Spicy Whiskey BBQ Burger Sliders

 

There is a slight nip in the air which means one thing…well, maybe two thing:)  1. Fall is just around the corner.  2. FOOTBALL season is here!!  What I love most about football season is the gathering and eating.  Even if you are rooting for opposite teams every one is eating, laughing, and having a great time!  When we host a football party I always make sure everything is as close to bite-size as I can get it.  These spicy little burger bites are easy to make and so delicious!  Now, let’s watch some football!

PS – I will be making these delicious bites this Friday at the Nashville Home Show.  I hope to see you there!  If you still need to purchase tickets you can use the code: CHEF and receive a $3 discount!

Ingredients
  1. 2 pounds ground beef
  2. salt and pepper
  3. 4 tbsp. Butter
  4. 1 whole onion, cut in half and thinly sliced
  5. 1/2 cup Whiskey
  6. 1 cup barbecue sauce
  7. 1/4 tsp. crushed red pepper flakes
  8. 12 whole slider buns, Split
Instructions
  1. Form the ground beef into 12 miniature patties and salt and pepper them on both sides. Melt the butter in a skillet over medium-high heat and cook the patties until just about done in the middle, approximately 3-4 minutes per side. Remove the patties from the skillet and set aside. Drain off all but 2 tablespoons of grease, then return the skillet to the stove.
  2. Add the sliced onions in the skillet and stir to cook, about 3 minutes. Pour in whiskey (be careful if you're cooking over an open flame; turn it off momentarily to be extra careful) and stir. Allow the whiskey to reduce by half, about 2 to 3 minutes, then stir in crushed red pepper and the barbecue sauce.
  3. Reduce the heat to low and place the burgers in the barbecue sauce, turning to coat. Allow the burgers to simmer in the sauce until everything's bubbly.
  4. Place the burgers on individual buns add more sauce over the top of each one before topping with the other half of the bun.
