Big Game Cheesy Pretzel Sliders


Forget the chips and dip and impress all your friends during the biggest day in commercials…we mean football this year. These cheesy pickle pretzel sliders will have all your guests doing an endzone dance. Just don’t spike them! Recipe below.


For the burgers:
1 lb ground chuck and sirloin mix
Kosher salt, for seasoning
Pepper, for seasoning
8 pretzel slider buns
8 slices tomato
8 leaves lettuce
Ketchup, mustard, mayo, etc., for topping
For the cheesy pickles:
2 kosher dill pickle spears
2 slices havarti cheese
2 egg roll wrappers
Canola or vegetable oil, for frying


1.) Divide meat into 8 equal parts and form into patties. Salt and pepper both sides. Coat the bottom of a pan with oil and heat over medium heat. Cook the burgers on each side to desired doneness.
2.) To make the pickles: pat pickle spears with paper towel to remove excess moisture. Wrap pickle in cheese, then the egg roll wrapper, sealing with water if necessary. Heat 2 inches of oil in a large saucepan to 360℉. Fry the pickles on all sides until golden brown and crispy. Transfer to a paper towel to drain. Slice each pickle into 4 slices to garnish burgers with.
3.) Toast your burger buns, if desired, and top with tomato, lettuce, meat patty, condiments, and a slice of fried cheesy pickles. Enjoy!
