Triple Pork Mini Sliders
Combining the delicious flavors of hearty bacon, zingy chorizo, and ground pork, these heavy appetizers are perfect for game day celebrations or backyard get togethers.
1 1/2 lbs ground pork
1/2 lb fresh Mexican chorizo sausage, casings removed
1/4 cup pepper jack cheese, finely grated
1 small shallot, finely chopped
1 clove garlic, finely chopped
Sea salt and freshly cracked black pepper
Curly leaf lettuce, separated into individual leaves
3 plum tomatoes, thinly sliced
1/4 cup mayonnaise
1 tbsp smoked paprika
1 tsp hot sauce of your choice (we like Crystal or Sriracha)
- Mix mayonnaise, smoked paprika, and hot sauce in a medium bowl. Cover with plastic wrap, and refrigerate until serving. Can be made a day in advance.
- In a medium bowl, mix ground pork, chorizo, pepper jack, shallot, and garlic, and season with salt and pepper to taste. Form the meat into small, equally-sized patties about 1.5″ long.
- Cook the patties on a flat top grill pan on medium-high heat for 2-3 minutes on each side, or until cooked through. Remove patties from pan, and serve on Roasted Garlic Mini Croccantini with half a slice of bacon, lettuce, tomato, and smoked paprika mayonnaise.
