White Trash Sliders

OK, here’s the deal… this recipe is absolute trash.  With a capital T!  And you know what?  I don’t feel one bit bad about it! Because sometimes it’s OK to get a little trashy!

Well, maybe I felt a tiny bit bad about it since the night after we had this for supper I served broiled fish, roasted cauliflower and sliced fresh veggies (no bread, no starch, no processed anything!) to recompense for going slumming the night before :)

But for our Family Game Night this past Saturday, these were perfect!  They’re fun, the kids can serve themselves and oh, yeah, they’re ooey-gooey mind-blowingly cheezily delicious!


White Trash Sliders
1 pound ground beef
1 pound bulk pork sausage
1 pound Velveeta
1/2 teaspoon onion powder
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
24 slider buns or soft dinner rolls, toasted or steamed

Brown ground beef and sausage until cooked through.  Thoroughly drain pan drippings from meat (I did this once half-way through cooking and then again when the meat was done).

Combine browned meat, Velveeta, onion powder and black pepper in a saucepan or crock pot* and heat on low until cheese is melted and bubbly.

Serve on slider buns with lots of cheap beer.

*If you make this in a crock pot and heat it more than four hours, you may have to add a splash of milk as the mixture will thicken.

    1. SH*T on a shingle is creamed chipped beef on toast!

      Delete
    2. For SOS (sh*t on a shingle) we do grounded hambuger meat with a milk gravy or a ground breaksfast sausge on either bread, toast, or biscuts.
      Everyone does it differnt, it's all about taste.

    3. Here in tip-top Virginia:
      Dona Kunz is right. SOS = Creamed chipped beef on toast. Used to devour it on Sunday mornings. Just sizzle the chipped beef lightly in a little oil to bring out the flavor. Beware: chipped beef is sold now in little pre-packaged paks and is pretty pricy, or sometimes you can get it in the deli.
      Christina Jones, you are making hamburger gravy and sausage gravy, another great meal, and both are delicious!

  10. Not sure what the recipe means by BULK SAUSAGE, does that mean breakfast sausage?

    ReplyDelete

    1. YES! Sorry! I have a lot of international readers (if ya can believe that?!) and I try not to reference items that aren't sold everywhere. I think "breakfast sausage" is an American thing. Maybe. I think??

      Delete
    2. Most stores sell a product in their fresh meat areas labeled bulk sausage. It is not in a roll like Jimmy Dean. I personally think the flavor is slightly different, better, but it could just be me.

      Delete
    3. Bulk sausage means sausage that is not put into casings (not into links). I don't think it has anything to do with a flavor. It just means "loose" sausage in a package, like hamburger/ground beef would be sold.

      Delete
    4. Bulk sausage / hamburger is just meat sold by the pound, whatever amount you want, as in a butcher shop or at the fresh meat counter in the grocery store.

      Delete
  11. I think this would be really good if you left the bun out of the equation and mixed the meat/cheese with some cooked macaroni, put into a baking dish, topped it with a bread crumb mixture and baked until bubbly. Yum!

    1. If you do this, they are no longer sliders!

  12. I make this except I add a little milk and a can of drained chopped tomatoes with chilies and use it as dip for tortilla chips, doesn't last long in my house..

  13. OMG! These look so yummy! I want to make them but I'm doing the south beach eating plan, maybe if I replaced the sausage with turkey sausage and the bread part with something whole wheat and not only drained well, but also rinsed the meat I can have this... I'm gonna give it a go, might not be near as yummy as these look but I won't feel all that bad eating them! Thanks for sharing!!!!

  14. We eat this 'cept add some Worcestershire Sauce to the mix then spread it on those party breads and bake it up! Yum!!!!!!! We call them Hanky Panky's :) ~kc_froglady

  17. If you use cheddar cheese soup it tastes amazing!

  18. does this recipe make 24 sliders?

    ReplyDelete
  19. I have been making these for years and have never once seen this recipe published anywhere! The only thing I do differently is spread the meat mixture on party bread and then freeze until set. Then I just put them in baggies so they are ready whenever I need to serve a little something! Men absolutely love these which makes them perfect for any football gathering!

  20. Oh and I use the hot sausage. Its just a personal preference.

    ReplyDelete
  21. Looks yummy!! Do I cook the ground beef and sausage together in the same pan? Or..ground beef in one and sausage in another? :-)

    1. It makes no difference at all. Do whatever is easier to work with. I find it easier to brown one, drain and then cook the other, drain and combine, then add teh remaining ingredients but again, that is just me.

      Delete
    2. I cook them both at the same time but I have a HUGE skillet that will hold everything and still let it get nice and brown. It doesn't matter - do whatever works for you!

  22. Wow these sound wonderful...anything with Velveeta is good you know :)

    ReplyDelete
  23. Hello Mandy! Another wonderful recipe. I added a few more spices to the mix this evening - garlic, cumin, and just enough cayenne to make you go "hmmm" without a heavy hot pepper taste. Love your blog and your recipes. Thank you for sharing and allowing us to share. :) Kim M.

  25. I have been making something like this for years. Instead of using sausage i use ground bacon and instead of the spices you use i use a packet of chili seasoning when i am cooking the meat. Delish!!!!! Oh and use a can of cheddar cheese soup. But I call them Cheesy Moe's

  26. read a comment above about freezing...ever frozen just beef/velveeta mixture? Planning several easy freezer meals for my teens and husband while I'm gone this summer on a trip. What do you think would be the best way to reheat? Thanks!

  27. I made these for our Friday "breakfast" at the office and they were inhaled. I'm kind of pissed because I was really hoping to take some home! Served them on Kings Hawaiian rolls and since there were rolls left over I guess I'll just have to make another batch of the meat so the rolls don't go to waste...

    ReplyDelete
  28. So I just realized I picked up the wrong sausage. I thought it was breakfast sausage. I grabbed a roll of WalMart brand's new breakfast sausage with bacon in it. Think that will be ok? Sounds like it'll be yummy right?

  29. My Mom and I have been making these for 40+ years... I add oregano to the meats while frying (or I've used Italian Seasoning as well) , then spoon it onto the party rye slices. We've always called them "Pizza Snacks" .. they've always been a hit! I fry the meats together in a large electric skillet, drain, return to the skillet and add the cubed velveeta cheese and mix. If the meats are still hot , the cheese melts right into it. You can bake or I broil them right away or I make up a couple of batches and freeze them. After I put the mixture onto the bread, I leave them on cookie sheets, put them in the freezer and after a few hours , you can put them in large freezer bags and use them whenever you want. I make them for my son , very convenient for him to take a few , put them on a cookie sheet and broil until the top starts to look bubbly. And they can be frozen for a long time.

  30. Who came up with that title for the recipe? Terrible recipe name in my opinion.

    1. Lighten up - it's a fun title!

    2. The name is what caught my attention! You have at least my permission to call it anything you want, as long as you make the recipe. Look at all the variations that everyone has come up with. That's why cooking is so fun -- you can make everything as you like!!!

  31. I am thinking of making this on New Years Eve but tripling up recipe. I am also more a ground beef type person, so how does alb ground beef to alb sausage sound? How about adding a packet of Lipton soup mix to mixture for flavor. Thanks

  32. These look delicious. And I love the name!

  33. Do you have to use velveeta? thanks!

    ReplyDelete
  34. I have made these for years except I put the "filling" on party rye then I freeze them and put them in large zip lock bags to keep on hand. They are ready for a party or just guest that drop by. If you have time, you can thaw or just back in teh oven. Men absolutley love these!

  35. Instead of using a skillet to fry the hamburger and sausage, I put the meat in a colander with a baking dish underneath (glass) and microwave (breaking it up halfway through with potato masher) until done. The grease drains into the dish from the colander. It saves trying to drain it afterwards. I also used Kings Hawaiian Rolls for the buns. We liked it!

    1. There's 2 pounds of meat so I'd say 8 large sandwiches or 24 sliders.
