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.
