1 pound lean ground beef
4 ounces Gorgonzola or blue cheese, divided into 16 portions
32 walnut halves
2 whole wheat baguettes, sliced into 8 equal portions, then sliced horizontally
Heat oil in saucepan and sauté onion and mushrooms.
Transfer mixture to a large bowl to cool. Add salt, pepper, Worcestershire sauce, and egg. Add beef and mix by hand.
Divide mixture into 16 equal portions and form into thick patties. Tuck a piece of cheese and 2 walnut halves into the center of each patty.
Grill patties until cooked to preferred doneness.
Serve between baguette slices topped with arugula, tomato, and red onion, along with the usual condiments.
Pro Tip 1:
Making a really big batch? Want to save some active time? Need the grill space for something else? You can use your oven instead to cook up the sliders. Use a brownie pan or sheet pan to cook the patties under the broiler for a nice crust. Once cooked, pop out of the brownie pan or cut them to size from the sheet pan.
Pro Tip 2:
To make the sliders easy for guests to grab and go, place them in silicone baking cups before putting them on a serving tray
