Kenny Shopsin's Sliders

Photograph by Nick Solares

Kenny Shopsin wants you to know that sliders are not really hamburgers: "They might be made of the same components, but so is spaghetti and meatballs when you stop to think about it." The meat is steamed rather than seared like a burger, the bun becomes super soft from the juices, and in the recipe below, a good amount of fried onions are slathered on top. I've had these sliders, and I'm going to side with Kenny and claim, "they are definitely the best sliders out there." Make sure you eat them the moment they're finished cooking, and don't let them sit around and catch a cold while waiting for another batch.
