The Cosmopolitan Cook shows us how to have a slider bar

Sometimes getting dinner on the table is hard.

Fixing something the kids actually want to eat doesn't make it any easier.

Chef Ragan Oglesby, The Cosmopolitan Cook, is here with the answer.

It's a slider bar!

It’s fun and it could even be perfect for your next watch party too!






Angus Beef Sliders  

2 pounds ground angus beef

1 tablespoon adobo seasoning

½ teaspoon pepper

½ medium onion (grated)

3 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce

2 tablespoons bread crumbs

1 large egg

mixed baby greens

mini hamburger buns or dinner rolls


pre-sliced provolone cheese (cut in quarters)

vegetable oil for frying



Preheat oven to 200 degrees

Spread thin layers of butter on slider buns & toast on a hot griddle until golden brown; place toasted buns on an oven safe dish & place in the 200 degree oven until ready for use.  In a large bowl, mix ground beef, onions, bread crumbs, Worcestershire sauce, adobo, pepper & egg; combine well.  Spoon 3 tablespoonfuls of beef mixture & roll to a loose ball, then flatten without tearing (size should be as big as a regular sized hamburger patty.  The beef will shrink to slider size upon frying.   Pan fry one side until slightly crisp & dark brown, turn over & place provolone cheese on top of the hamburger while the other side is frying.  Assemble burgers by adding a spicy mayo, baby greens & other condiments of your choice.
