Ground Bison Sliders
Throwing back to college years, there will always be a soft spot in our heart for a good slider. Now I know what you're thinking, and yes, there was an occasion or two (OK, maybe three…) during the college days when sliders were the remedy in the wee hours of the morning for having possibly a beer too many, but these are not those sliders! These are grown-up sliders... with grown-up flavors. If you have a hard time finding ground bison where you are, feel free to substitute a lean ground beef. The lovely surprise here is the diced onions in the slider patties that barely cook during the process, so they are slightly crunchy when you bite into them. Focusing on the fact that Cattle Drive™ can be used to replace black pepper, sprinkle as much as you'd like on the patties as they cook. To add more or less heat to the sliders either omit or add more or less Uncontrolled Chain Reaction™. The Chain Reaction is the only source of any sodium (salt) other than what you sprinkle on the patties when you season them prior to putting them on the grill. We hope you enjoye them as much as we certainly did (given that there was only one leftover after dinner… and there were only two of us for dinner…). Burgers made from ground bison can be very delicious. If you haven’t tried it before, you should! It may not be easy to find ground bison, so you can always substitute in ground beef for this recipe that seasons the meat with Cattle DriveⓇ and Chain ReactionⓇ seasoning and adds diced onions to the slider patties for more flavor. Once you try these ground bison sliders, you will wonder why you didn’t sooner. Give this recipe a try today and taste the great flavors for yourself!#SpiceConfidently #EssenceOfFlavor #CasaMSpice

LET’S GET COOKING
Preheat your grill to high heat.
Add the butter to a sauté pan over medium heat on the stove and melt.
Add the 1-1/2 cups onion and mushrooms to the sauté pan and cook over medium heat until they are evenly browned and caramelized.
Add Chain Reaction™ and Cattle Drive™ to taste for seasoning.
While the onions and mushrooms are cooking, Add the bison, onions, worcestershire, Chain Reaction, Cattle Drive, and Uncontrolled Chain Reaction (if using) in a mixing bowl and mix until blended and onions are well distributed.
Form 12 uniform sized slider patties and place them on a cookie sheet to season.
Sprinkle both sides of each of the slider patties with a touch of salt and Cattle Drive™ or Uncontrolled Cattle Drive™.
Quickly, but gently, get the slide patties on the grill and close the lid.
Cook for 1 minutes and check the bottom for grill marks. Once there are grill marks, flip the sliders and add a slice of cheese.
Sprinkle With additional Cattle Drive™ or Uncontrolled Cattle Drive™ to taste. Let the sliders cook until the bottoms show grill marks, then pull from the grill and onto a platter.
Assemble and garnish your sliders as desired and serve immediately!
