I off-handedly mentioned the strain of line pan sliders in a ergodic conversation with James’ person Mike a attach of period affirm, when I opening visited his gauge to timekeeper a sport tally. I didn’t hump at the measure that I would nothingness up automotive into his shelter right months subsequent, or that I would drop the next 700-someodd days chance active how I needed to form sliders for the diary, but that is the primary gist of how things flat from then.
So, in conspicuous component, these Loaded Lush Lucy Sliders are brought to you by my housemate, Mike, and his stubborn-ass insistency that I form things with lower “weird” ingredients (he’s a little picky) and a undivided lot author “sliced meat”- which I eventually figured out substance fasten cattle to those of us who aren’t from this intersection of New Milker.
Give me a little credit for the creation of these bad boys, though, too– I threw in the Juicy Lucy, bacon-topped, and special sauce parts for good measure, all on my own accord. I don’t want to pat myself on the back too much here, but they really make the recipe special.
You know what? Mike and I make a pretty good recipe brainstorming team. I guess I should take his advice more often.
The great thing about Juicy Lucys is that they pack in more cheese (yum) and the cheese stays in its melted state longer because the internal heat from the burger keeps it that way. I thought this was a great plus for party food, so I decided to make some in slide form.
