The Burger Lab: How To Make Oklahoma Onion Burgers

A Hamburger Today J. Kenji López-Alt 20 comments

Onions and beef go together like baths and bubbles, like Wallace and Gromit, like hitchhikers and towels, like...you get the picture. They belong together, long for each other's company. A burger without onions is still a burger, but tuck a few slices of raw sweet onion underneath or spread a pile of deeply browned caramelized onions on top and you've got yourself something that is suddenly more than a sum of its parts. Nowhere is this fact more well-known than in Oklahoma, home of the Onion Burger, a burger that is nearly as much onion as it is meat. Today we're gonna talk about how to make your own at home. More

Oklahoma-style Onion Burgers

An Oklahoma classic, it's a slider in style, but with way more onions, which help the thin patties of beef cook up extra juicy and flavorful. More

Snapshots of Kenji's Sliders and More Food at the Sweetlife Festival

The Serious Eats Team 10 comments

What did we do this weekend? Make about 800 sliders at the Sweetlife Festival at the Merriweather Post Pavilion. Many festivalgoers came back for seconds and thirds of Kenji's ultimate sliders. It was a crazy day, not to mention interrupted by some scattered thunderstorms which made for some fun umbrella-protected griddling of burgers. Check out photos of us and other food vendors at the festival! More

Reality Check: Crispy Jalapeño Slider, Crispy Jalapeño Chicken, and Sweet Potato Fries at White Castle

A Hamburger Today Dennis Lee 21 comments

White Castle is often a divisive issue between my friends and me. Some of them wave their fists in the air, shouting, "If I ever see a White Castle slider, I'll throw rocks at it!" Then, my other friends whisper, "I love White Castle," as if they just admitted Steve Guttenberg was their favorite actor. For the most part, White Castle and I are, uh, friends that don't see each other very often, and only meet up while we're drunk. Then the next morning, after a long night together, I smell like onions and regret.

Since White Castle recently came out with new Crispy Jalapeño Sliders and Crispy Jalapeño Chicken sandwiches, and, as a bonus, their seasonal sweet potato fries are out too, I had to pay a visit to my old friend. It's like White Castle had triplets and I was obligated to see them.


Bristol, TN: Classic Sliders at Blue Circle

A Hamburger Today Jed Portman 8 comments

Once upon a time, Blue Circle was a popular chain with a few dozen locations in Tennessee and a trademark hamburger slider known as the "Circle Burger." I wasn't around back then, but I can write with some authority about the sliders at the last remaining location, in Bristol, Tennessee. More

Bar Bites: Shepherd's Pie Sliders

Marvin Gapultos 6 comments

While making a Shepherd's Pie isn't necessarily as difficult as tending sheep, it can be time consuming. Instead, consider the Shepherd's Pie Slider. The same seasoned lamb is at the core of this recipe, but instead of being sauteed, the meat is formed into patties and studded with thyme, rosemary, garlic, shallots, peas, and carrots. More

A Sandwich a Day: Spam Sliders from Marination Mobile in Seattle, WA

A Sandwich a Day Naomi Bishop 4 comments

Canned lunchmeat seems an unlikely ingredient for a signature sandwich, but the spam sliders at Marination Mobile make tracking down the truck worth every second of your time. Add a little teriyaki glaze, some special "nunya" sauce (What's in it? That's nunya business!), and a bun that brings it all together and suddenly scary meat product becomes savory small sandwich.

Detroit: A Tour of Motown's Sliders

A Hamburger Today Daniel Zemans 17 comments

Back before "slider" became a term to describe any small burger made out of any kind of meat, the word referred to small beef patties, steamed and seared on a griddle and served with a grilled onions on a cheap white bun. These delicious bits of nostalgia are all too rare in most of the country, but the tradition lives on in Detroit. More

NYC: Get Great Sliders at Bill's Bar and Burger

A Hamburger Today Ed Levine 12 comments

It's the non-beef components and the condiments that define and determine a slider's greatness and potential for serious deliciousness (though if the meat is overcooked or too lean, those are problems that can't entirely be overcome)and at Bill's Bar and Burger all these components work together like a great jazz rhythm section.

Dear AHT: How to Make a Palindrome Burger

A Hamburger Today An AHT Field Agent 10 comments

We recently received this email in the AHT inbox from British burger lover Andrew Whitehurst, a visual effects artist who lives and works in London. In his words: "I'm probably the most English person you could meet, as I have a love of cricket and bitter beer, but I do adore Americana and the hamburger, the United States' greatest contribution to gastronomy." Andrew's adoration in a slider-poor city inspired him to make the Palindrome Burger, a full-sized burger with slider-like texture and flavor whose ingredients read the same top to bottom as bottom to top: bread, cheese, patty, onion, pickle, onion, patty, cheese, and bread. Check out the slideshow to see how he makes the burgers, and read his email below for more on his love of sliders! More

Beer Pairings: What to Drink with Sliders

Drinks Michael Agnew 12 comments

A good burger will complement a wide variety of beers from pilsners to porters. But attention paid to ingredients and preparation can reveal the secrets to finding the perfect pairing. The toasty, browned crust on the beef and the sweet caramelized onions give these sliders a couple of flavor hooks to help you narrow down the selection of brews. More
