Hello again, everyone, and WAR EAGLE! If you have no idea what that phrase means, you probably live outside of the South (and also are probably new to my blog). “War eagle” is the battle cry for my alma mater, Auburn University. We say it as a greeting or a cheer at football games, weddings, grocery stores…basically anywhere you see a fellow fan. This particular week, I am super fired up (even more than usual) about my beloved team! Last week, we had a huge victory over Texas A&M and the seemingly unstoppable Johnny Manziel. Now we are 6-1 and ranked #11 in the BCS! WAR EAGLE! I’m also super pumped because my awesome husband scored us some free tickets to tomorrow’s game. It’s not a big game or anything, we are playing Florida Atlantic, but it’s my first game this season, and I can’t wait.
Whichever team you cheer for (or even if you don’t cheer for one), I hope you can enjoy these awesome gameday sliders soon! I’ve had sliders before, and they are just small burgers. Nothing special about them except they were miniature. THESE, however, are special. The recipe definitely uses a unique method for cooking and even some unexpected ingredients. These are not just your typical burger patties from a grill, on a tiny bun.
The key ingredient is onion soup mix. I know, I know, onion soup doesn’t exactly sound like the most appetizing burger ingredient, but TRUST ME. You mix it in the beef, and when it cooks, it makes the burgers so moist and delicious! It’s also packed with flavor and makes it taste like there is gravy mixed into it.
