This slider recipe is truly versatile and can be customized to fit so many dietary and lifestyle needs as well as a variety of personal tastes! When we make a plate of these, we love to use sweet Hawaiian rolls instead of regular slider buns for just the right touch of sweetness and will often substitute pickled red onions for the yellow onions for a tangy twist. Pro tip: top your sliders with the Pickled Prince's Picnic Pickles and Big Fork Brands' Original Chicago Sauce (instead of the mustard and mayo mixture) for a true *chef's kiss* culinary experience.

1 small yellow onion, diced
4 cloves garlic, minced
kosher salt and freshly-ground black pepper
2 lb. premium ground beef (80% fat, 20% lean)
3 tbsp + 1 tsp this little goat went to grillville, divided
1 6-ounce block sharp cheddar cheese
1/2 cup mayonnaise
1 tbsp ketchup
1 tbsp yellow mustard
12 slider buns or sweet hawaiian rolls
lettuce, tomato, red onion and/or pickle chips, for topping
Coat a sauté pan with a drizzle of canola oil and heat over medium heat. Add in the onions and garlic and cook until softened and translucent, about 5-7 minutes. Remove from the heat and let cool slightly.
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
In a large mixing bowl, combine the onion and garlic, ground beef and 3 tablespoons grillville spice. Mix well to combine.
Portion the cheese into 12 equal-sized cubes, about ½-inch each.
Divide the beef mixture into 12 portions. Flatten each portion of beef and wrap firmly around each block of cheese, making sure to enclose the cheese entirely.
Gently flatten each burger to about 2-inches thick and place on a parchment-lined baking sheet. Season on both sides with a pinch of kosher salt and a few grinds of black pepper. Bake for 20 minutes, flipping once halfway through, until the meat is cooked through to desired doneness. Alternatively, grill your burgers over medium-high heat for about 4-6 minutes per side. Remove to a baking sheet and tent with foil.
Meanwhile, whisk together the mayonnaise, ketchup, mustard and remaining 1 tsp Grillville Spice.
Coat both sides of your buns with grillville-spiced special sauce. Top with a cheesy burger patty and desired toppings. Serve warm, with extra napkins!
