I have made a commitment to attempting dinner on a more regular basis. Cooking is not something that I do well. It is frightening to me that my boys are getting older and will start eating more and more.

I feel like I need to make an effort to get ahead of the pit of hunger which will be my home in a few years with 3 older boys.

With that in mind, I am trying some new recipes. And here’s one of those that I tried… and it’s oh, so good.

Let’s make some easy Sweet and Sour Sliders!

Let’s make this Sweet and Sour Sliders Recipe

These are called Sweet Hawaiian Mini Burgers and can be found in The Healthy Beef Cookbook by Chef Chamberlain and Betsy Hornick. It was my favorite during the tasting and I couldn’t wait to try it at home.

I was able to make them at home (unsupervised) without too much fretting and they don’t take long either which is good since I rarely plan ahead…baby steps!

Quick tips in making this easy Sweet and Sour Sliders

When you’re making the patties, be sure to squish them better, so they won’t look like meatballs. They would also make the sliders look so much better!

Also when it’s broiling time, I think you should wait until the meat is almost done before brushing with the sauce because if it gets too hot, the small pieces of pineapple from the preserves explode in the oven and make a mess.

Yield: 12 mini sliders

  1. I’ll be making these for my family soon. They were so easy to make. A couple of tips–put an indention in the center of your patty (just use your thumb) before cooking it to keep your patties from plumping up (learned that watching Food Network). Also, you can use a biscuit cutter or the cool slider maker we got in the mail to make uniform patties. 🙂

  2. These look and sound fabulous. You’re welcome to share this on my tasty tuesdays. I’d love it. But I think I’ll try it regardless. Thanks for sharing.
