun.

In a small skillet, brown the hamburger patty on one side…

…then on the other side.

A large skillet can also be used to cook multiple patties at the same time. The size of the skillet just needs to be large enough for the ring of crispy cheese on each burger.

Cook until just before the hamburger patty is done (3 minutes before the burger is done),

Then, pile one cup of shredded cheese on top of each patty.

When the patty is thoroughly cooked, and the cheese has spread over the bottom of the pan (about 3 minutes)

…and the cheese can be lifted up along with the patty, transfer the patty and cheese from the pan onto a plate.

If cooking the burgers in batches, repeat the process for the remaining burgers.

Set aside while toasting the buns.

For the Buns:

Butter patty in skillet

Heat a large skillet on medium heat and add butter.

Mini onion rolls in skillet

Slice the slider rolls in half from side to side and put them in the skillet face down so that the inside of the bread gets covered with butter.

Cook until the inside of the buns are a golden-brown color.

For the Crispy Cheese Burger Sliders:
