Summer cooking can be so much fun. Care-free foods with tons of personality seem to rule the warm-weather months.
We love combining comforting favorites, like burgers and barbecue, with an unexpected ingredient or two. It makes classic meals just a touch more exciting!
Today’s Funyuns Sliders are a lively twist on traditional mini burgers.
Funyuns have been a favorite snack of mine since childhood. I remember eating them at the neighborhood pool with a lime soda, every summer of my adolescence.
I still get excited over Funyuns every time I pass them in the grocery aisle!
At parties and family movie nights, the zesty onion flavor and tantalizing crunch of Funyuns keeps everyone coming back for more.
Since Funyuns resemble breaded onion rings in both taste and appearance, I thought it made perfect sense to add them to sliders.
Our Funyuns Sliders have crushed Funyuns mixed into the ground beef patties to add a boost of flavor. The Funyuns crumbs offer a second purpose as well. They help retain the juices in the patties, so the burgers are ultra moist.
We placed the patties on small yeast rolls with cheese, tangy barbecue-mayonnaise, sweet pickles, and of course more Funyuns on top for crunch.
Funyuns? I say Fun-YUM!
As if the allure of itty bitty cheese burgers wasn’t enough, the pop of onion flavor and brilliant crunch-factor the Funyuns provide make these little Funyuns Sliders a guaranteed crowd pleaser.
This savory-sweet combination is an absolute delight at summer gatherings.
Like the idea of Funyuns on and in sliders?
Also try them in grilled cheese sandwiches, as a topping for casseroles, and instead of chips in nachos!
