"Super" Gorgonzola Sliders
Hooray! Football season is coming to a close. As predicted the Packers won, for all the wrong reasons which were explained in a previous post. Okay, I did sneak some peeks as the game was playing out, mostly to catch a glimpse of the commercials and halftime performance. While the performance may have produced a spectacularly choreographed light show my overall opinion was lackluster. Was it just me or did anyone else feel this way? I guess I'm getting old or I would like to think I have better taste in music. Enough said.
The highlight was the performance in the kitchen! I produced some last minute Superbowl sliders with a touch of Gorgonzola. I didn't write the measurements down (Remember, I don't usually measure ingredients when I create.) I can give "guidelines" on this one so you can replicate or at least come close! My only regret was not adding a little roasted red pepper for more flavor but they were good as they were.
Ingredients: For 2 servings, 5-6 sliders
About 1/4 lb ground beef (You could make these from a ground vegan "meat product", too.)
1 T green onions, chopped
1 handful of chopped fresh spinach
1/4 c Gorgonzola or blue cheese
Mix all the ingredients and form into small burgers. Cook in a skillet or grill pan, turn once and continue cooking until done. Serve on a bed of lettuce or make into mini burgers with buns if you wish.
