Happy Labor Day! Hope you guys are having a great long weekend! I'll keep it short today and just offer up a last minute idea for any end-of-summer celebrations you might have going on. These sliders make perfect summer party food! They have a little heat from the chiles, a tang from the soy sauce, and fabulous flavor from sharp Havarti cheese. What's not to love?!
Enjoy your day (and these sliders)!!
Havarti Hatch Sliders
makes 12 sliders
6 Hatch chiles
1 1/2 lbs. ground beef
1 garlic clove, minced
4 teaspoons soy sauce
12 slider rolls (I used challah dinner rolls)
6 ounces grated Havarti cheese
about 4 tablespoons butter
Broil chiles on a rimmed baking sheet, turning as needed, until blackened on all sides. This will take about 10 minutes. Allow to cool, then peel skin and remove stems and seeds. Finely chop the chiles and set aside.
Heat about 1 tablespoon of butter on a griddle over medium heat. Mix beef with garlic and soy sauce until just combined. Divide into 12 slider-size patties.
Cook sliders in batches as needed (depending on the size of your griddle), about 2 minutes per side. During the last minute, place a bit of cheese on each patty. Set aside cooked sliders. Lightly butter cut sides of rolls and toast on the griddle for about 2 minutes.
Top each roll with a slider and some of the chiles. Cover, serve with ketchup, and enjoy!
