Recipe Main Cat | Mango and Avocado Sliders

 

The hot weather has been sneaking up on us and is finally here. With high humidity and scorching heat a refreshing, delicious burger is just what you need. Full size burgers aren't always the best thing to cook as they can be too filling for some. Sliders on the other hand give those eating a chance to eat as many as they want without wasting any food.

While these sliders may be small they pack a serious flavor. The refreshing flavor of mango matches fantastically with the creaminess of avocado. The bun for this slider is more important than for some of the other burgers that have been "the burger of the week". For this slider, the best bun is going to be a King Hawaiian Sweet Rolls. The sweet flavor matches great with the ingredients, and works very well because of their size.

Ingredients:

Servings - 8 Sliders

Patty:
1 lb - 80/20 ground beef (85/15 acceptable)
1.5 tsp - Pastamore Worcestershire
.5 tsp - salt
.25 tsp - black pepper

Sauce:
2 - flesh of mango
.5 Tbsp - Pastamore Traditional Barrel-Aged Balsamic Vinegar
To taste - salt and pepper
As garnish - 1/4 red bell pepper
As needed - water

Avocado:
1 - avocado
1 tsp - lemon juice fresh (lime juice acceptable)
To taste - salt and pepper

Directions:

1. Preheat grill to medium-high heat.



2. Combine all of the ingredients for the patty, and then separate into 7-8 equally sized sliders.



3. Remove the skin from the mangoes and cut out the flesh. Be sure to avoid the fibrous core of the mango. Place the mango in a food processor and combine the Pastamore Traditional Barrel-Aged Balsamic Vinegar. If the mixture looks too dry, add a little water at a time until it resembles a sauce. Cut the red bell pepper into quarters. You will only need one of the quarters for the garnish in this sauce (if it looks like it needs more feel free to add more). Fillet the red bell pepper as you would a fish, removing the skin from the flesh. Since this is for a garnish, only the red skin is desired and not the flesh. Mince into very fine pieces.



4. Place the sliders on the grill to cook, only turning once during the cooking process. These sliders cook very fast, and may take only 2 minutes per side. Be sure not to overcook the meat.



5. While the burgers are cooking, place the flesh of the avocado in a bowl and mash with a fork. Season with salt and pepper, and add the lemon juice.



6. Remove the sliders from the grill when they are finished cooking. Take a roll and spread 1 tsp-1 Tbsp of avocado on the bottom bun. Place the slider on top, and then top with 1 Tbsp of mango sauce.



7. Enjoy the refreshing and light slider.
