Beef Sliders Recipe | PBS Food

Fizzy’s Tip: Serve these sliders with ketchup, relish, caramelized red onions, guacamole, salsa, mustard, or barbecue sauce


Yield: 4 servings


  • 12 ounces ground beef formed into 8 (1 1/2 ounce) patties
  • 2 ounces cheddar cheese cut into four 3/8–inch cubes
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 4 slider buns


  1. Place one cheese cube on each of 4 patties, and then top with the remaining 4 patties. Pinch the sides together to seal the edges, and reshape the patties into 2-inch rounds. Season with the salt and pepper.
  2. Heat a 12-inch skillet (a cast iron skillet works great here) over high heat; once hot, add the hamburger patties. Cook until the cheese is melted, 3 to 5 minutes per side, or longer for well done. Transfer to the buns, and serve.
